INDIANAPOLIS -- Imagine the scene if Peyton Manning lingered around the Indianapolis airport baggage carousel waiting for his luggage.

Fans would swarm the Colts legend within seconds.

Manning's potential successor, Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, created no stir Wednesday upon arriving for the NFL scouting combine. He stood in plain view for 10-15 minutes without drawing a crowd, or even much notice.

Luck, presumed to be the Colts' choice with the first pick in the 2012 draft, left baggage claim the same way he had arrived: not yet the face of an NFL franchise. Luck carried a large duffel bag on each shoulder, plus a backpack, as he departed.

That was one visual to file away on the eve of the combine.

Bill Williamson, Kevin Seifert, Paul Kuharsky and I are the ESPN.com bloggers staffing this one. We'll be here through at least Sunday, with access to various team officials and the top college prospects in attendance.

Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt and general manager Rod Graves are scheduled for a media session beginning Thursday at 12:30 p.m. ET, followed at 2:45 by Seattle Seahawks GM John Schneider. San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and GM Trent Baalke are also expected to make appearances Thursday. St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead are scheduled for Friday at 1 and 2, respectively.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is not on the schedule at this time. I'll update if that changes.
