Jan 07, 2012 6:43 PM EST

Colts owner Jim Irsay has already made the decision to use the first overall pick in April's NFL Draft on Andrew Luck, according to a source.

Irsay sees symmetry in the franchise's history of draft picks and will not pass on the opportunity to complete it, according to a source.

In 1983, the Colts took John Elway with the No. 1 pick, only to see Irsay's father, Bob, trade the Hall of Famer.

Fifteen years later, the Colts took Manning.
