JACKSONVILLE, Fla.—The Indianapolis Colts have locked up the top pick in April's NFL draft, setting the stage to select Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.

Maurice Jones-Drew ran for a season-high 169 yards, clinching the NFL rushing title and breaking Fred Taylor's single-season franchise record, and the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Colts 19-13 in Sunday's season finale.

The Jaguars (5-11) became the first AFC South opponent to sweep Indianapolis (2-14) since 2002 and gave outgoing owner Wayne Weaver a victory in his final game.

The Colts may have been the big winners, though. Indy would have dropped to the No. 2 spot in the draft with a victory in Jacksonville. Instead, owner Jim Irsay will have the choice to draft Luck and give the team a young quarterback to join four-time MVP Peyton Manning.
