Ex-Agent: Ryan Leaf Blew Chance to Go No. 1: Ryan Leaf intentionally skipped a meeting with Indianapolis Colts head coach Jim Mora so he wouldn't be drafted by the team as the No. 1 overall selection in 1998, his former agent Leigh Steinberg claims in a new book. Steinberg didn't think Colts owner Jim Irsay would be dissuaded by the snub, so he gave this advice to his client: "''If you go to the combine,' I told Ryan, 'but fail to show up for a meeting with Mora, that should do it. Jim is a real prideful person who has a tendency to explode. I am not recommending you do this, but if you are desperate to go to San Diego, this is the way.'" The Colts picked Peyton Manning.
