    Matt Stafford appreciates that $41 million Bradford gave up.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he's the first QB taken. Provided the surgery is successful and I guess there is no reason to think it won't be.

    Good kid. Best of luck to him.

    Lots of questionmarks .... Lot of money to give a guy who may or may not be healthy being the first QB taken.


    Of the other QB's draft elegible , how high would the first one go at this point ?

    I see Bradford going very, very early. Of the teams that are, lets be nice, not doing amazingly well this year, there are a few QB questionmarks. The Rams have an aging Bulger, and a franchise QB could be useful. The Redskins, well, heck knows what they're up to. Jason Campbell is hot and cold, and then the two young backups seem not to be in vogue with the (current) coaching staff, will depend on who replaces Zorn I think. The Titans still have their VY experiment to finish so are no-goers. The Browns seem to have no luck with their of their QBs, although I'd still be surprised if they hit the first round for a QB again, so soon after Quinn. Tampa have their young QB in Freeman. The Panthers could really do with a QB, and I think Bradford would fit the mould very nicely with the strong running game around him.

    I think he'll end up landing in Carolina, St Louis, or perhaps Seattle. As things stand at the moment, a lot of the struggling teams are in the process of getting their new QB into their team, or have recently been burned in the first round for a QB.

    Either way, I can see Bradford going early.

    Too bad we have Carolina's first rounder :). Hope we don't get near Bradford though. That guy has bust written all over him.

    Really? I see him as the safest QB in the draft. He needs to add some weight, but dang, he looks pretty good.

    I don't think he'll be a bust either.

    I think he will be a good QB, but would not spend top 5 money on him - before or after the injury.

    There's about 4 QB's (at least) that I think will be taken over McCoy.

    Love the Horns but I seriously think Bradford will be taken before Colt.

    Provided this shoulder issue is cleared up with the surgery he's having obviously.

    If I were running a NFL team I would take Bradford, Clausen, and maybe even Jake Locker before McCoy.

    since there are so many quality quarterbacks, several of them are guaranteed to return their senior year.

    They are all seniors except the top four. The only ones I think would return are Locker and Snead.

    He is a redshirt sophomore so he is eligible. It would be foolish of him to enter the draft though. He is not close to ready.
