    I love Bradford as a project. I never had a doubt in my mind that he would do well at the next level.

    None of this year's QB screams Franchise player to me. Glad we don't have to draft a starter this year.

    They said the same of Matt Ryan.

    I think this workout will have almost secured Bradford that #1 draft spot.

    Good news for the Bucs

    I disagree. I see potential just oozing out of Bradford. That kid was born to be an impact player in the NFL.

    Yeah, I think he'll do really well in the NFL. As long as the Rams build a team around him they can be a force in a few years. The Lions are in a VERY good position if Bradford is selected #1. Do they take the much heralded DT that is Suh (or even McCoy who some say is better), or trade down and collect draft picks and grab Okung to protect their franchise QB?

    I agree with with you. I think the Rams will take Bradford #1 after his pro day performance. The Bucs indeed will be handed one of the 2 best dt's in the draft. They are in the sweet spot at the top.

    One of the guys on NFLNetwork when asked who Bradford best compares to said Matt Schaub.

    Yeah, I saw the Schaub comment as well, IIRC, said its due to the accuracy but the weakish arm.

    This probably makes him a lock at #1.

    Anyone concerned over the non success rate of OU QBs in the NFL...and even if his shoulder is ok for now, it just seems like he is at a higher risk for the injury to reoccur and the Rams QBs do get hit more than avg...the good thing is if he does get drafted by the Rams maybe Bulger can play decent enough so Bradford can observe but if the Rams struggle there will be pressure to throw the #1 pick into the fire...I hope he does well b/c he came back, got injured, persevered and still has a shot at being the #1 overall pick.

    Sam Bradford is almost everything you want in a quarterback. Unlike Jimmy Clausen, Bradford will easily gain the respect of veterans and his teamates if he starts to win games and play well. As long as his shoulder is okay he should be a no-brainer.

    I am not going to dawg on Bradford, but I feel that this is a system QB draft where years later we will be talking about a guy from the third round or later having a better career than the guys in the first round.

    Eh this system Clausen played in was about as pro style as it gets in college football. It sure seems like every single other guy that is projected to go in the top four rounds fits that description though.

    I was wondering if anyone else heard about other OU players during their pro day. I'm really looking into Chris Brown with the 6th round pick. Anyone hear how he did?

    I should have been more granular in that I would not spend a high draft pick on a QB because I do not believe there will not be much of a delta between these prospects in two to three years.

    Id bet on Bradford being succesful if he goes into a good system. Thats what helped Ryans transition

    Gil Brandt said the exact same thing about Alex Smith.

    He is the best QB to come out since Ryans. He would of/ should of been the number #1 pick lst year. I predict he's going to be really good.
