The word on Bradford


"Really positive. I thought the whole workout was positive. I think he answered a lot of questions for a lot of people today. … It's another piece. It's an important piece but it's a piece."

— Rams general manager Billy Devaney

"He hit every ball, he was dead on it and looked great. This is what you'd hope happens and he did a beautiful job. … He lived up to it. He did what he needed to do today. It's a big day for Sam, too, after all of the time off. He came through in the kind of manner you would expect a big-timer to come through."

— Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll

"I knew he was going to be at his best. Sam is the best, man. He's a beast. That's why I call him King Sam."

— Former Oklahoma teammate Gerald McCoy

"I thought I did very well today. I showed a wide variety of throws. I didn't just come out and show the basic things; I showed some in the gun, on the move and different throws. I think I showed everyone that I can still make all the throws and my shoulder is just what it was before I got hurt. … At the end of the day, it's still just a workout. I'm not going to go to the NFL and throw routes on air to guys. I'm going to have to play against a very good defense week in and week out."

— Sam Bradford

"The guy was fantastic. The thing that is a little surprising is he had the velocity on the ball he did. He's only been throwing the ball for four weeks. I would imagine it's like baseball pitchers, you build up your arm strength. The guy threw every route. He did not throw one bad pass. It's a very catchable ball, he moves around well, he carries himself well. I think he's got a very, very bright future ahead of him."

— draft analyst and former Cowboys executive Gil Brandt

"I think he more than answered questions that he is ready to go. I don't think there is any question that he is where he was, but even further along."

— Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops
