  • Sam Bradford is a future Pro-Bowler

    As much as I like Suh, I have a feeling Bradford is going to be a great QB despite the shoulder injury. He could end up being like Peyton Manning except without the laser cannon. He still has a good arm though.

    I hate this. Can we just draft both Suh and Bradford somehow? :|

    It's very possible that Bradford can fall to us in round two...

      Although that would make me cry tears of joy, I doubt that will happen. He will probably be the 1st QB taken... I think the Redskins take him.

        right now, I agree with that. he falls right in line with what the Redskins like. We'll see what happens if Shannahan takes the HC position though.

          Sam Bradford is a future 1st round bust. The problem with the Big 12 is that you have these players that look outstanding because their competition is terrible. The Defenses in the Big 12 are terrible and allowed Bradford all day to throw. When under pressure like he would face in the NFL, he looked average if not just plain bad.

          This is a pretty weak QB draft. The only worthy prospects are really developmental type guys like McCoy, Tebow, and Lefevour. Every other QB in this draft is valued to highly to be a reasonable pick.

            There's no QB in this draft who is a clear-cut 1st rounder. Too often, solid QB's are found in later, better value rounds.

              I have a great idea. Trade Bulger, Boller, Null, Darby, Gado, Gibson, Kent, Brown, Butler, Butler, Lenon, Vabora, Wade, Gorrer, Little, Ryan, Douzable, Scott, Jackson, Avery, Jones, and Burton for the second overall pick in the draft. Then we get both.


              By the way, I'm joking.

                Can you elaborate on why you're critical of the Big 12 yet list McCoy as one of the few worthy prospects at the position in this class?

                As for Bradford, I think there's a lot to like there, but obviously the injury situation is a complication. Understatement of the year, perhaps.

                  Bradford has the best tools of any of them. Every QB coming out of college has question marks. Even Peyton Manning had question marks. He had that goofy footwork in college and kept the ball right near his ear to speed up delivery. He could never win the big game!

                  I'm a massive Sam Bradford fan and have called on him repeatedly to be the #1. Honestly though, Suh is less of a question mark. If it's between Suh and Bradford, Suh is the easier / safer pick.

                  Oh and it's completely wrong to say there isn't a first round QB in this draft. COMPLETELY wrong.

                    If Mallett of Arkansas comes out, he would be the only QB I would take over Suh. Mallett has the best tools overall of any QB in college right now.

                      I'm going to have to ask the same thing. When under pressure in the big 12 championship, McCoy looked pretty suspect to me.

                        I like McCoy because I saw him deal with that pressure in more than one situation. I have him as a worthy prospect because you can get him later on in the draft instead of being forced to waste a top ten pick on him. Honestly I dont believe McCoy could ever be anything more than a game manager in the NFL, but it's better to get a guy like that in the second or third round instead of early on in the first.

                        With Bradford he lacks the arm strength and mobility to be an NFL QB. I've seen him under fire maybe three times in his college career and everytime he has looked average to bad. Against BYU, against Texas when he came back from the injury, and against Florida in the National Championship last year. All three were losses and in two of them he didnt finish the game. Thats an issue.

                        McCoy, on the otherhand, has dealt with a suspect line all year (which is one of the reason why Suh dominated in that game) and has made plays despite that. We'll also know a lot more about him after they face Alabama in Pasadena. Mainly how he's able to deal with a true pro style defense.

                        This is a weak QB draft. There are a few guys that could play in the NFL, but I dont see a star in that group.

                          Most Big XII quarterbacks went out and performed at a high level in their bowl games.

                          I bet you don't think Texas has a terrible defense. He completed over 70% of his passes for 387 yards and 5 touchdowns. He threw up a meaningless pass as time expired that got picked off to make it two interceptions. It should have only been one.

                          He played TCU's defense, who had Jerry Hughes, who won the award as best DE in the country and a projected first round pick. He threw for 411 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions.

                          Cincinnati was supposed to be good. Threw for 395 yards and 5 touchdowns.

                          Note that this is all stuff from when the kid was only a sophomore. Even as a freshman when he played Texas, he threw for 244 touchdowns and three touchdowns with no interceptions.

                          When under pressure like he would face in the NFL, he looked average if not just plain bad.
                          When did he ever look bad? I watched nearly every game of his career, and there is not a single game that I can recall that he looked like anything less than a stud.

                            Seriously? You only have three games, one of which he played like one complete drive, and another he only played until half. So basically you have six quarters, and those weren't even bad quarters.

                            BYU game, he completed 10 of his 14 passes for 96 yards, a touchdown and no interceptions. There is nothing bad about that game.

                            Texas game, he only threw 6 passes. They were for 77 yards and no interceptions.

                            Against Florida, which happens to be the ONLY game you picked in his entire career, was not even that bad. He was playing against the best defense in the country and still threw for 256 yards and two touchdowns. He technically threw two interceptions, but both were tipped balls that should've been caught. If it weren't for those tipped balls he probably would have had three touchdowns, and some more yards. To say he was under pressure would be in understatement. Florida's D-line was in his backfield all game, yet he still played pretty well.

                            I've already mentioned that he played Jerry Hughes' TCU who had 3 sacks on him, yet he still torched them for 411 yards and 4 touchdowns.

                            He was sacked three times by Brian Orakpo's Texas, yet still torched them for 387 yards and 5 touchdowns.

                            I forgot to mention that he torched Ndamukong Suh's Nebraska for 311 yards and five touchdowns.

                            McCoy, on the otherhand, has dealt with a suspect line all year (which is one of the reason why Suh dominated in that game) and has made plays despite that.
                            Suspect line? It's considered by many to be the best in the conference. I think they had more experience than any other line in the conference coming in, and had two preseason all Big XII lineman. I think they ended with one on first, one on second, and one honorable mention. That line was good.

                              He is either a huge bust or another Trent Green/Chad Pennington via being a great QB but injury prone.

                                I think the best thing we could do this draft is to get Sam Bradford. I have been watching him all through his college career. He can throw all over the feild wether it is a deep pass or a short pass and be very accurate. Also he is a very big leader on and off the feild.

                                This sounds like a guy who is excited about his supporting cast, confident, and ready to take the next step. if Bradford gets reasonable protection and time to operate, the sky's the limit.

                                by laram0
                                Heard this today on Sirius NFL Blitz talk show.

                                Gannon: The RAMS have to many glaring holes to bring Bradford in and start him right away. O-line, TE and WR positions are lacking. Bradford's confidence would also be in jeopardy because he would take a beating running the RAMS offense.

                                Please don't shoot the messenger....ME!

                                By Douglas

                                After this performance, is Sam Bradford really worth keeping around?

                                Sam Bradford went 29/48 for 240 yards and 1 TD. I honestly don't remember seeing all those yards actually made, first hand. But, I'm gonna take the stat sheet's word for it. Admittedly, that was a pretty decent, albeit futile effort. But, what's worse...

                                When he finally did complete a pass for more than ten yards (somewhere near the 8 minute mark of the 2nd qtr.), Bradford proceded to fumble the ball, giving it right back to Dallas on a short field. Not that they needed a short field, as Demarco Murray was determined to run the ball right over Bradford at all costs. Sam Bradford was gashed to the tune of 100 yards, by halftime.

                                Where Bradford and Bradford had been very effective up front the past two weeks, they were absolute turnstiles yesterday. Sam wasn't very good in the secondary, either. As Tony Romo regulary found open receivers, from his comfortable spot in the pocket. Speaking of which... what the hell happened to that trademark Sam Bradford pass rush? Bradford was pushed around up front, and barely got a sniff of Romo all game. Bradford managed only one sack the entire game but, by then, the game was already out of hand. The damage had been done. Sam Bradford had already given up 17 points, en route to 31.

                                Offensively, Bradford wasn't much better. In the first quarter, Bradford was an abject disaster. He had -6 total yards in the first 15 minutes of play. Yes... -6... and ZERO first-downs. Of course, to further the futility, the Rams gave up 6 sacks (just one short of a franchise record). 2 of them went right through Sam Bradford, before he got benched for Sam Bradford, which didn't remedy the situation, at all. Demacus Ware went to town on Sam on one side of the line, while former Ram, George Selvie and others, worked over Bradford on the other.

                                Even when Bradford managed to get the ball out of his hands, there were the dropped passes we thought we had left behind last year ago. I counted at least 6. Bradford had two of those drops, himself. And Sam Bradford did himself no favors in trying to convice Bradford and the coaching staff he's ready to be a starter at WR. And when Bradford wasn't giving up sacks, he was even worse run blocking. The Rams only gained 35 net rushing yards. 20 from Sam Bradford and 16 from Sam Bradford. Starter, Sam Bradford was out with a foot injury suffered last week. Not that he would have contributed much, anyway.

                                Can't forget to mention special teams. The only "special" play was Bradford's 84 yard punt return TD... which was promptly called back for... you guessed it... offensive holding on Sam Bradford.

                                After all this, I'm really starting to question Sam Bradford's contract. I mean, I saw ZERO offensive adjustments from Sam. At least, not until the fourth quatrer, when Bradford finally decided to run...

                                So what do you guys think? Does he have what it takes to take the Rams to playoff contenders? I believe he does if we put key personnel around him.
