Basically the thread title. Says in a month people will start talking about Bradford to the Rams as a sure thing. He hasn't spoken to people from the Rams but has spoken to enough people to guarantee it will happen. said to note the date as he said it first.

Also said Steven jackson could be traded as by the time the Rams will be contenders he will be done. It would take a 1st and "then some" but knows of at least 3 teams who'd be willing.

Ah. Well, I can see that. I assumed with Spags they would go D and take Suh, but I can't argue with Schefter's record of success. Especially if he's putting his rep on the line.

40+ million gauranteed for a DT in a 4-3 is just WAY too juch money especially considering the rams have drafted front 4 for many years now. Bradford was rated ahead of Stafford by most scouts last year... this seems like a no brainer to me.

One, SoCal would cry in a corner if we had to trade away draft picks to move up. I still think the trades in 2006 and 2007 continue to haunt him.

Two, Bradford is the real deal, as long as his shoulder isn't crazy screwed up.

TonyR

... this seems like a no brainer to me.

Taking an injured, overrated QB who has a very high probability of being somewhere on the spectrum of very mediocre to a complete bust, instead of the best player available (McCoy or Suh who are considered sure things), is a "no brainer"? Really?

Bradford may not be taken first overall, but if Schefter thinks he will then that means scouts think he is that good

Also whats not to believe about Bradford as a number one overall? Sure hes not the top prospect in the draft, but he is the top quarterback prospect. Also they have absolutely nothing for Quarterback but garbage. A blue chip prospect at quarterback is much more a difrence maker than a DT... IMO.

If Sam Bradford did not have the shoulder issues, I could see him as the #1 overall pick....but when he gets smashed into the turf on that frail chicken wing and busts up that shoulder again, it could really start to diminish his ability to throw the ball like he needs to.

Crushaholic
02-25-2010, 01:21 PM
Bulger isn't going to be in St. Louis, so I can actually see this happening. Suh is likely to be a playmaker in the NFL, but #1 overall pick money should probably be reserved for the leader of the team, which is usually the quarterback...

Supposedly Bradford is throwing fine already, he is just a little rusty from his recovery.

His pro-day should answer the injury questions.

It all depends on how bad somebody below them wants Suh.

Like I said he was rated as the #1 prospect last year... So if you think he is "Overrated" and has a high probability of being a bust... that's fair, but I think I'll trust schefter and his sources.

Bradford had the same surgeon as Drew Bees... My guess is if he says it's good to go that is going to carry a lot of weight.

Only people that projected him #1 were the media and internet draft junkies. Since he never went through the process we don't know how teams actually viewed him after they really broke down his game tape and worked him out. With way it going I don't trust any media story about what any team is going to do with draft. Misinformation is norm at this point.

100% disagree... there was just as much film and study of Bradford as there was Stafford. The only difference the lack of a pro-day and some interviews.

I'm not shocked, though I think it would be a mistake. The Rams have nothing at QB, but to me, you take the BPA at that spot and I don't think it's a QB and I'm not a big believer in Bradford and it's not just his injuries either.

Bradford.... 50-3....Thats all you need to know.

50 tds, 3 ints..... I dont care how good your supporting cast is. No one has ever done anything like that. Brady came dam close with moss and welky, but he still had more ints.



Shoulder surgery can be repaired. Thats why they do it. My rotator is all effed up. docs told me 100% recovery if i get it fixed. Sadly i can not afford to fix it, but bradford can afford the best docs in the industry. His shoulder will be fine.

Yeah, because the only people I make snide comments to are the only 2 females on this site, you and Blue. Oh wait, I do make snide comments all the time and there are more than 2 females on this site. Maybe if you hadn't harped on Ed Reed for almost 8 years when he wouldn't have been picked anyway if they didn't draft Lelie, you wouldn't get called out on it still? BTW, I'm not the only one who does it. Little help for you, anytime someone goes, "Ed Reeeeeeeeeed," in a thread, it's a dig at you even if they're not directly quoting your post.

Gee I've only seen it from you. I'll have to pay more attention. But I sincerely doubt that I'm the only one that's "harped" on Ed Reed for the past 8 years. And you don't know if we would have or not used that pick on him, but it's water under the bridge and just another example of Shanahan's ineptness in the first round and on defense. You are right and I was wrong, you do the snide comments, constantly, to everyone, so it's obviously a superiority complex. I feel so much better. :egbgb:

God, go cry about it some more. Boo hoo, someone's picking on me on the Interwebz, I don't know what to do. This will surely affect my self-esteem and real life. Anyone who can't deal with what's said on the Interwebz has other issues that they should probably deal with first.

And if you haven't seen the "Ed Reeeeeeed" posts in any draft woulda, coulda, shoulda, draft thread, then I can't help.

Oh, and we do know who would have been picked had it not been Lelie, because the team said after the draft that the only player left besides Lelie out of their 5 1st round targets was Javon. It was also mentioned more than once after they traded for him, that Denver would have drafted him had Lelie not fallen to their spot.

:Broncos:

There are exception to every rule, but in general most of the starting QB in NFL are between 6'3 to 6'6 range (gives them ability to see over the line). The smaller QB need to really find passing lanes and been good pre-snap reads. Physical size isn't only reason for success, but it sure helps.
