Does Jones Success Hurt Bradford In The Draft?

Just thinking, out loud, that Bradford will want to return to play as soon as possible, even to the point of not being completely over his injury.  The better that Landry Jones performs, especially as a freshman, supports the theory of Bradford as a system quarterback.  Should Bradford not play this week and Jones puts up a big win and big numbers against Miami, I think that Bradford drops greatly in the over-rating that he has as a potential pro quarterback.  He should have gone pro last year when he was hot on every-ones list.  He may make a good pro, but he will be a project, just as every spread/shotgun college quarterback is, with proper coaching at the next level.  Dropping down would be to his advantage as he would likely be drafted by a better team and able to watch and learn at his own pace.  Of course, this assumes he joins the NFL this year and not returning to lead Oklahoma again next year.
