Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com has reported that, like Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen, Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford will miss the upcoming NFL Combine.

Bradford is still recovering from a shoulder injury that knocked him out of his 2009 season, and despite progress in his recovery, the pro prospect has decided to wait until his individual Pro Day session on March 25.

While Bradford had supposedly thrown 30 passes (at 50 yards) in practices two weeks ago, he still isn't quite ready to showcase his arm/shoulder in front of NFL scouts in an unfamiliar environment.

Bradford will, however, partake in all medical exams, interviews, and the Wonderlic testing.

Despite the arm injury and the catastrophic 2009 season Bradford had, he still remains (arguably) at a stand-still with Clausen atop NFL Draft quarterback rankings, and is still a strong candidate to be taken with the No. 1 overall pick.
