He might have been the No. 1 pick last year if he had decided to enter, but one year and two shoulder injuries later, here we are.
I had predicted St. Louis would trade back and still be able to take Bradford.
The talk about Bradford is mixed. Shoulder injuries to a QB are as bad as a knee injury to a RB. They are hard to rehab from and many are questioning if he can last.
If you hurt your shoulder once, you are more likely to hurt it again, and after all, football IS a contact sport last time I checked.
The one thing that can not be questioned about Bradford are the intangibles—the things you cannot teach.
His uncanny accuracy allowed him to fit the ball into holes that may not have been there for any other QB.
He was a two-year starter for a National Championship runner-up.
He played in the Big 12 against the likes of Texas, Oklahoma State, and Baylor....okay that last one was to make sure you were paying attention.
Regardless of his body, his body of work speaks for itself: Heisman winner, Oklahoma record holder (in mostly every passing category), and just an overall character guy. You haven't heard of him at college bars persuading women to party with him (too soon?).
The Rams need a quarterback; I just don't trust Kyle Boller.
