OK, the Rams have never drafted a quarterback in the first round of the NFL common draft, after the American Football League merged with it in 1967.
The Rams also showed little interest in their trenches before the draft after giving away defensive tackle Adam Carroker, their 2007 first round pick, for virtually nothing to the Washington Redskins.
Gambling on a guy, with the first overall pick in the draft, who was obviously a system quarterback in college, albeit a brittle one, when he wasn't even considered a top ten talent in the draft is a move that could haunt them for a decade.
The Rams could have gotten a quarterback of equal talents in the second round, while selecting the best player in the draft.
They chose, however, to buckle to the media. To get a quarterback in a league that panders to the position. The Rams better hope Bradford can take a lot of hits behind their questionable offensive line.
The best thing the Rams may get out of this selection is a Thank You card from the Detroit Lions, who quickly grabbed the best player in the draft on the next pick.
