Rams Draft Talk: Sam Bradford

With the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Rams selected Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford.

While there were rumors that they might trade out of the top spot or even take Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh, there was really no other choice but Bradford for the Rams at No. 1. There have only been a handful of teams that have made championship runs with only a sub par quarterback and they were teams that had excellent defenses (a la ’00 Ravens and ’06 Bears). Last time I checked, St. Louis is a little light in the pants defensively.

Bradford obviously has some durability issues and there are some concerns that because he played mostly in the spread at OU that he’ll struggle transitioning into a pro style offense. But he has prototypical size, is intelligent and displays an excellent work ethic. He was also extremely productive for the Sooners and has all the intangibles to succeed at the next level.

I think Suh was the best prospect in this year’s draft, but this was really a no-brainer for the Rams. Everything revolves around the quarterback position in the NFL.
