Rams have to take Bradford

Best pro-day workout ever.

That's what some NFL scouts were saying after Sam Bradford threw Monday. The University of Oklahoma quarterback proved that he's over his shoulder troubles and should be the No. 1 overall pick in next month's draft.

But the pro-day workout shouldn't be the reason the St. Louis Rams take him first overall.

What should be is that he's an accurate, big, strong passer who understands the passing game.

Watch his tape.

He's precision-sharp and reads the field.

If Tim Tebow could read the field half as well as Bradford does, he'd be a sure-fire first-round pick -- even in my book.

One personnel director told me Bradford is the most-accurate passer to come into the draft in the past 10 years. At the scouting combine in February, some were debating whether he should be the top pick.

I never did. There was no debate. Quarterbacks win Super Bowls. Not defensive tackles.

What Bradford did Monday was prove that his surgically repaired shoulder isn't an issue.

What he proved on the playing field is that he will be a great NFL passer. Yes, I said great.

I live in St. Louis and your wrong! The QB'S don't suck, the O-Line is the problem. And for Bradfords sake I hope they don't take him. His shoudler won't be the issue, it will be his ASS, broken that is!!!! I pray to GOD they take SUH...

I agree with you, that's what I've been telling fellow rams fans, yes we need a QB but why draft one #1 overall just to hand the ball off to Steven Jackson.  The young QB's that are starting today all were put into a decent position, having a great RB, TE, and a solid defense.  We don't have nothing but all these so called experts is saying draft bradford, draft bradford, how bout we find some WR's or a TE, or a OLine for once that way when we get a QB, he won't end up like david Carr.

The kid, as the scouts stated, had one of the best throwing days EVER
And the scouts have NEVER been wrong, right?  Ryan Leaf ring a bell?

Bradford might be a solid QB...no hate for him or OU, but as a lifelong Rams fan I gotta say "Please take Suh with the #1 pick!"

Good comeback...please give me your list of Sooners from the past 10 years that are stars in the NFL (other than A Peterson and T Harris of course).  And before anyone jumps all over me I have nothing against OU.  A star QB in college doesn't always equal a star in the NFL.
