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.
