With the first pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams selected QB Sam Bradford from Oklahoma.
Sam Bradford - QB - Oklahoma - 6'4" 235
Bradford, of course, missed a good portion of the 2009 season with a shoulder injury. He would have likely been the top overall pick (over Matthew Stafford) last year, but decided to go back to college for a shot at a second Heisman Trophy and the National Championship.
He brings a strong, accurate arm to the Rams, but there are certainly concerns about his shoulder that will remain until he gets hit a few times. Considering the state of the Rams offense, it might be worth handicapping Bradford as a long-shot second quarterback. He won't have a lot around him other than Steven Jackson, but the Rams dumped both Marc Bulger and Kyle Boller already this spring.
Bradford might be a good quarterback for a long time in the NFL. He might also be an injury issue that happens too early and too often.
In 2010, Bradford's fantasy value is questionable.
