ESPN analyst expects Rams to draft Bradford
INDIANAPOLIS — In a radio interview on Thursday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter predicted that the St. Louis Rams will take Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford with the first overall pick.
According to ProFootballTalk.com, Schefter said: “... And I believe ultimately, when all is said and done, that the Rams’ No. 1 pick on April 22, two months from now, will be Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford. I’m willing to take all bets on that one right now.’’
Schefter also said he had not talked to the Rams about it.
If he is right, that would leave either defensive tackle — Ndamukong Suh or Gerald McCoy — for the Lions with the second pick.
With about 400 members of the media at the NFL Combine here, rumors are flying big-time. (In case you’re wondering, there are more media members than players.)
Stay tuned for Day Two coverage of the Combine on Friday. Lions general manager Martin Mayhew is expected to check in early in the day with his thoughts. And, even though the Lions aren’t specifically seeking a quarterback, it could be a circus at Lucas Oil Field when the quarterbacks — including Bradford, Colt McCoy and Tim Tebow — meet the media.
