I think you got to go with Bradford because he was able to do the most with the poorer quality receivers. Watching a lot of Clausen highlights, there were a lot of times that he would under or over throw Tate, and Tate would somehow come up with the ball. Bradford, would put the ball where his receivers would be the only ones to get it. Other than greisham, bradford didn't have that many good receivers, and was able to get the ball to the receivers and not make them have to adjust for it nearly as much as Clausen.

Let's get Sam.
The legend of Sam Bradford grows.
BTW-You forgot Malcolm Kelly and an near NFL caliber OL.
You also forgot that the QB friendly system OU runs allowed Landry Jones to step in and put up some good numbers too.

Re: Bradford/Clausen now split among Mock Drafts

30 gut has got it. Stoops has a system that you can put in any above average college QB into and he will produce. I don't think Olkahoma's Wr corp was so bad either. That is why if we do go for a Q we go for a second tier one that performed well on a team on par with its competition. Florida or Oklahoma did play a few top opponents, but padded their schedule with the typcial patsies. On top of that the major conferences had an off year in terms of real strong intra conference competition. Ohio State ran away with the Big Ten, Bama with the SEC, and Tex with the Big 12. Only the Pac 10 had a few teams in the running for the title with 2-3 weeks left in the season.

First off, Kelly and Bradford played for 1 year together, I'm referring to SB redshirt sophomore year only. He had two, maybe three if you count duke robinson starters on his OL, so your statement also holds true, but at the same time, the Big 12 always has good pass rushers and defenses so it's not like the Oline wasn't battle tested or invincible. I wouldn't say that it was a QB friendly system at OU, because its not like a Florida or texas tech or hawaii QB friendly offense, He plays every down with a RB and TE in every formation and occasionally a FB, which to me means its a pro style offense such as what New England and Indy run. If I had to put Clausen and Bradford head to head in the whose offense is more QB friendly, then yeah, I'd go Bradford, but in general I think people really overstate OU's offense as a 'typical college' offense. Plus if you watch bradford, QB friendly or not, he puts the ball where only his receivers can get it, and threads the needle between defenders. His very accurate which is something every coach loves about a QB.

Re: Bradford/Clausen now split among Mock Drafts

Before we go off the wall on Bradford, can someone remind me of a player who missed either their last year of college ball with injury, or their first year of pro ball with injury (the qualifying factor is the practice time...were they unable to practice most of the year?), and went on to acheive great success.

I'm not talking about relative success at a position...that's what we already have at the QB position. I'm talking about unquestionable, best of era (or in the discussion) at their position. Made a lot of pro bowls early?

I'm sure if we go back far enough, said player exists. I just can't think of the last one who, like Sam Bradford, basically didn't practice all year after the BYU game, and went on and didn't skip a beat, continuing on at the next level as if the injury year simply never happened.

The first two years of Bradford's college career suggest a player that was destined for NFL stardom. The most critical year leaves us with a player that is, at best, injury prone, and at worst, too unrefined to make the jump. The question is: which NFL comparable would help me reconcile the two "careers" Sam Bradford had. I have statistical comparables, but they suggest simple mediocrity. I'm looking for something more relevant to the player himself.

Re: Bradford/Clausen now split among Mock Drafts

Bradford basically didn't practice after the second injury in mid-October against Texas, after BYU (save for a few days off) he was still practicing, albeit limited on some days.

Look dude, i got nothing against Bradford.
But people are starting to talk this dude up as some sort of can't miss prospect by downing the other QBs and the level of competition and system etc..
Bradford has many of the same flaws as the other QBs you mention.
I'm not saying that OU running a QB friendly offense is a knock just that its in the same category as Texas, Florida, WVU etc. Also, how can you deny that OU runs a QB friendly offense when freshmen Landry Jones steps in after Bradfords injury and puts up some good numbers himself 3,198 yds 26 TDs.

I just don't see Shanny and Allen drafting Bradford. 15 pounds of muscle isn't going to turn him into a rocket-arm like Elway or Cutler. I mean even healthy he doesn't seem like the guy...add the serious injury concerns and it just doesn't fit.

It's called getting good recruits, which Bob Stoops does year in and year out. No one had Paul Thompson as a great NFL QB when he was at OU a few years ago.

And you're forgetting the pro style system Bradford ran his freshman year where he put up 3,100 yard 36 TD's and 8 Int's. And Malcolm Kelly hasn't done much lately to prove that he wasn't a product of good QB play.

Re: Bradford/Clausen now split among Mock Drafts

I'd also like to point out the irony that Shanahan runs a QB friendly system.

Quote:
"You have to be accurate," Shanahan said. "You have to be passionate. You have to love what you're doing and study the game inside-out. Some guys are talkers; others are quiet. I've seen people lead in a lot of different ways. ... But you have to have a burning desire to be the best you can."

Bradford is easily the most accurate QB in this draft.

Jason Allen, the University of Tennessee safety (drafted by the Dolphins), was picked somewhere between 16-18 in 2006, and hasn't produced like a first round pick.

Antonio Cromartie was picked in roughly the same range the same year. He's got a pro bowl appearance. But he's had an up and down career.

Neither of those guys were top five picks, but that was probably as much about being defensive backs as being injured. Darrelle Revis, for example, was the 14th overall pick in 2007. People knew he was great at the time, but it's tough to justify a top ten pick on a DB unless you know he's going to be THIS good. Ed Reed was the 23rd? overall pick in 2002.

^I'm still a little sketch on Berry, but I do think he is an upgrade over Horton/Landry. But not worth us taking with our first round pick
