Re: Sam Bradford's pro day workout should clear up top of NFL draft

Here's a pretty interesting article...

RealGM Football: Wiretap Archives: Interview With The Scout, Part II

Quote:
Jeff Risdon: After his strong pro day, itís a given that Sam Bradford will be taken #1 overall. Iím not sold at all on Bradford and I wonder what your opinion of him going #1 overall might be?

Scout: Weíre damn glad it isnít us picking there. Look, Sam Bradford might wind up being a hell of a quarterback, but I wouldnít touch him at #1. The last two times he got hit, his shoulder got hurt. He doesnít do us any good if he canít stay on the field. Thatís why they need a QB in the first place, because Marc Bulger couldnít take the hits anymore.

JR: Aside from Tim Tebow, the player I get asked more about than any other is Jimmy Clausen. I know youíve scouted him extensively.

Scout: Yeah I have. Iíve seen every snap he took and a lot of them more than a few times. The thing about him is that kid just loves football and itís his whole life. All these people talk about him being this or being that, and they sure as hell havenít ever spent time with him. Because that kid is all about making himself the best NFL quarterback, and heís got the physical ability to do it.

Again they were still talking about Clausen....

Quote:
JR: But will he be successful?

Scout: I really think so. Look, heís got some warts. That kid was a world class prick when he got there, but he figured it out and grew up. You could really see it over the last year. They ran an NFL offense and (Clausen) made reads and drops that none of the other guys have even thought about. He just anticipates routes so well. Now would I like to see him gun it a little harder sometimes, yeah, sure. But for my money this kid is the surest bet in this draft (at QB).

To be honest I like Bradford but this info really makes me feel comfortable if we pick up Clausen.

But if I am wrong, and he trades up, as long as it's not Herschel Walker style, I will be ok with that.
Agreed. I've argued elsewhere that the difference between Bradford and Clausen may not seem to merit a sell-the-farm trade for ShanAllen, should they be QB-smitten. And ShanAllen are smart enough to realize that just nabbing Okung without selling the farm is a good idea.

I may be proven wrong but I don't think ShanAllen are going to trade up unless the Rams make it inviting.

Re: Sam Bradford's pro day workout should clear up top of NFL draft

Does this scouting report look familair to anyone?:
Quote:
Strengths: Is as good as it gets from an intangibles standpoint. Is an outstanding leader  both in terms of vocally and by example. An extremely hard worker  on the field, in the classroom and in the weight room. Is the most cerebral quarterback in this class. Has an outstanding feel for the game, makes few mistakes and understands the importance of ball security. Is one of the most competitive prospects in this class. A "gym-rat" type that just loves playing the game. Has sound mechanics. Delivery is quick and his release point is high. Is a tall QB that rarely has a ball batted down. Does an excellent job of finding throwing windows. Is at his best on short-to-intermediate routes. Has excellent timing and touch. Displays outstanding field vision. Understands how to make a pre-snap read and does a great job of picking up the blitz. Will make his progression reads, shows patience in the pocket and also does a good job of finding open receivers on the move after the original play has broken down. Has very good mobility. Shows quick feet and is fluid. Has a terrific pocket presence. Shows good balance and body control, especially for a taller athlete. Is a threat to run. Doesn't possess Mike Vick's type of explosiveness but has above average speed. Reminds us of a young Brett Favre -- shows some elusiveness and a lot of toughness as a runner. Good vision and a great feel for where the first down markers are. Is mechanically sound and accurate when throwing on the run.

Weaknesses: Arm strength is adequate but not good. Still needs to improve his overall bulk and strength. He can make most of the NFL throws but won't be able to fit the ball into tight spots that many starting NFL quarterbacks can. Very similar to Chad Pennington (Jets) in this area. If there's one facet of his accuracy that is inconsistent it is the deep ball. Ball occasionally will sail and he'll need to improve his timing in order to be successful throwing downfield in the NFL. He spent most of his time in the shotgun and in a spread offense. He will need to learn to read defenses while dropping from under center. He also will need to prove that he's not a "system QB", as he played in an offense that was wide-open and made a lot of the reads very easy for him.
I love Bradford as a prospect, and I'll be the first to say everyones different but I think we'd be much better off with Clausen. If anything this could easily be a 2004 draft situation where both QB's are good but technically the number 2 prospect is better.

Highlight below;
This is the draft profile for Alex Smith back in 2005
