An Agents Take: A look at Bradford's NFL future

Football News - J. Robert Byrom

Our good friends from the National Football Post asked us to  include and link to this great Bradford Article. -JRB Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford said he will enter the NFL Draft, if he’s healthy. I assume Sam and his family will go without hiring an agent until they know for certain if he intends to make the leap to the NFL.
As I’ve written previously, Sam is surrounded by knowledgeable people, including his father, who will most likely be the point man gathering information from the league. The fact they began the process last year will likely give them a better understanding of it this time.

Sam BradfordHow high will an NFL team be willing to draft Bradford?

I would assume the second injury to his throwing shoulder put Bradford over the top since he clearly wouldn’t want to be in the same situation again next season with the Sooners. The “what if” factor is just too big to ignore.

Pundits are already saying Sam will not be a top-10 pick in the 2010 draft, probably because there are too many question marks to earn him substantial guaranteed money.

If Bradford does decide to commit to the draft, he has until Jan. 15 to submit his name. So the big question is: Will he be far enough along physically by then to make a definitive decision? With an expected rehab time of four to six months, that puts his full recovery at the end of April, leaving little or no time for a workout before the draft. No workout means he would be a “high-risk” draft choice. Being high risk could mean the second round.
