Looks like it'll be a stacked QB draft class this year, as Oklahoma's Sam Bradford will reportedly be exiting school two years early and entering the 2009 NFL draft, according to the National Football Post.
Sources close to the National Football Post have told us that Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, barring an injury in Thursday night’s BCS National Championship game against Florida, will declare for the NFL Draft. The 6-foot-4, 218-pound sophomore and Heisman Trophy winner threw for 4,464 yards and 48 touchdowns with only 6 interceptions in leading the Sooners to the Big 12 championship and a 12-1 record.
I think it's safe to say that Bradford will be getting serious consideration for the top pick in the draft, given his outstanding college numbers, pro size, and the success of his Oklahoma teams. Detroit's been making due with Daunte Culpepper and Dan Orlovsky at QB this year, and it's going to be tough for them to pass up on having a Sam Bradford-Calvin Johnson combination for the next five years...combine them with solid rookie back Kevin Smith, and the possible addition of a solid young offensive lineman with the 20th pick in this year's draft (obtained through the Roy Williams trade) and in the course of one offseason Detroit's 30th ranked offense could go from terrible to incredibly potent.
Man, I hope they take Matt Stafford instead.
