Schefter Seems Convinced Rams Will Take Sam Bradford In NFL Draft

Appearing on ESPN Radio, Adam Schefter said he's "willing to take bets" that the Rams will select a quarterback, specifically Sam Bradford out of Oklahoma, with the first overall selection in the NFL Draft.

On the basis of what I've talked to people around the league, everything I've heard and at some point it's gonna shift to this guy, and I don't know whether it will be now or late March. It will probably be after his pro day when he goes to his pro day and goes through his workout, then all of a sudden, it'll be about a month from now, we'll start hearing: "Wow, would and could the Rams take with [the] No. 1 overall pick, Sam Bradford?"

And I believe ultimately when all is said and done that the Rams' #1 pick on April 22nd two months from now, will be Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford. And I am willing to take all bets on that.

SB Nation's Bucs site, Buc 'Em, has more transcribed from the interview.

What does this mean for the Chiefs?

Like I've been saying, I feel that we want one of the quarterbacks (Bradford, Jimmy Clausen) to be available in order to have options of trading down. It's always better to have options.

If the Rams are indeed leaning towards Bradford, then that means the next quarterback-needy team is the Redskinswho are also in dire need of a left tackle.

Can you smell that? We're definitely in the rumor mill season.
