NORMAN - Sam Bradford put on a show Monday morning at his workout in front of NFL coaches, general managers and scouts.

"I thought I showed everyone that my shoulder's what it was before I got hurt," Bradford said.

Former Cowboys vice president of player personnel Gil Brandt called the workout the best he's seen since Troy Aikman.

Bradford, looking bigger than he had during the season, completed all but one of his 50 throws. The one incompletion came on a drop early in the sequence.

Bradford threw a combination of short, intermediate and deep routes, showing no effects from the shoulder surgery that ended his 2009 season early.

"He's done a great job," Rams general manager Billy Devaney said. "He deserves a tremendous amount of credit.

"Now it's on to Texas and to Notre Dame."

The Rams have the No. 1 pick in next month's NFL Draft and are expected select either a quarterback or a defensive tackle. If the Rams go with a quarterback with their top pick, they will be picking between Bradford and Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen. If they select a defensive tackle with the No. 1 pick, they'll likely go after a quarterback with a later pick. That's where Texas' Colt McCoy could come into play.

Bradford is expected to work out privately for the Rams three days before the draft.

He called the pro day experience "nerve wracking" but credited the teammates he threw to for settling him down.

Bradford threw to Jermaine Gresham, Adron Tennell, Chris Brown, Brody Eldridge and the Buffalo Bills' Josh Reed.
