Bradford a clear No. 1 in 2010
OU’s Sam Bradford would have jostled with Matthew Stafford and Mark Sanchez for quarterback supremacy in the 2009 NFL Draft, had Slingin’ Sammy decided to go pro this year.
You never know, but it certainly appears likely Bradford will be atop all QB draft boards in 2010, and here’s what’s wild. Most of the other top candidates are very familiar to Sooner fans.
I scanned a few 2010 prospect lists, and while the guys who make up those lists have no idea how quarterbacks rank right now, much less a year from now, they at least identify the guys who will be on radars.
Bradford is No. 1, of course, but here are some of the guys listed right behind Bradford: Texas’ Colt McCoy; Ole Miss’ Jevan Snead, who transferred from Texas after McCoy won the QB job; Florida’s Tim Tebow; Notre Dame’s Jimmy Clausen; and OSU’s Zac Robinson. All are in the top eight of quarterbacks listed on the draft lists I found.
The only possibly high picks listed from off the Oklahoma radar are a couple of Mid-American Conference quarterbacks: Central Michigan’s Dan LeFevour and Western Michigan’s Tim Hiller. The success of Ben Roethlisberger (Miami-Ohio) will give those MAC QBs a close look, and if you’re making me bet, I would say those are the only two who could keep Bradford from being the first quarterback taken.
