NORMAN — Kent Bradford, the father of Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, said his son is taking the time to make sure his decision about whether to stay in school or declare for the NFL Draft is the right one. "I think he kind of knows what he would like," Kent told The Oklahoman in a phone interview Tuesday. "He's just trying to be sure that his choice is the actual proper choice." Kent said he didn’t know when his son would make an announcement, but that it would probably go through the university. “When he feels it’s right,” Kent said, “he’ll let the right people know.” Sam, who Kent said received a first-round projection from the NFL Draft Advisory Committee, is projected by most draft analysts to be one of the top-two quarterbacks taken in the draft if he comes out. The Sooners are still waiting on the decisions of junior tight end Jermaine Gresham and junior offensive tackle Trent Williams, who have both said they're considering leaving early for the NFL. Gresham received a first-round projection from the Advisory Committee; Williams, a second-round. The trio has until midnight Thursday to declare for the draft. Players who declare have 72 hours after the deadline to change their minds, assuming they haven’t hired an agent. Tuesday was a busy day for Bradford family. Tuesday morning, Sam was honored at a ceremony in the morning by Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett, who declared Jan. 13 “Sam Bradford Day.” Sam was spotted wearing the cast again on his injured left thumb, after he wore just a splint preparing for and during the BCS National Championship. But Kent said the plan was always for Sam to wear the cast again for about a month after the title game as he recovers from torn ligaments.
