Several NFL teams would draft Sam Bradford

Sam Bradford is expected to be drafted No. 1 overall by St. Louis. But what if the Rams decide to go with one of the two highly touted defensive tackles (Ndamukong Suh or Gerald McCoy)?

No. 2 Detroit (Matthew Stafford) and No. 3 Tampa Bay (Josh Freeman) selected quarterbacks in the first round last season. Washington (No. 4) probably would select Bradford if he was available. If the Redskins also passed, Bradford won’t last past Seattle (No. 6) or Cleveland (No. 7).

St. Louis
Why Rams take Bradford: It will be shocking if the Rams don’t select the 2008 Heisman Trophy winner. Rams fans want Bradford, and Marc Bulger, who turns 33 next week, has thrown more interceptions than touchdowns each of the past three seasons.

Why Rams don’t take Bradford: St. Louis might feel taking a franchise defensive tackle like Suh or McCoy is safer than taking a franchise quarterback coming off a shoulder injury.

Washington
Why Redskins take Bradford: New coach Mike Shanahan probably would salivate if Bradford dropped to No. 4 instead of trying to figure out if Jason Campbell or former Bears starter Rex Grossman can win consistently.
