Where does Sam Bradford rank among NFL quarterbacks?


Why not talk about the St. Louis Rams' franchise player some more? More Bradford, more fun, I always say.

It's been a while since we've discussed Sam Bradford. I believe the last time he was mentioned on this site, there was a big argument about his contract and how his play doesn't warrant that kind of money. Well I know we can't leave his contract out of the equation, but I thought it would be interesting to talk about his rating from Matt Miller over at Bleacher Report.

Miller, ranked 65 quarterbacks and he placed Sam Bradford at 21, he was ranked 19 last season for those wondering. Although many won't agree with his ranking, it's hard to argue with some of his points in his scouting report on Sam Bradford. The whole scouting report is right here, but I'll quote a couple of things.



Sam Bradford (6'4", 224 pounds, three seasons) is known for his accuracy, and it showed in 2012 with on-point passing and timing. While his completion percentage was hurt by 30 dropped passes, it was easy to see an improvement in ball placement, timing and touch this year.

Decision Making


Can fall into a rut of being too conservative with the ball and looking for the checkdown or hot route over a big-play opportunity. Must learn to trust his line, his receivers and his arm.



Bradford made big improvements in 2012, showing off the accuracy that made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 draft. While he still needs to work on pushing the ball upfield and taking more calculated risks, Bradford’s stock is on the rise.

It's hard to argue with those points. 78/100, really isn't bad, he did play above average this season, and it's good that someone takes notice of it rather than just bashing Bradford.

I don't agree with his trusting the offensive line and wide receivers line in the reports though. Sorry, it's just hard to trust Barry Richardson, and all the other moving parts that he's had on his offensive line, and don't let me get started on the wide receivers.

But anyway, do you agree with Miller's assessment of Sam Bradford?
