Better Know A Draft Pick: Sam Bradford

04.07.10 8 years ago 24 Comments

Name: Sam Bradford
College: Oklahoma, the program that has given us the likes of Josh Heupel, Nate Hybl, and Jason White. That’s good pedigree!

Strength: Hitting wide open receivers.
Weakness: AC joint.

Ethnicity: Bradford is 1/16th Cherokee and is a citizen of the Cherokee Nation. He is the great great granddaughter of Susie Walkingstick, an implement Bradford will become familiar with after enduring 70 sacks as a rookie.
Suggested Cherokee Name: Winces In Pain

Story ESPN Will Shove Down Your Throat: He’s an underdog! He was just a three star recruit coming out of high school, and he was routinely ranked behind the likes of Juice Williams and Pat Devlin. To this day he still reads the story of David and Goliath prior to games. It’s a great way to psyche yourself up for a 64-0 win over a bewildered Idaho State team. Not so big now, are you, Goliaths of Pocatello?

Who Wants Him: The Redskins, but I’m guessing the feeling isn’t mutual.
Who Will Take Him: The Rams.

Is His Girlfriend “Facebookable“: Apparently so.

Immediate Impact: Starts Week 1, goes on IR by Week 12.
Down the Road: Overcomes multiple injuries to win the distinction as the league’s best golfing quarterback over future Redskins quarterback Tony Romo.
