Rams Starting Contract Talks With Bradford

All the speculation over the last few weeks had us thinking this may happen. The Rams have begun preliminary talks with Sam Bradford to be the first pick of the draft.
“All the people who are in the discussion (for No. 1 overall), we’ve talked to their agents,” Demoff said. “We’re really just comparing notes. Also, it may take some time, so we figured we’d get a head start.”
Whatever. Most people think it’s a foregone conclusion that Bradford will be the guy, and with a draft deeper in defensive tackles than in quarterbacks, that would make the most sense. That would guarantee the Bucs the opportunity to grab whichever DT the Lions don’t take. I know it has become fashionable to say that the Lions will take OT Russell Okung (Oklahoma) and leave the Bucs with their choice at #3, but I still see Jim Schwartz wanting his disruptor up front on the defense.
I have to say, I’d be a little disappointed if the Bucs took Gerald McCoy. I wouldn’t throw the remote through the TV or anything; I’m sure he’d improve the defensive line considerably. I just don’t like him as well as Suh and have this feeling that he’s not worth the #3 slot. But if he’s the guy who’s left when it’s the Bucs’ turn to pick, they’ll take him without hesitation.
