Rams Starting Contract Talks With Bradford

Bradford checks to see if the Heisman is anatomically correct.
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.

Don’t worry we’ll get Suh. Lions signed Kyle Vanden Bosch and traded for Corey Williams(starting caliber DE and DT) Their best assets are Stafford and Calvin Johnson so they need to help that out. If they take Okung, their offense could very well be set. Suh in the first, Damien Williams USC WR in 2nd, then best Dline available. Can’t wait. It sucks about Berry but I’ll take any help we can get.

Fuck it, with 2011 being a puff of smoke at this point and the fact the bucs are building through the draft, why not say fuck and halfway through the 1st trade back into the first. fuck it let it all go to hell.

look, the best scenario for the bucs its a trade down, look, Suh and McCoy are not the only great DTs, if we can trade down and take a combo like (joe Haden or Eric Berry) and (Brian Price or Dan Williams)i would be pleased, and later its all about number five!!!time will tell

Looks like the Rams may be working on a deal to get McNabb. Seems unlikely they’d take Bradford if they get McNabb.
