Irrelevent, seeing as how he would have been the easy number one the year before. He wasn't a late riser.


Honestly, I doubt the Lions would've picked Bradford over Stafford #1.


I agree. Bradford has a strong arm and put up the nice numbers, but Stafford, at that time, had more starting experience, played in the SEC (say what you will, NFL teams seem to value that), played in a pro style offense (not to say Bradford didnt. As was mentioned earlier, he played in an offense like the one in Indy), and had better physical tools.

My biggest beef with Bradford was his upside. At least, his upside compared to other top 5 QBs. I wasnt sure he could be elite, and Im still not sure he can be elite. He looked great his rookie year, and Ill give him a pass, but Im not sure he will ever surpass QBs like Stafford (who still has a ways to go before I call him elite), Big Ben, Eli, Brees, ect.

That said, the Rams made the correct decision drafting him #1. I didnt say that at the time of the draft, but I see it as the right pick now. He may not have been as good as other top QBs to me, but he was still a very good prospect and the Rams had a huge hole at QB. No way they could pass on Bradford, even though an elite DT prospect was available.

Stafford easily for me. Physically, he has no flaws. Big, athletic, cannon for an arm and is a gamer.

Couldn't disagree with this more; what I wouldn't give to have Bradford on the Redskins under Shanahan's tutelage. I would have him in top 5 overall in terms of QBs that have come out since 2000.

Bradford was expected to be number 1 the year Stafford came out but then he returned, and then got injured the following season, so that was his only concern. I think after he measured out to 6'5" and 235lbs he shot back to the consensus number 1 and was a big reason as to why so many analysts were saying the 2010 draft class was the most talented since 83.

How quickly we forget.

Where are people getting this? Even the guy driving the Bradford over Stafford hype train (Todd McShay) admitted that the front office people he talked to almost universally disagreed with him. Bradford didn't even decide to return until after Stafford declared and after he got back his evaluation from the NFL draft advisory committee. If people had actually been telling him he was expected to go #1 over Stafford, do you actually think he would have returned to school?

No, he wasn't. Don't make up stuff.

Same goes with Bradford but it was credited to his system and weak arm (which aren't negatives to me, because there have been several good qb's coming out of the spread now, and his arm isn't really bad).

RGIII has me super excited and am a big fan of his, but I don't know if I'd draft him. Too much of a high risk - high reward player.

That's because a lot of people on here do most of their scouting by looking at box scores. People were questioning his accuracy because of his completion percentage, but if you actually watched the games his completion percentage was low because of the throws he was being asked to make.


Plus, didnt he have 4 freshmen on his starting line? He knew how to get rid of the ball when he had to.


I remember he had two sophomores and three freshmen (two true and one was the LT). Same thing his sophomore yr. He had one senior and four freshmen. The whole time he was at Georgia his O-line was in shambles.

1. Stafford
(big gap)
2. RGIII
3. Bradford

No he wouldn't have, he would have been the 4th QB drafted had he come out. He didn't stand even close in talent to the other 3, he just happened to come out in a very weak QB class.


You're wrong. He would have been picked before both Sanchez and Freeman. He probably would have went #2 to the Rams.

1: RG3
2: Stafford
3: Bradford


RG3's athleticism alone puts him above the other two. Stafford had a cannon at Georgia and played against top notch defenses. Bradford to me is still suspect. I never thought he showed that 'it' factor you want in a QB. Also came from a high scoring spread offense with tons of talent around him. Give me RG3 any day.
