ESPN's Mortenson said he polled some GMs around the NFL about this and the reaction was split. Half felt he was still a Top-10 QB. They feel that Locker is most likely moving into position to being the 1st QB taken.
This potentially could be great for us. I think Bradford is the best QB in his class and we could be in position to draft him with Carolina's pick. With Hill, it wouldn't matter who we draft at QB. They wouldn't be expected to contribute for a couple years, so Bradford's shoulder injury shouldn't be a concern for us.
I wouldn't draft him. He is looking like Alex Smith to me. Spread QB, shoulder injury,need to learn to take drops on a regular basis. I wouldn't draft him in the first at all. He may elect to take a medical redshirt this year and play in college next year to increase his stock.
Bradford is as accurate as P. Manning, Smith never was that accurate. Locker does the one thing that NFL caliber QBs must do: he throws to the spot BEFORE the reciever gets open. That is why teams will draft him in the top ten, in addition to his strong arm and pocket presence. Locker is as good a prospect as Stafford was last year, just with less hoopla. If he was at USC with all those weapons the guy would win the Heisman running away.
I'm sorry I didn't make myself clear when I posted last. When I said Bradford looked like Alex I meant as far as becoming an NFL QB he has the same challenges to overcome. I do agree Bradford is more accurate than Smith but he has a small frame like Smith coming out and now must deal with a shoulder injury like smith and he still has to take drops and learn to operate from under center like Smith.
There are alot of unknowns with Bradford and for me its too much unknowns to take a chance on in the first round this year.I stick to my statement of Locker, McCoy or no QB in first round.
