Rams Minicamp 2012: Is Sam Bradford A Franchise Quarterback?

Entering the 2012 season, the St. Louis Rams don't have especially huge expectations. Most of the hope lies on the shoulders of quarterback Sam Bradford, though, so it's understandable that all eyes will be on the third-year quarterback during minicamps this summer.

As Ryan Van Bibber writes for SB Nation, the biggest question surrounding St. Louis this year regards what exactly the team has in its QB:

Do the Rams have their franchise quarterback in Sam Bradford or not? Bradford brought a bundle of talent to the NFL, highlighted by his guided missile accuracy. He dinked and dunked his way to a Rookie of the Year Award in 2010 before struggling to stay healthy and upright in his second year. The sooner the Rams get his career on track, the sooner the team can compete again.

The first overall pick in the 2010 draft, Bradford has the tools for a breakout but he hasn't experienced it yet. Given how much the Rams have committed to the young quarterback, his development this year will be absolutely integral to the team's long-term success.
