In his latest NFL Training Camp blog entry, ESPN's John Clayton came away with a number of good impressions from the St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford, suggesting the third-year quarterback might be able to recapture his "elite quarterback" rookie upside:
Bradford looks great. He has lifted weights in the offseason and is bigger and stronger. He finished last season at 216 pounds. Now, he's 225 and throwing with authority. Schottenheimer is adding more motion to the offense with his receivers to confuse defenses. A smarter offensive scheme should mean better quarterback play for the Rams.
In his first two years, Bradford has started 26 games and compiled 5676 passing yards with 24 touchdowns for just a 74.2 quarterback rating.
