Sam Bradford is a very rich man, as the #1 overall pick in 2010, the last year of giant rookie contracts. However, he’s very poor in offensive supporting talent. The Rams’ offensive line allowed the most sacks in the league last year and the only reason Bradford wasn’t the most sacked quarterback in the league was because he wasn’t healthy enough to be around for all 16 starts. He also has very little receiving talent, so much so that the Rams could start two rookies, 2nd and 4th round, this season.
While the coaching staff has busy praising 2nd round rookie Brian Quick and all of his natural talent, Sam Bradford today praised their other rookie receiver, 4th rounder Chris Givens. Bradford called Givens a vertical, perimeter, deep threat that the team needs and someone that defenses will have to be aware of at all times.

QB Sam Bradford (St. Louis)
Tough to get behind Bradford as anything more than a QB2 because of his lack of offensive supporting cast. He could improve on the 3512 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions he had in 2010, but at the same time, I don’t expect them to pass 590 times again, like they did in 2010. And, of course, he might not last the season behind an offensive line...
