Draft Getting Thin at the Top

by: Michael Steffes

Well, I guess it is a good thing the new Seahawks coaching staff appears so committed to Matt Hasselbeck. The number of draftable franchise quarterbacks has just shrunk form two to one.

ESPN is reporting that Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford is going to stay in school.

This is a good decision for Bradford, who is said to have a slender frame. He can now get his body physically ready for the Sunday afternoon league. However, it is a curious choice as well, as he will be losing almost his entire line and receiving corps. He will be hard pressed to improve on what appeared to be top 5 draft status without the surrounding cast he had this year. Of course, he could also make NFL GMs a little more confident in their selection of him by doing it again with a new cast as well. [thanks to Misfit74 for the link] END
