Are the Rams moving Sam Bradford up their draft board?

Here’s a little more insight for the discussion of whether or not the St. Louis Rams will be looking to draft a quarterback when Christmas in April arrives.

The issue of the Rams drafting a QB is inextricably linked to the discussion of no-so-consensus first overall pick Ndamukong Suh and the Detroit Lions, who pick behind the Rams at our usual number two spot. This latest information comes from a post centered on the emerging meme of whether or not Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy is a better DT than Suh. Blah, blah, blah…expect lots more of that as the weeks go by. Now, let’s get the grist of this post. From a post today at, the online outlet for a consortium of Michigan newspapers:

In talking to a couple of well-informed folks from St. Louis last week at the Super Bowl, two interesting points came up.

The first is one that I’ve been talking about for awhile — that Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, once he proves his injured right shoulder is OK — could move into that No. 1 spot. The Rams are desperate to replace Marc Bulger, who is not in the team’s long-term plans.
