ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Rams have picked Oklahoma
quarterback Sam Bradford with the No. 1 selection in the NFL draft.
The Rams made the choice Thursday night, hoping Bradford can
help revive a franchise that has slid a long way from its days as
"The Greatest Show on Turf." St. Louis was 1-15 a year ago and
has a sorry 6-42 record the past three years.
Bradford was the 2008 Heisman Trophy winner, and he convinced
the Rams that he has recovered from shoulder surgery last October.
Releasing Marc Bulger earlier this month all but cinched the
A.J. Feeley, who signed a free agent deal in the offseason, has
15 career starts in 10 seasons. Rookie Keith Null threw three
touchdown passes with nine interceptions last season. Kyle Boller
signed with the Raiders and Mike Reilly, a late-season pickup, has
no NFL experience.
