With the first pick in the 2010 BBV Community Mock Draft, the Rams select ...

Sam Bradford, quarterback, Oklahoma.

Selecting for the Rams, 'Soldier_' writes:

It's time St. Louis take their franchise quarterback. They have passed on three different franchise QBs in the latest four drafts. First on Jay Cutler in 2006, then on Matt Ryan in 2008 and last year they passed on Mark Sanchez.

Steve Spagnuolo is a defensive mind. But we all watched closely how Spagnuolo won a Super Bowl with a group effort on defense. He created dominant forces all over the place with his pressure schemes.

Eventually he can do the same in St Louis because there is depth and value available in the later rounds of this year's draft.

There isn't however a franchise QB available in those rounds.

I know there are questions about Bradford's health and his durability. But weren't the same concerns spoken about Adrian Peterson when he came out?

We all know how that move played out.

St Louis has to pull the trigger on a franchise QB if they want to start winning soon.

My take: This is a logical choice for the Rams, and probably the likely one. I also believe it is the wrong one. As 'Soldier_' points out the Rams probably should have taken a first-round quarterback in one of the recent drafts. They need one, yes, but I am afraid hitching their fortunes to Bradford's very fragile star will end up shattering Spagnuolo's tenure in St. Louis. This pick just compounds the fact that they made a mistake in recent seasons.
