It's an interesting argument and one that Bradford dealt with leading up to the draft.
How much of it is 'locking on' to his WR and how much of it is him having his first read open? I mean hell, the kid completed 70% of his passes and is going to be the guy throwing passes to 2 guys that will be drafted in the first 2 rounds.
It's clear that he wasn't getting passes knocked down every time he let them go.
So sure, oftentimes he threw to his first read - because his first read was there to throw to. Should he have gone onto #2 when #1 was open? And you can try to argue that he was forcing balls into the #1 read if you want but that means 1 of 2 things A) You're wrong - at a 72% completion clip, he very likely had open guys or B) You're right...and he's incredibly
accurate at squeezing balls into tight spaces to that #1 read.
There's not really room for anything else when the guy had a the completion rate that he had. Either his guy was open, in which case throwing to the #1 read is both expected and desired, or he's capable of hitting a flea off a dogs ass and was squeezing passes into covered #1 reads at a 70% rate.
