So if you take Bradford, remove the shoulder injury, increase his mobility and then give him the upside that if he fixes his footwork, his arm strength will be about 10% better, I'd say you're more than justified in taking the risk.

If this exact draft class were around in 2011, we'd never have the kind of conversations we're having right now. Luck/RGIII dicked this all up.

Geno Smith is easily the equal of many QBs that came before him and went #1 overall. He's a completely justifiable, sensible pick in a position of extreme need.

So naturally we'll take the 2nd best tackle prospect in the draft or a !@#$ing guard.
Yep to all of this.

Plus, Bradford walked into a team lead by a defensive minded HC and an OC that was basically on his own in Shurmur.

Having an offensive guy like Reid makes the selection even more desirable than the situation Bradford walked into.
