Bradford unlikely to slip by Washington (according to Adam Schefter)
Monday, November 2, 2009 | Print Entry
Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford could slip some in the April NFL draft, but it is unlikely he would slip past the Washington Redskins' first-round pick.
The Redskins' team doctor is Dr. James Andrews, who performed Bradford's shoulder surgery this past week. If any team is going to have extra insight as to how well Bradford's subsequent rehab is going, it is the Redskins. Of course, any team can get any information it wants about Bradford's shoulder, but it is an interesting connection that Andrews works for the Redskins.
In the weeks before the 2008 NFL draft, Oregon running back Jonathan Stewart underwent foot surgery with Dr. Robert Anderson, who also happened to be the Carolina Panthers' team doctor. Then, when the draft came, Stewart slid some but not past the Panthers' 11th overall pick.
This is not to suggest that Bradford is destined to land in Washington, but it's hard to imagine him getting past the Redskins' slot, wherever it is.
