NORMAN, OK -- Rumors are flying that OU quarterback Sam Bradford may be looking at a jump to the NFL.
The web site National Football Post is reporting Sam Bradford will declare for the NFL draft.
NEWS 9 Sports Director Dean Blevins has the following thoughts:
The Sam Bradford story is a major story. The fact no major news outlet is reporting that he is leaving OU early is suspicious. However, after vacillating on the matter for some time, Blevins believes Bradford played his final game as a Sooner at Thursday night's BCS Championship game.
Three NFL veterans have told Blevins that Bradford would not be able to turn down the NFL money. They said personnel people with two clubs told them Bradford is definitely the number one quarterback prospect and would be a very high first-round pick.
Two of the three said their management told them, the Detroit Lions would select Bradford with their first overall pick.
