Re-drafting the 2010 NFL Draft

Re-drafting the 2010 NFL Draft

One of the most fun thing’s I’ve gotten to do as a writer at Baltimore Beatdown is put together mock drafts, where I predict what I think NFL team’s will do in the draft. This time, however, I’m changing it up. Now, I’m going back in time to the 2010 NFL Draft, and giving every team do over with their first round pick with knowledge of how each player’s career will pan out through the 2016 season. Let’s see how the NFL landscape changes when hindsight comes into play. St. Louis Rams Original Pick: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma Re-draft Pick: Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma In his...

Lions' Matthew Stafford has the same Bovada MVP odds as Sam Bradford

Lions' Matthew Stafford has the same Bovada MVP odds as Sam Bradford

The Lions quarterback was firmly in the MVP discussion amid the team's 8-4 start a year ago. Then a finger injury helped derail both.

Vikings practice observations: Laquon Treadwell's leaping grab, backup tackles shuffle

The Vikings closed out the spring by concluding the three-day mandatory minicamp with Thursday’s practice. An alumni barbecue afterward had many former players at Winter Park ranging from recently retired linebacker Chad Greenway to Hall of Fame defensive tackle John Randle. On the field, the offense pushed back Thursday after the defense had taken control much of the spring. Second-year receiver Laquon Treadwell concluded one red-zone session with a leaping grab of a Sam Bradford pass over Trae Waynes for a touchdown in the corner of the end zone. It’s a good sign for Treadwell, who was...

Vikings practice observations: Sam Bradford returns, continues Stefon Diggs connection

The Vikings opened a three-day mandatory minicamp Tuesday, a bow on the offseason before a five-week break prior to training camp. Below are some observations from the practice open to reporters: Quarterback Sam Bradford was not limited as he jumped back into the mix and led the starting offense. Bradford was limited last week with what head coach Mike Zimmer described as “muscle tightness.” The quarterback, an avid golfer, also did not compete in the Vikings charity golf tournament last week. The small time away didn’t hurt as Bradford returned and continued his deep connection with...

Sam Bradford has taken 'more of an ownership role' with Vikings' offense

Sam Bradford has taken 'more of an ownership role' with Vikings' offense

Five things to watch as Vikings wrap offseason with minicamp

The Vikings put a bow on the 2017 offseason this week with a three-day mandatory minicamp running from Tuesday through Thursday. There are still no pads worn and no contact, including live blocking and bump-and-run coverage, during the three practices. And while they’re still seven weeks away from suiting up at training camp, there are impressions to be left by rookies, veterans and coaches alike. A quarterback carousel began last week when Sam Bradford was held back during one practice open to reporters while dealing with “muscle tightness,” according to head coach Mike Zimmer, who...

Aaron Rodgers vs. Sam Bradford: Why Aaron is Aaron and Sam is Sam

Aaron Rodgers vs. Sam Bradford: Why Aaron is Aaron and Sam is Sam

Although the two QBs have some similar overall stats, a deep dive into the numbers illuminate why Rodgers is a two-time MVP and Bradford is on his third NFL team. This is a story about two very different quarterbacks, two different offenses, and about where that difference lies. It’s a mystery about 105 points. In 2016 the Packers scored 432 points while the Vikings scored 327. That’s an enormous difference both in real terms and in raw terms, as the Packers and Vikings ran almost the same number of offensive drives (176 and 174 respectively). You probably don’t think it’s that...

Sam Bradford: Even Better This Season? A Super Comparison

Sam Bradford: Even Better This Season? A Super Comparison

Sam Bradford had his best year statistically last season. He had his highest QB rating, highest adjusted net yards per attempt, most passing yards, lowest interception rate, best QBR, and led the league in completion percentage at 71.6%. But he didn’t get much respect. Most commentators poo-poo his completion percentage- he dinks and dunks all the time- and all but ignore his other stats: 2nd lowest interception rate in the league Highest PFF accuracy % in the league 6th best QB rating Bradford managed all of this: behind probably the worst pass blocking offensive line in the...
