Will Rams' QB Bradford Be Boom Or Bust?

There is no blueprint for what the St. Louis Rams should do with No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford, the quarterback from the University of Oklahoma that they drafted to be the new face of the franchise.

Since Bradford was born on Nov. 8, 1987, there have been 13 quarterbacks selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft, including Bradford.

The other names on that list -- Troy Aikman (1989), Jeff George (1990), Drew Bledsoe (1993), Peyton Manning (1998), Tim Couch (1999), Michael Vick (2001), David Carr (2002), Carson Palmer (2003), Eli Manning (2004), Alex Smith (2005), JaMarcus Russell (2007) and Matthew Stafford (2009) -- are some of the biggest stars of the NFL and also some of the biggest busts in the history of the league.
