ESPN is reporting that Sam Bradford will consider declaring for the NFL draft next year.
Bradford is a red shirt sophomore but his stock may never be higher. Having led the Sooners to a BCS Championship date with Florida, he scored a nation high 48 touchdowns along the way. He is a strong contender for the Heisman Trophy.
Bradford's decision will likely be based on the information he receives from a selection of coaches, scouts and general managers. If he is likely to be selected in the top five he will have to seriously consider heading for the pro's.
This could affect Seattle even if they aren't in the market for a quarter back. With the Seahawks drafting in the top 10 of the 2009 draft, the more quality underclassmen who declare the better.
