BSMW SUMMARY (as of 4/6/07)

Bradley doesn’t much register on our mock mash up, which may mean he’s a third rounder at the earliest. It sounds like he can do a little bit of everything. Has played rush end, and both outside and inside linebacker. The profilers say he has the size and strength to hold up against the run, yet is athletic enough to drop back in coverage. Can be a factor as a blitzer or an edge rusher. Has the coveted ‘good motor’ and could be a special teams gunner. Smart player with solid character and work ethic. Like a lot of big guys, he’s not flexible, agile or athletic enough for the profilers. More troubling is a history of knee woes in both high school and college. He missed more than half the 05 season with an ACL tear, though he rebounded pain-free in 06. One profile even suggested he was quicker after the surgery than before. The Patriots met with Bradley at the Senior Bowl, and again at a private workout in March. Hey, the guy was a versatile, consistent producer and three year starter, and he could perhaps fill a few different roles for New England. If he checks out medically, he could be around when (if) the Pats pick at 91.
