Quarterback — Sam Bradford (25)

Backups — Austin Davis (24); Kellen Clemens (30)

If your’e a bit of a risk taker, this is the year to go all in with Sam Bradford. With Steven Jackson out of the picture, I think we’ll see the Rams throw the ball a lot more, and I think there is going to be a much better pacing to their offensive attack than in years past.

Bradford is coming off the best season of his career, throwing for 3,702 yards, 21 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions. I think in 2013, he will see an increase in all those numbers, because I think his pass attempts are going to go up. Bradford is a potential injury risk, but if you want to take a gamble on him as your backup QB and see what he can do, I don’t think it would be a bad idea at all. When you look at what he has for targets this year, I think it’s safe to say he’s got the best group of WRs/TEs that he has had since he’s been in St. Louis. Not to mention, the addition of Jake Long at left tackle gives Bradford a Pro Bowl caliber lineman up front to protect his blind side.

Bradford is just 25 years old still entering his fourth year in the NFL, and I think this could be a real breakout season for him. The Rams’ offense is going to look a lot different in 2013, largely thanks to the potential emergence of #8.
