That's funny, because am I going to trust the guy's health in drills or in a game...hmmmm. He played what, 4 games last year? and had 2 injuries to his throwing shoulder...yeah, he'll be just fine....
I guess I would ask this question. Would anyone even be asking this question if Bradford hadn't gotten hurt? Yes, like kidd points out, he stands back in the shotgun all day, he was incredibly scrawny, and didn't get hit much. He doesn't strike me as the greatest leader, thus I don't understand all the hype.
Bradford really only had one injury, he just came back to soon and reinjured the shoulder. It was a part of OU trying to get him back for Texas and the rest of the Big 12.
And guys heal. You don't have to play in a game to get healthy, in fact the opposite is true, you get healthy by not playing in a game.
As to the mental aspects, pretty much everyone says he has every bit the leadership and mental aspects to be successful in the league. No one questions that side, all the questions are related to his health, not his physical or mental skills.
