Quarterback Sam Bradford, the No. 1 overall selection in April's NFL draft, spent most of his time with the Rams second and third units, although he did take some snaps with the first team. It was a crash course for the 2008 Heisman Trophy winner, as the Rams ventured substantially deeper into the playbook than they did last spring.
Still, Bradford said he never felt overwhelmed.
"I feel good with everything we have in right now," he said. "Obviously, having 13 or 14 practices and the minicamps, I've gotten a lot of reps, I've gotten a lot of experience with the plays."
Bradford said he'd continued to improve in "the little things: using different cadences, coming out of the huddle, identifying the (middle linebacker), reading coverages ... just everything. As soon as those things can become second nature, the easier it's going to be to really start getting into everything else."
"It'll be nice to just slow things down a little bit, be able to look at film in a little more detail, get in the playbook, and just talk through some things," he said. "The more I study, the more comfortable I'll become."
