ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Slowly but surely, Sam Bradford is getting acclimated to life in the NFL.
The No. 1 overall pick of the April draft joined veterans on Thursday at the first day of the St. Louis Rams' minicamp. The former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from Oklahoma says the more reps he gets, the more comfortable he feels.
Coach Steve Spagnuolo says Bradford is doing a good job of absorbing all of the information thrown at him. Bradford says he knows there is still a lot to learn.
It isn't yet known if Bradford will immediately move into the starter role for St. Louis. The Rams are coming off a league-worst 1-15 season. Last year's starting quarterback, Marc Bulger, was released. Bradford is competing with A.J. Feeley for the starting job.
