Oklahoma Sooners

Latest NFL.com Mock Draft Has Three Sooners In First Round

M. Hofeld


NFL.com’s Charles Davis has released his newest mock draft and he has three former Oklahoma players going in the first twenty-three picks.

Davis is buying into the Kyler Murray hype and has the Heisman winner as the top overall pick, but he also has Marquise Brown filling the gap left by his cousin in the Steel City and Cody Ford heading to Houston.

Pick #1

Kyler Murray – QB

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS) 

He won the NFL Scouting Combine when he measured 5-foot-10 1/8 (we’ve come a LONG way in the NFL from being dismissive of undersized QBs) — and his arm, accuracy, touch, and all-around playmaking ability cannot be passed up by the Cardinals.


Pick #20

Marquise Brown – WR

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior 

Amidst all the hand wringing after the loss of All-Pro WR Antonio Brown, the man they call “Hollywood” — who happens to be Antonio’s cousin — steps into the breach, and provides instant big-play ability. He wasn’t able to work out at the combine or Oklahoma’s pro day due to a Lisfranc (foot) injury, but he’s expected to be ready for training camp.


Pick #23

Cody Ford – OT

School: Oklahoma | Year: Junior (RS) 

It’s time to invest in the offensive line to help keep Deshaun Watson, who was sacked a league-high 62 times last season, upright.
