This weekend, Oklahoma could have three players selected in the first round, and as many as 10 players taken overall. Here's a breakdown of the former Sooners who have a shot of being drafted:
Malcolm KellyPosition: Wide receiver Stats: 49 catches, 821 yards, nine TDs Ht./Wt.: 6-4, 225 Combine/pro day snapshot: 4.68 in 40; 32-inch vertical Projection: First round Upside: Kelly arguably has the best hands of any receiver in the draft. He's also a big, physical presence who should complement teams stocked with smaller, shiftier receivers.
Curtis LoftonPosition: Inside linebacker Stats: 157 tackles, three INTs Ht./Wt.: 6-0, 238 Combine/pro day snapshot: 4.67 in 40; 32-inch vertical Projection: Second round Upside: Lofton has a knack for creating big turnovers and made a bunch of tackles in college. He runs well sideline-to-sideline, and when he gets there, he knows how to deliver the big hit.
Reggie SmithPosition: Safety/cornerback Stats: 78 tackles, 3 INTs Ht./Wt.: 6-1, 199 Combine/pro day snapshot: 4.61 in 40; 39.5-inch vertical Projection: Second round Upside: Smith has probably not yet tapped into his full potential, despite a good and productive college career that earned him first-team All-Big 12 honors last season. Smith also has the versatility to play either safety at corner, and he has game experience at both.
Allen PatrickPosition: Running back Stats: 1,039 yards, eight TDs Ht./Wt.: 6-1, 198 Combine/pro day snapshot: 4.55 in 40; 36-inch vertical Projection: Fifth round Upside: At one point last offseason, Patrick was considered one of the top running backs available in the draft.
