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. He didn't have the season many thought he would, but Patrick showed what he's capable of in a 200-plus yard outing against Oklahoma State. Patrick, though not big, runs with power.
D.J. WolfePosition: Safety Stats: 87 tackles, 4 INTs Ht./Wt.: 5-11, 207 Combine/pro day snapshot: 4.57 in 40, 35.5-inch vertical Projection: Fifth round Upside: Wolfe is a savvy player and seems to find himself in the right place at the right time. He isn't an exceptional athlete and doesn't smash opposing ball-carriers at the line of scrimmage, but his instincts will make him an attractive second-day selection.
Joe Jon FinleyPosition: Tight end Stats: 23 catches, 290 yards, four TDs Ht./Wt.: 6-6, 258 Combine/pro day snapshot: 4.86 in 40; 31-inch vertical Projection: Sixth round Upside: Finley is a big, muscular athlete who can both run block and go out on passing routes. He won't be a star in the NFL, but he could be a solid second-team tight end.
Marcus WalkerPosition: Cornerback Stats: 47 tackles Ht./Wt.: 5-11, 191 Combine/pro day snapshot: 4.55 in 40; 37-inch vertical Projection: Seventh round Upside: Walker has enough speed to run with opposing wide receivers, but his lack of top speed or size could keep him from getting drafted. Walker is a good tackler, though, and that may earn him a spot on a special teams unit.
Garrett HartleyPosition: Kicker Stats: 13 of 15 field goals, 53 long Ht./Wt.: 5-9, 199 Combine/pro day snapshot: 11 reps on bench press (225 pounds) Projection: Seventh round Upside: Hartley has the power and accuracy to become someone's starting field goal kicker in time, but he needs to prove his extra-point misses last season were a fluke and improve on kickoffs.
Lewis BakerPosition: Outside linebacker Stats: 91 tackles Ht./Wt.: 6-2, 210 Combine/pro day snapshot: 4.70 in 40; 33-inch vertical Projection: Free agent Upside: Baker likely won't be drafted, but he could make an NFL roster. Baker is athletic and physical for his size and has a motor that could earn him a spot on special teams.
Darien WilliamsPosition: Safety Stats: 22 tackles Ht./Wt.: 5-11, 207 Combine/pro day snapshot: 4.71 in 40; 35-inch vertical Projection: Free agent Upside: Williams was a starter for the Sooners before injuries plagued him his senior season and kept him on the sidelines. If he can regain some of that form from his junior year, he might have a chance at making a roster. By Jake Trotter
