College football is officially back in action next Thursday. Next weekend will be our first glimpse at the University of Oklahoma, who is currently ranked No. 1 in both preseason polls.
The stakes are high for OU because of the plethora of talent the team has this season. The Sooners should have at least two guys coming off the board in the first round come draft day, but where does everyone else rank?
In 2010, the Sooners had four first round (and seven total) draft picks. Last season, DeMarco Murray was taken in the third round, Quinton Carter was taken in the fourth round and Jonathan Nelson and Jeremy Beal were both taken in the seventh round.
Needless to say, there was a noticeable difference between the two years.
This season looks to be more reminiscent of 2010, and if some guys play up to their potential, OU could have as many as 12 guys waiting to be drafted.
