    Who were the best Oklahoma Sooner draft picks? Which players make the all-time OU NFL draft team?


    Which Oklahoma Sooners turned out to be the best NFL draft picks? Who were the best draft picks for each position?

    Considering that Oklahoma has one of the greatest college football programs of all-time, you’d think this would be easy – but it’s not.

    To start, this is an all-time draft team of players who did things for the NFL teams that drafted them – if a pick went on to kill it for someone else, the pick didn’t work.

    Shockingly, there are almost no linebackers to choose from, and the wide receiver pickings are slim. Part of the offensive problem was the wishbone offense the Sooners ran for a long, long time – there weren’t players for the passing game – but even the Bob Stoops era didn’t crank up the parts for the passing game like you’d think it would.

    But linebackers? Oklahoma?

    Offensive linemen weren’t a problem, and running backs were relatively easy, but it was a strain to fill out the other positions, especially quarterback – Troy Aikman was drafted as a UCLA Bruin.
