    4th 2011 Oklahoma Sooners Top Prospects for 2012 and Beyond
    AUTHOR: Sayre Bedinger | IN: 2012 NFL Draft | COMMENTS: None Yet |
    The Oklahoma Sooners are traditionally one of the top schools in terms of producing NFL talent. This year, they put out two of their top defenders who were both drafted by the Denver Broncos–safety Quinton Carter and defensive end Jeremy Beal. The Sooners did not lose a ton of talent from their 2010 team, which is a big reason why everyone is predicting them to be the best team in all of college football next year.

    Not only is Oklahoma a near lock for a BCS title appearance, they will also be putting out some of the top talent in the 2012 NFL Draft.

    28 Travis Lewis (Senior), LB, 6’2″ 233
    Lewis could be the best WILL linebacker prospect in the entire draft. He has been a projected first round pick since 2010, and likely will be a first round pick in 2012. He combines phenomenal speed to go along with his ideal size for the position. His tackles for loss have gone down every year, but he has still been very productive with 362 tackles, 26.5 for loss, 8 interceptions, and 10 passes broken up. He is a complete prospect who will likely only benefit from another year of seasoning. Started all 41 games he has played in over three year span. Has been named All-Big 12 three years in a row, and in 2008 was the Big 12 defensive newcomer of the year as a freshman. Broke Brian Bosworth’s freshman tackles record with 144. All Big 12 Academic performer who will break the all-time record at Oklahoma of interceptions by a linebacker if he picks off just one pass in 2011. Six career sacks and likely will be a plug-and-play in the NFL. Immediate starter at WILL in a 4-3 defensive scheme.
