I would have loved to see Bradford stay healthy this year and see them against Bama in the championship game. Look at OU's losses last year without Bradford pretty much all season.

13-14 to ranked BYU after Bradford gets knocked out of the game early.

20-21 @ ranked and scorching hot Miami

13-16 vs. #2 Texas

3-10 @ Nebraska

13-41 @ TTU Don't really have an explanation for this one. They just got their asses beat.

However, if they had a healthy Bradford, Gresham, and Broyles all year that team would have been scary good. They had some other injuries along the way as well. Let's not act like they didn't win a national championship because they underachieved. They were just a great team that came across a ton of terrible luck last year.

Gresham was taken in the first also...that is 4 Sooners taken in the first round...

both Bradford and Gresham were injured the whole year though...

and yeah, this has to be a first for 3 players to be taken from the same school in the top 4 like that...

I agree it should be more attention...

Has this ever happened in the history of the draft? I don't remember any school ever producing three of the first four players chosen.

Doubtful. I looked back through to '90 and didn't see anything better than 3 of the first 9 picks that happened twice.

Biggest waste of talent in NCAA history.

Closest thing I can remember is when Courntey Brown and LaVar Arrington out of my school went 1-2 in the first round.

Why make a big deal out of it? Dont see why this should be news. You're better off lookin at the conference and counting up how many were drafted. Thats more relevant than harping over how many OU players were taken within the first 4 picks. 3 were, but there have been times were 2 players from the same school were taken within the first 4 picks as well. Not much news was made then. But when you look at 1 school or a conference? Then talk to me.

Sooners, Big 12 enjoy draft's first round

http://espn.go.com/blog/big12/post/_...oy-first-round

Thursday's first round was relatively free of surprises (apologies to Tyson Alualu and Jimmy Clausen) to Big 12 teams.

The first four picks came from the Big 12, three from Oklahoma, and the conference added five more through the rest of the first round.

"This was historic night, a statement for our program," Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said in a release. "Everyone associated with our program should be proud of what was accomplished in this draft. I am just overwhelmed and feel privileged to have had the opportunity to get to know these guys and coach them." Stoops also added a fourth first-rounder in Jermaine Gresham, who went to the Bengals at No. 21.

"To think that four guys who came in as members of the same recruiting class went in the first 21 picks is amazing."

The Sooners were the first team to have three of the first four picks since Notre Dame in 1946, which bodes well for the Sooners' future, even after losing its talent. The Fighting Irish won national titles in 1947 and 1949.

They also won in 1946 with their three draft picks, but the Sooners played most of 2009 without 2008 Heisman winner Sam Bradford and Gresham.

Plenty of critics said Bradford made a mistake by coming back. Their volume only grew after Bradford suffered a shoulder injury that eventually required surgery in a season-opening loss, derailing the Sooners' second chance at a title. Thursday night, Bradford proved them wrong by becoming the first name off the board.

"I also want to salute these guys for staying in school," Stoops said, adding that each of the four players has or nearly has a degree. "I donít know how you could look at this draft and think that these players did anything but improve themselves by staying for another year."

no one really notices things like this until some random (like the OP) brings it up. now that you've brought it up, i feel for Oklahoma. You have 3 top 4 NFL Draft pix and couldnt get it done???

:lol :lol :lol

PS: not to mention Gresham. that would make it 4 1st rounders and 3 in the top 4 overall...SMH

alot of people noticed and Bradford and Gresham were injured last year...

Trent Williams was also the only guy on that o-line worth a shit...the reason Bradford got injured in the first place.

yea i know..but it must've been sad for a sooner fan to watch this draft and realize how much talent they had and never won anything with it.
