The twelfth-ranked Oklahoma Sooners will be center stage this weekend when they face Texas for the annual Red River Showdown in Dallas. There will be many players to keep an eye on — for the sake of their draft stock.
Pro Football Focus listed eight Oklahoma players in its list of draft-eligible players to watch in Week 7 – just in the Oklahoma-Texas game alone.
