Sooners in the NFL
Elite Program Prepares Players for Next Level
The league. Pro ball. The next level. It is the dream of every college football player. It's the reality for many Oklahoma Sooners. Few programs in the country attract talent and prepare it to move on better than Oklahoma. Ten Sooners were tabbed in the 2005 NFL Draft alone, including two in the first round and five in the first two.
OU plays pro schemes, has two coaches who had lengthy NFL careers, and employs a rigourous strength and conditioning program that is so effective that many of those who have gone on to professional careers come back to Norman in the off-season to continue their training.
Players with the ability and drive to make the NFL flourish here at Oklahoma and leave this campus equipped to play football beyond their OU playing days.
