With seven selections made, the Sooners were tied for fifth with the most draft picks from any one school, tied with the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Texas Longhorns didn't have a single pick. Oklahoma didn't have a first round draft pick, but they made noise on day one as Marquise Brown was reunited with his former Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray after the Baltimore Ravens granted Brown a trade. The two join forces after connecting for 75 completions for more than 1,300 yards and 10 touchdowns. On day two of the draft is when things got rolling for the Oklahoma Sooners as Nik Bonitto came off the board at pick No. 64 to the Denver Broncos. Brian Asamoah went off the board a couple of picks later at No. 66 to the Minnesota Vikings. Perhaps the surprise of the night was that Perrion Winfrey went undrafted through the first three rounds. It didn't take a team long to pick him up as Winfrey went at the top of the fourth round to the Cleveland Browns. Later in the draft, the Browns also added Michael Woods and Isaiah Thomas.
