The Red River Rivalry wasn’t much of a contest, as the Sooners jumped out to a big early lead and never relented. Oklahoma won 63-21 in a breakout game from Trey Millard, who made the Texas Fairgrounds his personal playground.

My week in Mobile gave me a much better feeling for how NFL teams are viewing many prospects and what teams are looking for come April. The result is a pretty significant upheaval, though Lions fans will note some familiar names.
Please note that this is a projection of what I think teams might do in the given situation. I would not necessarily make the same choices in the given situations.
1. Kansas City Chiefs
Tyler Wilson, QB Arkansas–While Wilson didn’t necessarily “wow” the NFL crowd in Mobile, he’s clearly the best talent and most ready to lead a pro offense right away. Teams like that he handled a trainwreck situation with aplomb, an important attribute when going #1 overall.

This is underclassmen declaration season, which means some players listed here are not necessarily going to be in the draft come April. Lots of potential management and coaching changes make predicting even tougher. Please note this are approximately the slots where I think players will be taken and it does not necessarily reflect where I believe players should be drafted.
1. Kansas City Chiefs
Luke Joeckel, T, Texas A&M. In years where there is no quarterback that screams “take me!” at the top, teams typically do one of two things. Some go for the top defensive talent (Mario Williams, Courtney Brown), while others go for the best offensive line player (Jake Long, Orlando Pace). Without knowing who will be the GM or the coach, the safer pick is the top offensive tackle. That is Joeckel, should he declare. Of course some teams have opted to take a QB anyways (Jamarcus Russell, Sam Bradford), and the Chiefs could very well go down that road as well with Geno Smith or Tyler Wilson.
