Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.
1. Oklahoma’s pro day went off without a hitch on Wednesday with several Sooners impressing the pro scouts in attendance. James Winchester was the star of the day with top performances in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, three-cone drill, 60-yard shuttle and broad jump. You have to assume an NFL team is going to give him a shot -- he’s a quality deep snapper who was consistently around the ball on special teams and who tests well. Why wouldn’t you bring him in and give him a shot?
2. The news that Ryan Broyles is progressing ahead of schedule and expects to work out before the draft for NFL scouts should make everyone, not just Sooners fans, smile. One of the lasting images of last season was Broyles' reaction when he realized he had put on crimson and cream for the final time after tearing his ACL against Texas A&M on Nov. 5. It would be nice to see the most productive receiver in OU history overcome that disappointment and prove he is NFL-ready prior to the start of the NFL draft on April 26.
3. While all eyes are on the NCAA Men’s Tournament and March Madness, Sherri Coale’s squad is preparing to host an NCAA regional of its own at the Lloyd Noble Center. The OU women earned a No. 6 seed and will take on Michigan in the first round. If OU advances, the Sooners could host an interesting matchup with St. John’s. ESPN.com’s Michelle Smith has the Sooners potential second round matchup with St. John’s as the best potential matchup in the round of 32 while fellow ESPN.com analyst Kate Fagan picked the Sooners as “the team better than its seed” in the tournament.
