Every weekday morning, a member of the SoonerNation gives his take on three things happening in the Sooner sports world.
1. Detroit must have liked what it saw in Norman this past season. The Lions took three Sooners in Ryan Broyles (2nd), Ronnell Lewis (4th) and Travis Lewis (7th). Detroit got excellent value in the Hammer, who some viewed as a potential early second round pick. It will be interesting to see what they do with Lewis though, since he projected out as a 3-4 outside linebacker. Detroit runs the 4-3. Right way, though, the Hammer will make a huge impact on special teams, which is something the Lions must have considered in selecting him. Broyles, meanwhile, couldn't have gone to a better situation. The Lions have a prolific offense, a stud QB and maybe the best WR in all of pro football. Broyles should be an instant starter in the slot, assuming he's healthy.
2. A few teams that might be interested in drafting Landry Jones next year: Arizona, San Francisco (remember: Jones beat Jim Harbaugh in the '09 Sun Bowl), Kansas City and Oakland.
3. Bedlam baseball is a must-win series for both clubs. It's hard to envision the loser this weekend advancing to regionals. OU lost to OSU in Stillwater last week, but is coming off a nice two-game sweep of Kansas. OSU also is coming off a sweep of K-State.
