NFL Draft 2012: Oklahoma's Travis Lewis Listed Among Top 10 Senior Prospects

Lewis is among the country's top linebacker prospects for the next level.

Oklahoma is loaded. That's an assumption you make about any team ranked No. 1 in the country at some point, but the Oklahoma Sooners are truly loaded on both sides of the ball with future NFL level talent. From Landry Jones at quarterback to wide receiver Ryan Broyles to linebacker Travis Lewis, Bob Stoops and his team have stacked the roster and many of today's college stars will hear their names selected this April for the NFL Draft.

With that said, it's never too late to get a good start on looking at NFL Draft prospects you should know about coming out of the Big 12, and Lewis is a linebacker making a lot of noise. Even recently, Wes Bunting at the National Football Post labeled him one of his favorite senior prospects.

Bunting writes, "He’s a bit undersized and doesn’t tackle as well as you would like inside the box. However, he’s a good run and hit backer who plays the run well and will be able to make plays vs. the pass game in the NFL. Looks like a day one starter to me as a 43 backer, either on the weak side or possibly in the middle."

It's further proof of the elite level talent that OU has to say that there are NFL day-one starters playing on their defense. And that's what makes the Sooners one of the top teams in the country.
