Latest NFL.com Mock Draft Has Zero Future Big 12 Players in First Round

NFL: NFL Draft

The NFL Draft is set to begin on Thursday night, April 25th, in Detroit, Michigan, and it might be a quiet first night for the Big 12 Conference.

A new Mock Draft from NFL.com does not have a single future Big 12 players selected in the opening 32 picks.

 

There are players from Oklahoma and Texas on the list, but out of the 16 teams set to begin Big 12 Conference play this fall, there are no selections in the first round, per this Mock Draft.

Texas DT Byron Murphy comes in at No. 15 to the Chicago Bears (in a trade with the Colts), followed by teammates Xavier Worthy to the Chiefs at No. 19 (in a trade with the Rams), while Oklahoma OT Tyler Guyton goes No. 30 to the Oklahoma Sooners.

The first Big 12 player (of the 2024 teams) off the board in this Mock Draft is Arizona OT Jordan Morgan to the Washington Commanders. Next up, was Cooper Beebe, Kansas State offensive guard, going to the Arizona Cardinals at No. 47, and two picks later was Houston offensive tackle Patrick Paul. Two other offensive lineman went off the board in the second round of this Mock Draft with TCU’s Brandon Coleman at No. 59 to the Houston Texas and the round ended with the Rams taking BYU offensive tackle Kingsley Suamataia.

It would be more than disappointing to see the Big 12 end up with this kind of showing this week in the NFL Draft. But last year, the Big 12 had itself a good showing in the first round.

 

The 2023 NFL Draft featured six first-round selections from the Big 12 Conference, with Texas Tech‘s Tyree Wilson, Texas‘ Bijan Robinson, Iowa State‘s Will McDonald, TCU‘s Quentin Johnston, Oklahoma‘s Anton Harrison, and Kansas State‘s Felix Anudike-Uzomah all being selected in the first 32 picks.

This year, BetOnline set the league’s 2024 first-round total at 3.5, however that counts Oklahoma and Texas players, as those players are still technically from the Big 12.
