OU's Sanchez Declares For NFL Draft

Posted: Updated:

One day after losing in the Orange Bowl to Clemson, the Sooners took another loss when it came to a crucial roster spot. Cornerback Zack Sanchez has decided to forgo his final year of eligibility and has declared for the NFL draft.

Despite Sanchez’s impressive 7 interceptions despite missing three games due to injury, the redshirt junior surprised many with his decision. If Sanchez were to play in college one more season, he’d be able to better improve on his draft stock, while also competing on a top-ranked team in Oklahoma that has another chance to return to the College Football Playoff with 16 returning starters.

ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper currently has Sanchez ranked as the No. 8 draft eligible cornerback.
