In all his years as the OU football coach, Bob Stoops never experienced an NFL Draft. He reserved that experience for the players’ family. But last weekend gave him a taste of the family draft experience. On this episode of Conversations with Coach, Stoops and Sellout Crowd’s Jenni Carlson talk about that change of perspective, from the head coach of a draft prospect to the father of one.

Episode highlights:

1:24: What the NFL Draft was like for Bob as the father of former OU receiver Drake Stoops.

3:18: How Drake could fit as an undrafted free agent with the Los Angeles Rams.

4:14: How he approached draft day as the Sooners coach.

5:05: His memories of the 2010 NFL Draft, when Sooners Sam Bradford, Gerald McCoy and Trent Williams were drafted first, third and fourth.

6:51: Why he never made it to the NFL Draft green room.

7:22: His response any time an NFL coach or scout called about one of his players.
