  • Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler is one of the top quarterback prospects for the 2022 NFL Draft. While Rattler was solid against Nebraska, he wasn't overly impressive in this rivalry renewal.

    On the first drive of the game, Rattler threw some short passes to set him up for a goal line plunge into the end zone. His best play came on a third-and-11 when he had plenty of time, rolled out, and then fired a missile to the sideline to get the first down.

    Later in the first quarter, Rattler forced a pass into double coverage, and was he lucky it wasn't intercepted by the safety, who couldn't control the catch. It actually was the second time in the quarter that Rattler threw a pass into a crowd. For a lot of the game, the Nebraska defense did a solid job of limiting Oklahoma's explosive offense. Rattler later threw a short touchdown pass, and in the fourth quarter, he used his legs for a run of 20 yards to set up a short rushing touchdown that gave the Sooners a commanding lead. Rattler completed 24-of-34 passes for 214 yards and a touchdown against the Cornhuskers.

    For the NFL, Rattler has a good skill set with a quality arm, mobility, patience in the pocket, and the ability to avoid the rush to extend plays. However, he makes some young mistakes with his decision-making, forcing passes into coverage and making some risky throws. Rattler will need to work on that in the weeks to come.


  • Oklahoma defenive tackle Perrion Winfrey is a talented defensive lineman, but the Sooners aren't doing a good job of letting Winfrey show what he is capable of. Throughout this game, they had the speedy and athletic Winfrey playing a lot of nose tackle as a zero-technique even though he is at his best using his speed to fire a gap and cause havoc in the backfield.

    In the first quarter, Winfrey did a nice job of getting off blocks and snuffing a quarterback draw on a third down, which forced a field goal attempt from Nebraska. Otherwise, he did a solid job of holding his ground at the line, but was not making big plays. Oklahoma let Winfrey rush late in the fourth quarter, and he bulldozed his way down the pocket with his bull rush to take down Adrian Martinez for a game-clinching sack in the final minute of the game.

    Here is what an area scout texted me about Winfrey during this game, "Winfrey is a pure three-technique. He'll get better usage of his skill set in the NFL. They play him as a 0 or 4i primarily in their scheme. He's better when they let him tee off and 1-gap. His production gets hit taking so many base reps. They're doing what they need to in order to win. It's our job as scouts to project him properly.”

    Winfrey has an early-round skill set, and it will be interesting to see if Oklahoma lets him put that on display this season.
