The Detroit Lions did their absolute best to build their fan base in the state of Oklahoma. The Lions drafted All-Everything receiver Ryan Broyles in the second round, defensive end Ronnell Lewis in the fourth round and then linebacker Travis Lewis in the seventh round.

Lewis was the first Sooner to lead the team in tackles for four consecutive seasons. He became the vocal and emotional leader of the Oklahoma defense. He was taken with the 223rd overall pick in the draft. His selection made him the seventh Sooner chosen which ties Oklahoma with Georgia for the second most players taken from the same school in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Congrats Travis!
