The Big 12 lost many players to the NFL draft, but there is still plenty of talent left to dominate the conference this season.
A slew of all-conference players are back. They include Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma State WR James Washington and Kansas DL Dorance Armstrong. All appear on our preseason team.
Our All-Big 12 offensive team does not deviate from the official All-Big 12 at all, other than kick returner Byron Pringle. However, the defense features a few changes. We slotted Ogbonnia Okoronkwo at edge rusher instead of linebacker, and put Taylor Young in his place at linebacker.
We included a TCU defensive back in our rotation – we just chose Ranthony Texada over Nick Orr.
Oklahoma leads the way with five selections. Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Texas each had four selections. Every team had at least one.
