QB: Baker Mayfield, 2015-17: Three times finished in the top four of Heisman Trophy voting.
TB: Samaje Perine, 2014-16: At a school that claims Tommy McDonald, Steve Owens, Greg Pruitt, Joe Washington and Billy Sims, the all-time leading rusher is Perine, with 4,122 yards.
WR: CeeDee Lamb, 2017-19: Monster numbers in three years – 173 catches for 3,292 yards and 32 touchdowns – and the ultimate big-play threat, either on deep balls or yards after the catch.
WR: Sterling Shepard, 2012-15: Never made all-American but in the decade led OU in catches (233), receiving yards (3,482) and touchdown catches (26).
WR: Kenny Stills, 2010-12: 24 touchdown catches, including clutch road plays against West Virginia and Florida State that saved games. What a decade for receivers; Ryan Broyles, Dede Westbrook and Marquise Brown relegated to second team.
TE: Mark Andrews, 2015-17: ’17 John Mackey Award winner; had 112 career catches for 1,765 yards and 22 touchdowns.
FB: Trey Millard, 2010-13: Three-time first-team all-Big 12, had 70 career catches for 677 yards and rushed for 538 yards.
