Big 12 Football 2016 All-Conference Team

Athlon honors the best of the Big 12 for 2016.

Oklahoma is the Big 12’s clear favorite this season, and despite the loss of a couple of key players on both sides of the ball, the Sooners lead the way on Athlon’s All-Big 12 team with 18 selections for 2016. Additionally, eight Oklahoma players – including running back Samaje Perine and quarterback Baker Mayfield – are projected to earn first-team honors this year. TCU (15) and Oklahoma State (13) are just behind Oklahoma in overall selections, while Texas checks in with 11 picks.  

 

Athlon Sports released its full predictions for the Big 12 last week. Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the league with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2016.

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2016. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2016 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
