2007 Preseason All-Big 12 Offense

Offensive Player of the Year
QB Colt McCoy, Texas
Before last season began, no one would've believed that sophomore Colt McCoy would complete 68% of his passes for 2,570 yards and 29 touchdowns with just seven interceptions. There was a stretch during the middle of the year when he should've been considered for the Heisman with 19 touchdown passes and two interceptions over a six-game stretch, and then came the Kansas State game, when he got injured on an early touchdown run. Texas then found out how vital he was as it lost to the Wildcats, and lost two weeks later to Texas A&M when he was far less than 100%. While not a runner like Vince Young (who is?), he can certainly move and will get more carries and get on the move far more.

2007 Preseason All-Big 12 Defense

Defensive Player of the Year
LB/DE Ian Campbell, Kansas State
After a stunning breakout season with 67 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss and 11.5 sacks at an end, junior Ian Campbell will move to an outside linebacker in the new scheme. In reality, he'll likely play a hybrid of end and linebacker to do whatever is needed, but wherever he lines up, he'll be one of the Big 12's most dangerous defenders who'll need to be accounted for on every play. At 6-5 and 232 pounds, he has decent size, to go along with far too much speed for most tackles. The former walk-on was surprisingly strong against the run and could be devastating in all areas with more room to move.
