Kansas wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe and safety Darrell Stuckey were both named to the media's preseason All-Big 12 team Friday.

Briscoe had 92 catches for 1,407 yards and 15 touchdowns as a sophomore last season. Stuckey, meanwhile, led the Jayhawks last year with five interceptions and was second on the team with 98 tackles.

Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford was named the preseason offensive player of the year, while Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was selected as the preseason defensive player of the year.

Baylor defensive tackle Phil Taylor was picked as the preseason newcomer of the year.

KU and NU led the Big 12 North schools with two selections each on the preseason All-Big 12 team. Missouri linebacker Sean Witherspoon was the only other Big 12 North player to be selected on the 26-person All-Big 12 roster.

wow. where has all of the talent gone from the big 12?

puddle, are you kidding? Really? Maybe a slight drop off at RB, but other than that, these players are all Sunday guys. But yes, there has been lost talent, but look at the league's QBs. No better conference in America for that position.
