His height, strength, speed and hands make him the most complete tight end in college football. Sophomore Ryan Broyles will be a consistent target after emerging as a freshman. Adron Tennell had an impressive spring and fall, but he has just 16 catches in three seasons. Bradford did get a new receiver in former running back Mossis Madu, who changed positions in the spring.
→Where are the Sooners strongest?
Quarterback is the easy answer, but the Sooners have enough depth at defensive line to field perhaps two of the nation’s best front fours. Defensive tackle Gerald McCoy headlines the unit, but he’s surrounded by a wealth of talent in Jeremy Beal, Auston English and Adrian Taylor. The second unit has a handful of players, specifically Frank Alexander and DeMarcus Granger, who will see plenty of playing time and could become starters by the end of the season.
