    PFN Preseason All-Big 12 Team 2022: Make way for Baylor’s returning offensive linemen

    The PFN All-Big 12 Team awards the top players on both sides of the ball from the conference ahead of the 2022 college football season.

    For one final college football season, the Preseason All-Big 12 Team features Oklahoma and Texas. However, it’s also the last year before the conference welcomes BYU, Cincinnati, and UCF into its ranks which will change its course for the next few decades. Presented in conjunction with our release of our College Football All-Americans, we at PFN debut our 2022 Preseason All-Big 12 Team, as voted on by our team of national analysts and NFL draft evaluators.

    PFN’s 2022 All-Big 12 Team

    It is important to note that these teams may look a bit different than the all-conference teams listed by each individual conference. Our teams mirror our All-Americans, taking into consideration not only what a player has accomplished to date but looking forward to what we expect to see based on the growth of the athlete’s career.

Dillon Gabriel earns the top honors at quarterback after transferring in from UCF as he’s one of the premier downfield passers in all of college football. He edged new rival Spencer Sanders out for the top spot as the Oklahoma State quarterback headlines the second team.
