As the program atop the Big 12 hierarchy, there are high expectations on the Oklahoma Sooners entering 2021. With a talent-filled roster, the team is poised for a championship. With key playmakers on both sides of the line of scrimmage, several cornerstones landed on PFF’s highest-graded returning Big 12 players. Among the premier compilation, quarterback Spencer Rattler, wide receiver Marvin Mims, edge Nik Bonitto and defensive end Isaiah Thomas cracked the list.

Spencer Rattler and Marvin Mims are one of the best QB/WR duos across the college football landscape. Rattler’s tight-window accuracy and electrifying off-platform throws combined with his favorite deep threat in Mims, that pair will be lethal in 2021. Mims’ flashes in OU’s vertical and screen game elevates Lincoln Riley’s offensive attack. Those two will set the tone come fall.

On the opposite side of the ball, Nik Bonitto and Isaiah Thomas have helped create Alex Grinch’s formidable front in Norman. Bonitto’s burst off the edge from a two-point stance collapses pockets and disrupts opponents’ passing game. On the other end of the line, Thomas has assumed a leadership role and was named the “MVP of the defense” by Grinch following his impressive 2020 campaign. His production in the trenches helped solidify the D-line and he has position flexibility, penetrating from the interior in Grinch’s one-gap scheme. Both will be key components donning Crimson and Cream this upcoming season.
