Your Big 12 All-Conference Team: Receiver

It's time to decide the most dangerous of the skill position players for our All-Conference team. First we'll decide the receivers and then the running backs. The selection base is large and the talent is deep but we can only take two. Here's how we'll do it. Use the poll on the right sidebar to vote for who you believe is the conference's top receiver and we'll take the top two vote getters and place them on the team. As always you can use the diaries section to rate and debate.
