Iowa State tight end Charlie Kolar made the cut for the second team. The junior tight end had 39 receptions for 538 yards and 6 touchdowns this season.
Oklahoma center Creed Humphrey, considered one of the best centers in college football, also made the Second Team. He is the reigning Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year.
Texas defensive end/linebacker Joseph Ossai made the second team defense as a defensive lineman. He had made the AP and FWAA First Teams as a linebacker.
