ESPN.com All-Big 12 team

It's never easy putting together an all-conference team, and this year's All-Big 12 team was no exception. It could have been even more difficult had several of the league’s top players -- such as TCU defensive end Devonte Fields, Oklahoma linebacker Corey Nelson and Baylor wideout Tevin Reese -- not suffered significant injuries.

Even then, there were more deserving players than there were spots. But we tried to remain true to the spirit of all-conference teams, picking the 26 best players according to their positions. As a result, our team doesn’t have four defensive ends, three cornerbacks or two centers, despite how much we would have liked to include Texas’ Cedric Reed, Kansas State’s B.J. Finney or Oklahoma’s Aaron Colvin.
