Bradford was joined by Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh who edged out Gerald McCoy for the Preseason Defensive Player of the Year and Baylor's Phil Taylor as Preseason Newcomer of the Year.

Bradford is joined on the first-team by Trent Williams, Jermaine Gresham and Demarco Murray.
Defensively, Gerald McCoy, Travis Lewis, Dominique Franks and Jeremy Beal also represented the Sooners as first-team selections.
