Best Missouri Offensive Player

TE Albert Okwuegbunam, Jr.
You want a prototype NFL tight end talent? Here you go. The 6-5, 255-pounder was banged up a bit last year – missing time in four games – but he still managed to catch 43 passes for 466 yards and six scores after coming up with 11 touchdowns catches as freshman. He’s got size, downfield speed, and the hands to be Kelly Bryant’s top target in the big moments.

5. RB Larry Rountree, Jr.

Best Missouri Defensive Player

LB Cale Garrett, Sr.  
The 6-3, 230-pounder started out with a strong 47-tackle freshman season, and turned into a star as a sophomore with 105 stops and three sacks. Last year, he took it all to another level with 112 tackles with a sack and 6.5 tackles for loss as an All-SEC performer.

The man in the middle isn’t going to be too much of a pass rusher, and he didn’t pick off any passes after coming up with three in his first two seasons, but he’s got good range and came up with four double-digit stop games.
