The Sooners have the most of any program.

ESPN released its All-America team this morning, and Oklahoma is heavily represented.

Quarterback Baker Mayfield, tight end Mark Andrews and offensive tackle Orlando Brown are all on the squad.

We all know what Mayfield, the Heisman Trophy winner, brings to the table. Here's what ESPN said about Andrews and Brown.

Although Mayfield lost several of his targets from 2016, Andrews remained and turned in an incredible season with 906 receiving yards, leading all FBS tight ends. OU's first Mackey Award winner averaged 15.6 yards per reception with eight touchdowns. Andrews had four or more receptions in nine contests, including seven in the Big 12 championship win over TCU.

He's the nation's premier offensive tackle, protecting the nation's premier quarterback on the nation's premier offensive line. The Outland Trophy finalist helped Oklahoma lead the nation in yards per play (8.44). The Sooners' passing game is spectacular, but the run attack came on strong later in the season. Brown earned Big 12 offensive lineman of the year honors for the second straight season.

ESPN also put out its All-Big 12 team today. You can view that here.
