The Sooners QB Baker Mayfield had a special 2016 season 3,965 passing yards along with 40 TD passes and only 8 interceptions. He also added 6 rushing TDs. The Sooner offense was a high powered one, averaging 43.9 ppg. The team had 2 RBs go over 1,000 yards and 10 TDs last year (Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine) but both guy are now on NFL rosters.
Not to be forgotten is Dede Westbrook who may have been the most explosive and dominate WR in college football last year ( 80 rec 1,524 yards and 17 TDs). With only Mayfield returning, a Playoff berth may be tougher than they hoped it be but still in the realm of possibility.
