It was a competitive 2011 season in the Big 12 conference to say the least.
Four teams won 10 or more games, with the conference-winning Oklahoma State Cowboys leading the way with 12 victories, including a 41-38 overtime Fiesta Bowl win over the Stanford Cardinal.
In addition to Oklahoma State, it was a memorable year for Kansas State, Baylor and Oklahoma. All three programs posted matching 10-3 records.
The top talent from the conference comes into focus this week, as 49ers.com’s “49 in 49” pre-draft series continues with Big-12 Week.
The 49ers currently have seven players with Big 12 playing experience on the roster. Most recently, the 49ers used the No. 7 overall pick in last year’s draft to select Missouri defensive end Aldon Smith. As a rookie, Smith lined up at outside linebacker for the 49ers and led the team with 14.0 sacks, the most by a rookie in team history.
So which Big 12 player has the best chance to land with the 49ers in 2012?
