A list of the best Oklahoma Sooners of all time. Beginning in 1895, the University of Oklahoma began its illustrious football program. To many in the Heartland, Oklahoma football has maintained a standard of excellence since that time. The school has been long associated with winning football and has produced some of the best players in college football history.

Oklahoma has a history of winning national titles, with seven claimed and a whopping ten unclaimed championships. Oklahoma is known for having one of the most fearsome defensive lines in college football history. Led by pro football Hall of Famer Lee Roy Selmon, Oklahoma can boast having a number of powerhouses along its defensive front. That doesn't even include the school's five Heisman Trophy winners. Sam Bradford is the most recent Oklahoma Sooner to bring the Heisman back to Norman. During his time in school, Bradford set a number of records and was the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft when he was selected by the St. Louis Rams.

Other famous players who are considered some of the greatest Sooners ever are flamboyant linebacker Brian Bosworth and running back Adrian Peterson. All Day powered Oklahoma to the 2004 BCS Championship game where it succumbed to USC. In fact, Oklahoma Sooners running backs have been among the best in college football. Since Bob Stoops became head coach in 1998, Oklahoma has had some of its best players and has a prosperous run. The school is a fixture in both the AP and Coaches Poll.

This is the list of the best Oklahoma Sooners football players of all time. If you notice a player who deserves to be on this list, feel free to add him. Vote or rerank this list according to who you think should be considered the greatest Sooners player ever.
