Jammal Brown, OT - 2003, 2004
Offensive tackle Jammal Brown was a named a unanimous All-American in 2004. The Lawton, Okla., native was also an All-American in 2003 and a three-time All-Big 12 Conference standout for the Sooners.

Brown won the 2004 Outland Trophy presented to the nation's most outstanding interior lineman. He became the fifth Outland winner from Oklahoma and the first since Greg Roberts in 1978.

As a senior in 2004, Brown paved the way for running back Adrian Peterson and protected quarterback Jason White -- both Heisman Trophy finalists -- as the Sooners completed a second consecutive undefeated regular season and won the 2004 Big 12 Conference Championship.

Brown led the team in knockdowns and did not allow a sack or a quarterback hurry the entire season. The 2004 Sooner offensive line surrendered just seven sacks in 12 games.

As a junior in 2003, Brown had the highest season grade among Oklahoma's offensive linemen and finished with a team-high 127 knockdown blocks and just one sack allowed. Brown's athleticism and speed for a 313-pounder were on display in OU's win over UCLA when he ran down Bruin linebacker Spencer Havner to make a touchdown-saving tackle at the end of a 72-yard interception return.

As a sophomore, Brown had 80 knockdowns with just one penalty and was just one percentage point out of the team lead in offensive line grading. He started every game at right tackle and was part of a line that allowed just 18 sacks all season (less than two per game).

Brown contributed early as a redshirt freshman in 2001 when he played several series at right tackle at Nebraska. He earned All-State honors in high school as one of the top defensive tackles in the nation at Lawton Macarthur.
