Duke Robinson, OL - 2007
Offensive lineman Duke Robinson was named first team All-American by the Associated Press, Football Writers, Sporting News and Sports Illustrated for the 2007 season. Robinson was also a consensus All-Big 12 pick. He started at left guard in 12 of Oklahoma's 13 games and saw action in all 13 contests. 
 
Robinson, a 6-5, 352-pound left guard, has consistently posted the highest grade among OU's mammoth line. He also tops the team in knockdown blocks. The junior from Atlanta logged 663 plays on the season and graded at 78%. He was credited with 97 knockdown blocks, including a high of 13 against Miami.

The Sooner line is among the best at protecting the quarterback. OU has allowed a total of just 11 sacks through its first 12 games and ranks No. 5 nationally in fewest sacks allowed.

That protection has allowed redshirt freshman quarterback Sam Bradford to post some of the best passing numbers in school history. He ranks No. 1 nationally in passing efficiency with a rating of 182.23.
 
Robinson helped clear the way for an Oklahoma offense that ranks No. 3 nationally in scoring at 43.4 points per game. The Sooners are No. 4 in sacks allowed with less than one per game.
