Shawn Oakman gets all the headlines for the Baylor defense, and rightfully so. But that doesn't mean there isn't star power elsewhere on the Bears' D.

According to ESPN, Oakman isn't even the best player on that side of the ball for Baylor. That distinction goes to Andrew Billings, the disruptive defensive tackle the plays right next to him.

Also making an appearance on the top five Big 12 list is offensive tackle Spencer Drango, who should make Seth Russell's transition into the starting role under center go very smoothly.

But the bottom line if you're a Baylor fan is this: Three of the top five players in the Big 12 are Bears? Not too shabby. Not too shabby at all.
