Offensive MVP: Sterling Shepard

This was tough, but Sterling Shepard definitely deserves the praise of the offense’s most valuable player.

Outside of Shepard, Oklahoma had little experience at receiver and it was very obvious.

Trevor Knight grew very fond of Shepard and his pass-catching ability; though, Oklahoma’s pass game was not nearly the same when No. 3 was sidelined by a groin injury, which is why I give Shepard the nod.

Sterling Shepard’s absence allowed other receives to develop, but his impact was missed and it forced OU to basically become a run-only offense.

Shepard’s efforts, also, seemed most valuable, because OU’s depth at running back still gave them a chance to run the ball up and down the field with a fold of Keith Ford, Perine, and Ross.

Sterling Shepard was OU’s only true receiving threat, but we did see improvements from Durron Neal and Michiah Quick later in the season, but not on the level of No. 3.

It looks like Shepard should be back for next season, and he can hopefully continue to blossom as an athlete and develop in to a must-have draft pick in 2016. OU will benefit greatly if he and Dorial Green-Beckham decide to stay.
