Dez Briscoe breezed past Harrison Hill in the first round, while Marcus Henry had one of the closest votes to date against Bob Johnson, edging a 5-4 victory.

(1) Dezmon Briscoe

Over his three-year career at KU, Briscoe took over the top spot in most of the receiving categories in the school record books, including receiving yards and receiving TDs. In addition, he ranks #10 all-time in the Big-12 in both receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. He also holds a school record with seven 100-yard games in a season, including four consecutive 100-yard games. He was a first team All-Big 12 selection in his junior year of 2009.

Briscoe elected to leave Kansas after his junior year, and was the 191st overall selection (6th round) of the 2010 NFL draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. He bounced around for a couple of years before finally being cut by the Cowboys during final roster cuts prior to the 2014 season.

(9) Marcus Henry

Henry played at KU from 2004 until 2007, making a name for himself in that magical 2007 season that Jayhawk fans remember so fondly. Over his four-year KU career, Henry caught 104 passes for a total of 1598 yards and 13 scores. In 2007 alone, Henry snagged 54 for 1014 yards and 10 touchdowns. That season, he was second in the Big 12 with 18.8 yards per catch. He finished his KU career in the top-10 in receiving yards and receiving TDs.

Henry was drafted in the sixth round of the 2008 NFL draft (171st overall) by the New York Jets but he never played in the NFL.
