The Oklahoma Sooners offense has been a thing of beauty in recent seasons, dominating opponents from whistle to whistle. They continue to field many of the most dynamic, explosive players in the nation, which is why the Sooners football program has been a staple of the college football world.

While there are many to choose from, let's take a look at three of the greatest wide receivers in Oklahoma program history.

3. Marquise Brown, 2017-18

Marquise "Hollywood" Brown just finished up his rookie season in the NFL, where he was a dynamic playmaker for the Ravens. However, he was just as terrific in college. Brown is seventh all-time in receiving yards, with 2,413, to go along with 17 touchdowns. The most impressive part about this is that he was able to do it in only two seasons with Oklahoma. Should he have spent a third season, it's fairly safe to assume that he would total more than 1,000 yards yet again, which would have him up to second in program history.

2. CeeDee Lamb, 2017-19

CeeDee Lamb is the latest great wide receiver to come out of the Oklahoma program, with him expected to be drafted high in next month's NFL Draft. Lamb ranks third all-time in receiving yards for the Sooners, at 3,292. He totaled 32 receiving touchdowns in his three seasons with the school (second-most in school history), and he averaged a crazy 19.0 yards per reception, showing how explosive he can be.

1. Ryan Broyles, 2008-11

Ryan Broyles is the all-time receiving leader for Oklahoma, and it's not especially close. Broyles had 4,586 receiving yards in his Oklahoma career, which is over 1,100 more than second on the list. The impressive stats do not end there. He caught 349 passes (116 more than second on the list) and a whopping 45 touchdowns (13 more than second place). Broyles was also able to rush for one touchdown and return two punts for touchdowns during his four years as a Sooner.
