With the season fast approaching, the staff takes a look at who we believe will be the Offensive MVPs for the Baylor Bears.

With the season fast approaching, the BearsIllustrated staff takes a look who we believe will be the offensive MVPs for the Baylor Bears this year.

Corey Coleman: The Bears best player during conference season in 2014, Coleman gets to put a full season together in 2015. With the stat padding found in the Bears soft non-conference schedule, a 1600 yard season could easily be in store for one of the nation's most explosive players. Add in some kick returning in big spots, a dash of being a running back when the Bears go to 5-wide receivers, and some wicked blocks down the field for his speedy wide receiver friends, Coleman is the Bears offensive identity. Fast, agile, explosive, and almost always scoring a touchdown.

Shock LInwood: I'm gonna go out on a small limb here and say Linwood. He will be a key threat for this offense to be successful this year. It will be imperative that Baylor establish the run, in order to take some pressure off of first year starter Seth Russell, and Linwood will be one of the keys for this. If Shock can start the season strong and be the type of RB that he showed he could be during last years TCU game, then this offense will be very successful!

Spencer Drango: In 2013, we figured out just how much Drango means to Baylor's offense. Once he went down, the offensive line took a big step back. Now healthy and with four other returners, Drango and the offensive line have the potential to be the biggest driver of Baylor's success.

Seth Russell: With weapons all around him he has the accuracy and arm strength to complete every pass in the game. Also has the running ability to make throws out of the pocket and run the option.
