OKLAHOMA CITY -- TCU safety Nick Orr has been named to the watch list for the Jim Thorpe Award, presented to the nation's top defensive back.

Orr, selected to the 2017 Preseason All-Big 12 Team, was a second-team all-conference pick last season.

Pro Football Focus rated Orr No. 1 in its Playmaker Index among returning safeties in the Big 12.

A senior from DeSoto, Texas, Orr had a team-high four interceptions to go with six pass breakups last season. His 86 tackles placed third on the Horned Frogs. He has started all 26 games the last two seasons.
