Scott: Projecting What Oklahoma State’s First Depth Chart Could Look Like

OSU’s first two-deep should drop Thursday.



[Devin Wilber/PFB]

We’re just a week away from the eve of another Oklahoma State football season.

Cowboy coach Mike Gundy will hold his first media luncheon on Thursday, where OSU will likely release it’s first two-deep of the year. Here are my best guesses on how the offense and defense will look with some thoughts below each.


QB — Spencer Sander, Gunnar Gundy
RB — Dominic Richardson, Jaden Nixon
WR — Braydon Johnson, Rashod Owens
WR — Jaden Bray, Bryson Green
WR — Brennan Presley, Braylin Presley
WR — John Paul Richardson, CJ Tate
CW — Braden Cassity, Quinton Stewart
LT — Caleb Etienne, Jason Brooks
LG — Taylor Miterko, Tyrone Webber
C — Preston Wilson, Joe Michalski
RG — Hunter Woodard, Tyrone Webber
RT — Jake Springfield, Jason Brooks

The most notable thing people will take from this is QB2. There could be a big, fat “OR” between Gunnar Gundy and Garret Rangel on OSU’s two-deep, but I think if push came to shove, Gunnar would play in Spencer Sanders’ absence. I also wouldn’t be surprised to see “OR” multiple times at running back behind Dominic Richardson with Jaden Nixon, Ollie Gordon and Deondre Jackson all in the mix.

Blaine Green is the most notable omission off this list. Mike Gundy said a few weeks back that he was dealing with a wrist injury, and Gundy didn’t have an update for Green’s status last week. That could leave the Cowboy Back position particularly thin in terms of total playmaking ability, though Braden Cassity and Quinton Stewart are able-bodied blockers who bring some versatility to the table.

On the offensive line, Gundy said the goal is to have three tackles, three guards and two centers which is why Jason Brooks and Tyrone Webber are pulling double duty here as backups.


DE — Collin Oliver OR Brock Martin
DT — Brendon Evers, Aden Kelley
DT — Sione Asi, Samuela Tuihalamaka
DE — Tyler Lacy, Trace Ford
LB — Mason Cobb, Lamont Bishop
LB — Xavier Benson, Nickolas Martin
CB — Jabbar Muhammad, Demarco Jones
CB — Korie Black, De’kelvion Beamon
S — Jason Taylor, Lyrik Rawls
S — Kendal Daniels, Sean Michael Flanagan
S — Thomas Harper, Kanion Williams

I have no clue who the Cowboys’ second-team corners are, a position that I’ve had an odd interest in throughout fall camp. I’ve asked Mike Gundy, Jabbar Muhammad and Korie Black who has stood out among the young corners, and all gave the company answer something along the lines of, “They’re all playing well.”

I also ran out of room on the defensive line, but I’ve heard good things about Nathan Latu and Kody Walterscheid, so don’t be surprised if they play a role up front, too. I also wouldn’t be surprised if Tyler Lacy gets more run at defensive tackle this season than he has in the past.
