Here is Oklahoma State football beat writer Gina Mizell's analysis of the Cowboys' depth chart:

No., Name, Ht., Wt,, Class


LEFT TACKLE

71, Parker Graham, 6-7, 292, Jr.

69, Devin Davis, 6-5, 275, RFr.

LEFT GUARD

70, Jonathan Rush, 6-4, 284, Sr.

51, Brandon Webb, 6-3, 326, Jr.

CENTER

60, Evan Epstein, 6-3, 291, Sr.

54, Jake Jenkins, 6-3, 281, So.

RIGHT GUARD

68, Lane Taylor, 6-3, 328, Sr.

76, Eli Dickerson, 6-6, 310, So.

RIGHT TACKLE

58, Daniel Koenig, 6-6, 295, So.

75, Chris Grisbhy, 6-5, 315, So.

Offensive line analysis: The loss of Michael Bowie, who left the program after violating team rules just before camp, created a void at left tackle. Graham has moved to that position from right tackle, which slides Koenig into a starting role. Taylor is regarded as one of the nation's top linemen, and Rush returns from injury to give the Cowboys another solid veteran presence on the inside. Though a senior, Epstein has never snapped the football in a college game.

TIGHT END

14, Justin Horton, 6-3, 254, Sr.

44, Jeremy Seaton, 6-2, 247, RFr.

WIDE RECEIVER

82, Isaiah Anderson, 5-10, 168, Sr.

17 Charlie Moore, 6-2, 202, Jr.

INSIDE RECEIVER

5, Josh Stewart, 5-10, 170, So.

6, David Glidden, 5-7, 171, RFr.

INSIDE RECEIVER

18, Blake Jackson, 6-3, 238, Jr.

80, Torrance Carr, 6-2, 226, RFr.

WIDE RECEIVER

87, Tracy Moore, 6-2, 220, Sr.

2, C.J. Curry, 6-2, 185, Fr.

Receivers analysis: Tracy Moore is the Cowboys' top returning receiver, and Charlie Moore was the breakout star of the spring game. But with the departure of Justin Blackmon, Josh Cooper and others, OSU will see plenty of new faces catching passes this season, including Jackson, a junior college transfer, Carr and Glidden, two redshirt freshmen, and Curry and Blake Webb, two true freshmen. Stewart, who saw plenty of game action as a true freshman last season, could develop into a sophomore star.

RUNNING BACK

1, Joseph Randle, 6-1, 194, Jr.

31, Jeremy Smith, 5-10, 204, Jr.

FULLBACK

9, Kye Staley, 5-10, 236, Sr.

39, Teddy Johnson, 5-11, 220, So.

Running backs analysis: Randle and Smith make up one of the best backfield combos in the nation, which should be a huge help to freshman quarterback Wes Lunt as he adjusts to the college game. With Blackmon and Brandon Weeden gone, Randle has become the face of the program, and with good reason. He scored 24 rushing touchdowns last season, which ranked fourth in the nation, and is also a dangerous receiving threat out of the backfield.
