Weeden is stepping up, who’s next?
It’s July which means football is right around the corner. It’s the perfect time to take a closer look at Oklahoma State’s roster, so over the next week I will be taking a in-depth, position-by-position look at the Cowboys heading into the 2010 football season. Let’s start with the quarterback position:
#3 Brandon Weeden, 6-4, 224, Redshirt Junior
Analysis: Weeden appears to be a excellent fit for Dana Holgorsen’s new offense. He has a very good arm and he has taken his focus and leadership to another level since the Cotton Bowl. That said, we will learn a lot about Weeden when the live bullets begin flying this fall. He responded well against Colorado, now he has to do that week in and week out.
#8 Johnny Deaton, 6-2, 200, True Freshman (Early enrollee)
Analysis: After looking lost for much of his first spring on campus–and understandably so– Deaton impressed in the final days of spring football. He earned the No. 2 spot heading into the spring game and appears to be the frontrunner to back up Weeden heading into fall camp. He’s talented but nonetheless, he’s still a freshman and will make freshman mistakes if he has to step in for Weeden at any point.
