With Oklahoma State spring football past the halfway point, it’s a great time to take a closer look at the Cowboys roster. During the final days of spring football I complete my position-by-position look at the Pokes.
Headliner: Senior Markelle Martin. A leader who will set the tone for the Cowboy defense in 2011, Martin brings a physical mindset and versatility to the table. The former cornerback likely has a NFL future and could be a All-Big 12 performer this season.
Next in line: Sophomore Daytawion Lowe. Lowe is getting valuable reps this spring with Martin sidelined by a shoulder injury. The former Carl Albert standout is returning from a shoulder injury of his own and could become a key member of OSU’s defense this season. He was slated to be the Pokes’ nickelback before suffering the shoulder injury last summer.
Could surprise: Sophomore Zack Craig. A solid special teams performer as a freshman, Craig has the physical talent to make an impact in the secondary. As he gets more comfortable at the safety position and within the Pokes’ defense he could earn some playing time.
