The Cowboys lose a part-time starter in Anderson, but gain much more with Tracy Moore’s return. He successfully made the transition from inside to outside before the injury, but can move back inside when needed. As mentioned in this piece, it will be most interesting to see how his chemistry develops with all three quarterback contenders. He had it with Lunt, not so much with Walsh and was hurt by the time Chelf became the starter.
Hays surprisingly surfaced to the top of a large group of freshman receivers that arrived in Stillwater last season, but Curry, Sheperd and Seales are all regarded as guys with big-play potential. Seales is especially intriguing, as he was a late-bloomer in high school.
The Moores should lock up the starting spots, while the youngsters battle for the backup roles.
