New offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen thinks Oklahoma State has four solid starters at receiver. Here's an argument why each receiver could become the No. 1 target for Brandon Weeden.

No. 84 Hubert Anyiam, 6-0, 198, Junior

Ask Missouri. Anyiam torched the Tigers with 10 catches for 119 yards and a score in 2009. If he takes his game to the next level, he can be a consistent problem for opposing defensive coordinators.

No. 81 Justin Blackmon, 6-1, 207, Sophomore

Very athletic but, maybe more importantly, has the mindset of an elite receiver. He just needs to turn his potential into consistent production.

No. 25 Josh Cooper, 5-11, 192, Junior

Since he ran a similar offense at Mustang, Cooper knows the new scheme as well as anyone on the squad, he's the best route runner and he has a great relationship with Weeden.

No. 87 Tracy Moore, 6-2, 215, Sophomore

One of the biggest surprises of 2009, Moore has continued to impress, locking down a starting receiver spot in the spring. Moore has arguably the best hands on the team and excellent body control, which could make him a key target on third down and in goal-line situations.
