OSU football: The case for and against each quarterback candidate

There has been little consistent separation between Oklahoma State starting quarterback contenders Clint Chelf, J.W. Walsh and Wes Lunt. Here are some of the qualities coaches will be weighing when evaluating the quarterback candidates.

Case against: Walsh's throwing motion is not pretty, which really isn't an issue as long as the ball gets to the right spot on time. What is an issue is that he's thrown the most interceptions in recent practices.

Wes Lunt, true freshman

Case for: With size and a strong arm, Lunt's skill set most resembles Weeden, who obviously thrived in the Cowboys' spread offense. He has, understandably, shown the most improvement from the beginning of practice until now and is delivering the ball with more confidence as he continues get comfortable in the OSU offense. Gundy said Lunt is further along, both physically and mentally, than he expected and called Lunt the best freshman passer he's ever been around. He's also the best pure passer of the three quarterbacks and has thrown the least interceptions in the Cowboys' three scrimmages.

Case against: Gundy said Lunt isn't even halfway to truly understanding what it takes to be a college football player. He's made plenty of mistakes during the spring and still hasn't completely learned the offense. And starting a true freshman quarterback is risky, no matter how talented he is.
