Based on our observations, the way the squad was split for the spring game, and factoring missing players that were injured for part of (or all of) spring football, here is our guess at what the current Oklahoma State Cowboys football depth chart would look like if the team played a game right now. This does not factor in any freshmen, newcomers, or recently announced and to-be-announced transfers. This takes in only the players that participated or were injured through spring football. ESPN released one and we wanted to get our say (we think is better) out there.
2 Mason Rudolph, 6-5, 235, Jr., Rock Hill (Northwestern), S.C. - Unquestioned and better than ever.
14 Taylor Cornelius, 6-6, 220, RS-So., Bushland, Texas - Is the best bet behind Rudolph and improved each day in the spring.
9 John Kolar, 6-4, 200, RD-Fr., Norman (North), Okla. - Excellent run threat but needs more time in the throwing game.
32 Chris Carson, 6-1, 215, Sr., Lilburn (Parkview), Ga./Butler Co. C.C., Kan. - Improved and a tick faster this spring.
