OU post-camp depth chart: Offense

Quarterback is settled as is offensive line for the Sooners

Down to just days until the season opener, and as is usually the custom, Oklahoma will release its official two-deep depth chart Monday.

Before that happens, here’s one last guess at what it might look like:

Offense first

Quarterback

Baker Mayfield, Trevor Knight, Cody Thomas

Why? That’s what Bob Stoops said.

Running backs

Samaje Perine (18-20 approximate touches per game), Joe Mixon (11-13), Rodney Anderson (7-9), Alex Ross (1-2), Daniel Brooks (4-6)

Why? Perine and Mixon are obviously the top two on the list. Inside of the normal offense, I think Brooks gets more touches than Ross, but Ross makes a start before Brooks does. Anderson looks like he’s played his way in to some early-season playing time.

Inside receivers

Sterling Shepard, Michiah Quick

Mark Andrews, Carson Meier

Why?Top 2 are pretty clear. Next two are just about as clear. Thinking the coaching staff might want to see Quick step up a little more behind Shepard.

Outside receivers

Dede Westbrook, Durron Neal, AD Miller

Jeffery Mead, Dahu Green, Dallis Todd

Why? Starters aren’t really a surprise. I think Green has played his way ahead of Todd, who we have heard nothing about on a consistent basis. Think Miller has the chance of being a quick hook for Neal, if Neal doesn’t perform.

Offensive line

LT:Orlando Brown, Josiah St. John, Dru Samia

LG: Jonathan Alvarez, Jamal Danley

C: Ty Darlington, Alex Dalton

RG: Nila Kasitati, Joseph Paul

RT: Josiah St. John, Derek Farniok, Dru Samia

Why? Brown seems like the clear starter with St. John moving over to right. St. John will move back to left, if Brown misses time. Alvarez has pretty much solidified himself at left guard. The other two aren’t really questions.

Kicker

Austin Seibert, Nick Hodgson

Why? When the No. 1 kicker in the country comes in as a freshman and then gets “better every day,” that says something.
