Sooners Illustrated breaks down the Oklahoma roster, one player at a time

Depth cornerback likely won't find the rotation but a special teams star is within reach

During the next two months leading up to the Big 12 Media Days in Dallas, Sooners Illustrated will breakdown the Oklahoma Sooners roster, starting with Jarvis Baxter (No. 1 on the roster) and working all the way down to Marquise Overton (No. 98) and the incoming freshmen.

We’ll look at last year’s performance, the best-case scenario for this season – without projecting injuries – and what each player means to the short-term or long-term success of the Sooners.

No. 6 – CB Stanvon Taylor (5-foot-11, 167 pounds)

3 tackles


What happened last year: Taylor was a special teams depth player, who saw very limited action and was injured for most of the season.

Level of importance for Sooners (1-10): 1. There aren’t very many expectations of Taylor at this point in his career. Anything he can contribute is a plus.

Best-case scenario for this season: One big play at a key moment could change things for Taylor. He wouldn’t earn playing time because of it, but a big punt block or key tackle is about all the stardom that Taylor could hope for on the game field.
