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. 19 – WR Dallis Todd (6-foot-3, 190 pounds)
1 reception, 9 yards
What happened last year: In his first season on the field, Todd was a bit of a no-show. Regarded by some as a potential contributor, Todd had just one catch. His play count wasn’t anything special either, leading some to believe that he’s tumbling down the depth chart.
Level of importance for Sooners (1-10): 4. Todd is another depth receiver who has yet to make that jump at the college level. He’s an impressive prospect – big, solid speed and skilled – but he has yet to put it all together. Todd isn’t going to be counted on for any significant production on the outside.
Best-case scenario for this season: Anything that Todd gives to the Sooners will be a bonus. It’s possible that in his third year on campus, Todd finally works his way into the rotation. The receiver core doesn’t have the obvious hierarchy that it had in the past, so Todd could play his way into an immediate back-up role – maybe even right behind Dede Westbrook. He’ll have to prove that he’s capable of that first, though.
