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

It's time for Christian Daimler to see his first action at right tackle

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. 70 – OL Christian Daimler (6-foot-7, 311 pounds)


What happened last year: Daimler has not played in two years after taking a redshirt as a true freshman.

Level of importance for Sooners (1-10): 3. Suddenly though, he’s thrust into importance as the Sooners primary back-up at right tackle. He’d likely be just a holdover if needed, and there’s a chance the player following him on this countdown would play right tackle full time if starter Dru Samia went down.

Best-case scenario for this season: Daimler will see some action, and it won’t be because of injury. It’s clearly a moment for which he has been waiting. Soaking it up will be the best case for this season.
