Mike Gundy and the Oklahoma State Cowboys will have to replace a ton of experience on both sides of the ball. The inexperience led Gundy to cancel the annual spring game. Instead, Gundy ran a controlled scrimmage so the coaches could continue to work with the younger players. With all the youth on the roster, keep an eye on these five players during the 2014 season.
Jimmy Bean provides experience along the defensive line. He started every game last season as a sophomore, and he closed out the 2013 campaign with a big game against the Missouri Tigers in the AT&T Cotton Bowl. He registered seven tackles against the Tigers and will be an anchor on the defensive line.
Oklahoma State lost two key players from the linebacking group of last season. This gives Ryan Simmons the opportunity to fill the void. Simmons will shift inside after playing as an outside linebacker last season. He should build upon his 67 tackles last year and become a key run stopper.
Jhajuan Seales looks to follow in the footsteps of Dez Bryant and Justin Blackmon as Cowboys legends. Seales was third on the team in receptions last year. With three of the top four pass catchers moving on, Seales is poised to become the next great Oklahoma State receiver.
Shutdown corner Justin Gilbert has moved on to the NFL, and Oklahoma State will look to Kevin Peterson to fill that role this season. Peterson had two interceptions last season, but look for that number to go up in 2014.
Tyreek Hill is one of the top junior college players in the country. He is also a track star, placing fifth in the 200 at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Gundy will find a way to get the talented Hill on the field. He could be one of the Big 12's most electrifying players on offense.
