OSU in the NFL: 2021 Draft recap
Another NFL Draft has come and gone and Oklahoma State has four new draftees entering the league with several more signing UDFA contracts. Each player is entering a new and unique situation that will shape their pro careers Myles Williams Jersey. With that being said, the depth chart per position per team for each of OSU new draftees could have a significant impact on how much each player might see the field next season. Let's look at each situationTeven Jenkins, Chicago Bears We believe it.of discusses the talented Coach Gundy had high praise for the Chicago Bears selection of Teven Jenkins at No. 39 overall. The Bears decided to go with highly regarded Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields in round one so following that pick up with offensive line protection for the new face-of-the-franchise was a good move.The Bears offensive line play struggled in 2020 according to BearReport.com, Chicago's 247sports website, and addressed those needs in the draft by moving up to select Jenkins in round two and selecting Missouri offensive tackle Larry Borom in the fifth round. ESPN has already slotted Jenkins into the starting left tackle spot and that doesn't come as much of a surprise. That same depth chart projection is a fairly conservative one as well; it has Fields as the second-string quarterback behind Andy Dalton.Jenkins should see plenty of playing time and a starting role for most or all of 2021 for a Chicago offensive line that struggled a season ago. Of note, former Cowboy Arlington Hambright also plays for the Bears and is listed by ESPN as a third-string left guard. Hambright was drafted by the Bears in the seventh round of the 2020 draft out of Colorado, where he grad-transferred to after two years in Stillwater.Chuba Hubbard, Carolina PanthersCount another offensive pick for 2021 Listen in on the call Add in Bateman and Wallace to a team that already employs Sammy Watkins and it is easy to see the Ravens have no true No. 1 receiver The New York Giants selected Rodarius Williams two picks behind where Tom Brady was selected in 200The OSU-to-Pittsburgh pipeline continues! Hopefully Bundage will get to join former teammates Mason Rudolph and James Washington in Pittsburgh full time. Pittsburgh utilizes a 3-4 linebacker-heavy scheme that should give Bundage a decent chance to make the roster. ESPN already has him slotted in as a third-stringer, on par with Wallace in Baltimore. The Steelers selected two other linebackers in this draft as well Los Angeles will give Amen Ogbongbemiga his first shot, but it won't be his last shot no matter what.Ogbongbemiga agreed to terms with the Chargers but if things don't work out, Stillwater's other favorite Canadian will have the option to play with the Calgary Stampeders of the CFL after he was selected eighth overall in the CFL Draft.The newest in the barn! Welcome to the squad Craig Woodson Jersey, Amen Ogbongbemiga (#CFLDraft | But first Dah Ray-Dahs! After going undrafted, Dillon Stoner shocked everyone by not signing with the Patriots and instead signed with the Las Vegas Raiders.This is an excellent decision by Stoner on multiple levels. Firstly, the Raiders did not draft a single wide receiver despite losing its top non-tight end receiving target in Nelson Agholor. The leading receiver last season was tight end Darren Waller, the Raiders only 1,000-yard receiver last season. With Agholor leaving, the leading returning true receiver is former Clemson standout Hunter Renfrow, who, at 5-foot-10 and 185 pounds, is very similar in size to Stoner. Other than Renfrow, the Raiders employ 2020 first rounder and former Alabama speedster Henry Ruggs III to form a solid young one-two punch with Renfrow. The third starting receiver is Bryan Edwards, who caught just 11 passes last season. That's followed by John Brown To round out the Oklahoma State UDFA signings Jake Tonges Jersey, we have Cameron Murray heading to Arizona. Arizona drafted no defensive tackles and just one defensive linemanDuke's Victor Dimukeje in round sixwho currently slots in as a third-stringer. The Cardinals also run a 3-4 defense, so this means less spots on the defensive line. Arizona is currently four-deep on defensive ends at each side and has just two nose tackles, presumably what Murray will play in the desert.The roster would suggest Murray may have a chance if Arizona determines it needs three nose tackles, but they may pass on that with 10 defensive lineman currently on the roster for three spots. Still, anything can happen in training camp and Murray could have a chance to earn a spot if he impresses.Regardless of how much playing time or if these players make the final 53-man roster, it is a dream just to make it to this point. Wishing all the best for each of these pro Cowboys as they embark on their NFL careers!
