What Oklahoma loses: Donald Stephenson was honorable mention All-Big 12 as a senior. He was durable, dependable and consistent, allowing the offensive coaching staff to have confidence he would hold his own and allow Landry Jones to operate from the pocket for the majority of the game.

Replacing Stephenson, particularly his durability and consistency, won’t be easy.
