NORMAN, Okla. — One of the biggest questions for the Oklahoma State football team is how to replace a wide receiver drafted in the top 10 of the NFL Draft.

But for OSU wide receivers coach Kasey Dunn, he wants it to be a group effort in producing the numbers Justin Blackmon had the past two years.

"The big thing for us at the position is making sure that everybody understands they’ve got to pick up their slack a little bit," Dunn said.

Dunn didn't shy away, however, from he thinks should be the closest thing to Blackmon for the upcoming season — Tracy Moore.

"He needs to be that go-to guy for us on third down. That’s what I’d like him to be – somebody we can rely on. Somebody that in crunch time, it’s ‘let’s call Tracy’s number’, like we did with Blackmon," Dunn said. "He doesn’t need to come out of every game with 10 catches. I’m sure he’d love to have that, but the reality is that Isaiah Anderson on the other side of the ball has to pick up the slack a little bit."
