Spring practice is the beginning of a football team's long journey towards what is, hopefully, a BCS bowl game.
This period can make or break a program's chances at competing during the fall, and that's why head coaches like Mike Gundy put so much stock in how a player performs.
In fact, just last year, Wes Lunt won the starting quarterback spot, largely due to his performance in spring practices.
Can someone else step up for the Oklahoma State Cowboys and win himself a starting spot?
Only time will tell, but the following five players could become that guy, if they step up and have a huge spring.
