Oklahoma State football made a huge turnaround starting in 2001, leading to an emergence of respect on the national scene that hadn't been felt in Stillwater since the late 1980s.
I've decided to go back and look at some of the biggest players for the Cowboys in the past decade and rank who I thought were worthy of earning "Top 10" status. Keep in mind that, for this list, I left off both offensive and defensive linemen, mainly due to how difficult it is to measure them quantitatively, despite how good they were. Even the defensive line does a lot of things that aren't measured on stat sheets.
Guys like Nathan Peterson and Russell Okung both could have easily been on here, I just chose not to.
So here are your Top 10 Oklahoma State football players of the the 2000's.
