  Draft Scout by Conference

  Mike Gundy has said many times while working with young quarterbacks at Oklahoma State that it takes a few years of starting experience before the athlete truly grasps the concepts of college football. And with 20 games now under his belt, Spencer Sanders is approaching that level for the Cowboys. And according to his head coach, the Denton, Texas, product has already shown signs of doing just that this offseason. "We've been very impressed and excited about Spencer's development. My personal opinion is last year the spring ball that he missed and summer conditioning because of COVID set him back," Gundy said. "And I feel like in the two months that we watched him over spring ball, he's developed more than he has in two years. "So, we'll find out once the season starts. There's never been a question with his toughness, his commitment and his competitive nature." His competitive nature is something Gundy has worked to harness over the past few years.

At times in the past, Sanders would turn his passion to compete into compounding mistakes - driven by trying make up for a previous mistake, only leading to another. That was most evident in his first season as the starting signal caller when he turned the ball over five times in a loss at Texas Tech. But it's finding that balance between making a play to help the team vs. making a play that hurts the team. "He makes plays out here," Gundy said. "The defense makes plays against him, too, which is good. So I just feel like he's in a good spot. Is he gonna make mistakes? Sure he is. Sometimes, will he fire one to the wrong team? Sure he will, just like Mason (Rudolph) did." - Stillwater Press
