Big 12 tandems: Stewart, Moore give Oklahoma State firepower


This is the second in a series looking at the best position tandems in the Big 12, taking into account both college production and pro potential. Today it is the best pair of wide receivers in the conference.

The best: Oklahoma State

The duo: Josh Stewart and Tracy Moore

The reasoning: No one will mistake Stewart and Moore with former Oklahoma State standouts Dez Bryant or Justin Blackmon just yet, but they still get the nod entering a less than vintage year for Big 12 receivers.

Stewart returns the most receptions (101) and receiving yards (1,210) from last season of any player in the conference, and should benefit from greater stability at quarterback. Stewart doesn't have elite measurables, but understands the essence of the Oklahoma State offense perfectly.

Now, the athletic gifts in Stillwater rest with redshirt senior Moore, who missed most of last season with an ankle injury. Moore was terrifically effective working between the hashes as the No. 3 option behind Blackmon and Josh Cooper in 2011, totaling 45 catches for 672 receiving yards and four touchdowns. At 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, Moore can be a physical presence, which is not a surprise considering his father, Tracy, played in the NBA for several years.
