Let’s take a look at Oklahoma State as they have 16 players listed on the CBS Draft Board with three players projected to be drafted from round one to round seven.

Their highest rated player is cornerback Justin Gilbert (6-0, 200 pounds) being rated as the third highest cornerback in the 2014 Draft and 29th overall rated player. He’s projected to be selected in the first or second round.

But the player I want to profile is defensive tackle Calvin Barnett, who is slated to be selected in the draft in the third or fourth round.

Barnett (6-2, 300 pounds) is the 11th rated defensive tackle on the list. He’s been timed with a 5.06 40-yard dash and was Associated Press All-Big 12 first team this season.

On his CBS Draft page is says:

“Barnett was a force for the Cowboys in the trenches as a senior, notching 26 tackles, including four for loss, as well as a pair of sacks, five quarterback hurries and a forced fumble.”

Those are nice numbers for a defensive tackle in the Big 12. He seems to have a good build for the position and why wouldn’t the Texans look to sure up their defensive line this offseason?
