The Oklahoma Sooners have been an absolute offensive powerhouse in recent seasons, producing back-to-back Heisman winners and first overall picks, plus numerous playmakers. One of the most recent prolific athletes to make a name for himself in the Oklahoma system was wide receiver CeeDee Lamb.

Lamb totaled 1,327 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns last season. He averaged 21.4 yards per reception, putting him as one of the most explosive playmakers in the entire country. This put him on the radar of many NFL teams, but it ultimately was the Dallas Cowboys that selected him in the first round. But with Lamb gone, who will step up for the Sooners?

In walks Charleston Rambo. Aside from the killer name, Rambo is the top candidate to replace the production left by Lamb. He has the speed that we have seen recently in this Sooners offense, from Lamb, Marquise Brown, Sterling Shepard and Dede Westbrook. Rambo just looks to be the next man up.

While he was over shadowed by Lamb last season, Rambo was still a valuable part of this offense and proved he is more than capable of stepping him. He finished second on the team in receiving yards (743), receiving touchdowns (5), receptions (43) and yards per reception (17.3) among qualified players.

This looks to be an incredibly young Oklahoma offense next season, with no seniors projected to start. With Jalen Hurts entering the NFL Draft, redshirt freshman Tanner Mordecai is expected to win the starting quarterback job. He completed 61.5 percent of his passes in limited action last season.

Aside from Rambo as the starting Z receiver, redshirt junior Mykel Jones is expected to start in the slot for the Sooners. At the starting X spot will be true freshman Theo Wease. The freshman is a five-star recruit out of Allen, TX, standing at 6-foot-3.

Returning to the skill position group is redshirt sophomore running back Kennedy Brooks, who ran for 1,011 yards and six touchdowns last season. He will run behind a line made up of four redshirt sophomores and a redshirt freshman.

While this offense will be very young and relatively inexperienced, they have playmakers all over the field, headlined by Rambo. And given Lincoln Riley's history, there's little doubt he will get the most out of this team.
