It is always important to have depth on the offensive line, and today we see some of that depth with another fifth year senior.

Mark Stickford - Sr. (5)

Carmel, IN (Carmel HS)

6’5”, 305 pounds

Offensive Line

2021 Projection: Possible starter

During his time at Purdue Stickford has been all over the place. He has been a three-time academic all-Big Ten selection, but the only year he has seen the field was in 2019. In that year he played 10 games and made eight starts. This was after a solid career at Carmel where he won a Class 6A state championship.

As a fifth year player, however, there are expectations, and this year Stickford should be a player that, at minimum, is counted on for depth. He can be a quality reserve with starting experience and he can fill it at guard or tackle as necessary. That makes him a valuable player to have.
