Movers and Shakers: Defense

The strength of the Beavers is their defense and fall camp did not prove otherwise. <br><br> takes a look at who has had the best fall camp so far on the defensive side of the ball.

#21 Chaz Scott (6-2, 222, JR) – Keith Ellison was l supposed to push Scott for his starting job, but that talk quickly died…Scott is quick to the ball and an excellent tackler…there seems to be at least one linebacker overlooked each year at OSU and Scott is that man this year…an all-conference player in wait.

#97 Ben Siegert (6-4, 271, SO) – Coming off shoulder surgery can be tough for anyone, but especially tough for a defensive tackle…Seigert is playing at almost 100-percent and looks great clogging the middle.

#24 Sabby Piscitelli (6-3, 217, SO) – Reacting to the ball well and looking quick on an already fast team…embracing his role as a starter…has the skills to lay down the big hit and get the defense thinking about him.

#27 Joe Lemma (6-3, 252, SO) – Forced into playing with the first team due to Brandon Scales absence and has performed well…pesky, quick and never gives up…he will start versus LSU.

#19 Sam Paulescu (5-11, 187 JR) – Impressive from the beginning booming punts high and long…has a great head on his shoulders and is looking forward to Baton Rouge.

#7 Lamar Herron (6-0, 195, FR) – Looks the most comfortable returning kickoffs and has the skills to be a playmaker…could provide the Beavers with a consistent threat to break a big one on kickoffs.

#2 Brandon Browner (6-4, 215, SO) – Looks like there will be no sophomore slump for Browner…he has bulked up and improved his technique…one of the premier corners in the nation.

#90 Bill Swancutt (6-4,, 259, SR) – Dominating in fall camp having his way with almost any lineman…stronger then last year…also added more moves to his repertoire.
