These are the prospects that will redshirt but be significant contributors their redshirt freshman year. On the other hand, several of these players may not redshirt and play a significant part on special teams or solidify the depth chart.

OL Timi Oshinowo - Slated to play at tackle the coaching staff expects big things from this all-area player. Much like his counterparts he is mobile, aggressive and loves to knock his opponents on their posteriors.

LB Dwight Roberson - Tough and physical this 6-foot, 210-pound athlete could play his freshman year. Mark Banker says he is a "man amongst boys" and many people agree he will be an All-Pac-10 player in a few years.

LB/DL Tom Hansen - A physical specimen, Hansen is slated to put his hand down at defensive end. Strong and explosive he is only going to get better after entering a college weight training program.

LB/DL Keaton Kristick - Lanky and fast Kristick could lineup at either defensive end or linebacker. The coaches are already singing his praises and he may get a shot at early playing time.

ATH James Dockery - The staff is already fighting over this playmaker.  He could end up on either side of the ball and whichever side that is, expect big things.

ATH Casey Kjos - A jack of all trades with excellent football knowledge this all-conference player could could carry on the tradition of heady safeties at Oregon State.

TE/DE John Reese - OSU was the only school to offer Reese the opportunity to play on offense and he has a good shot to play as a freshman. He excels at blocking but is also adept at catching the pigskin.

TE/DE Howard Croom (case file)- A multi-talented player who will pack on a lot of muscle. Very competitive and could end up on one of the lines.

OL/DL Alex Linnenkohl - Athletic enough to play on special teams and versatile enough to handle long snapping. Linnenkohl projects at center and loves the coaching staff.

 

Next up - the sleepers.

Previous - the cream of the crop
