What others say:  ESPN's Ivan Maisel - "Roy Schuening has been a model of consistent play.  In a year where few guards have grabbed the attention of NFL scouts; Schuening has grabbed it week after week after week."

Career synopsis:  One of the more versatile offensive lineman this decade Roy Schuening played both guard and tackle moving between the two spots seamlessly.

The Oregon native is just one of three redshirt or true freshman to start on the offensive line during the Mike Riley era.

Back in 2004 senior center Matt Brock said, "I have never seen a freshman offensive lineman so technically sound.  Roy is going to be real good."

Brock's words proved to be prophetic.

Battling through sickness and injuries on multiple occasions Schuening started a school record 50 consecutive games.

He was a honorable mention all conference selection as a sophomore and junior before being named a first team pick as a senior.  He was also named an All-American by ESPN and Pro Football Weekly.

Others worth mentioning: Kanan Sanchez (2001-2003)
