What others say:  Oregon State offneisve line coach Mike Cavanaugh - "Jeremy can be as good as I've ever had. What separates him is he is a real nasty guy on the field, as tough as them come, but all smiles off the field. He has the tools to do it all. He is a good run blocker and has great ability in pass protection."

Career synopsis:  Downright filthy.  That is a perfect phrase describing Jeremy Perry's game.

The aggressive offensive lineman was one of the nastiness offensive lineman to ever play for Oregon State.  He possessed it all.  Strength, speed, athleticism and that killer instinct to punish his opposition into the ground each and every play.

Perry started on the offensive line as a redshirt freshman, just one of three redshirt or true freshman to start on the offensive line during the Mike Riley era, earning Pac-10 Co-Freshman of the Year and first team honors.

Following his stellar redshirt freshman campaign he again landed himself on the the first team all conference squad as a sophomore and was destined to be a first round pick in the NFL draft.

But disaster struck late in 2006 when he was broke his leg late in a game against Hawaii.  He rehabbed, but reinjured his leg early in 2007 and unfortunately never returned.

If he could have stayed healthy Perry would have become the most dominant lineman in school history.

Career statistics: 26 career starts

Runner up: Adam Speer (2005-08) - A second team All-pac-10 pick in 2008 Speer quietly started 26 games, including 25 straight, while staying healthy for most of his career.
