What others say:  Oregon State offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh - "He's an intelligent guy.  You don't have to tell Andy Levitre anything twice. That's what the great ones do. It's his great work ethic and athletic ability. He has all the tools you are looking for - feet, balance, power. He's a real athletic guy for a big fella."

Career synopsis:  The 6-foot-3, 317-pound offensive lineman did a little bit of everything during his career at Oregon State, starting out at guard before moving to tackle.

He shined brightest his senior year, earning first team All-Pac-10 and first team All-American honors by several publications.  One of the most technically sound offensive lineman in school history he capped his OSU career with 35 consecutive starts.

Levitre, a co-team captain in '08, was a rock on the left side of the line and ends his time in Corvallis as one of the most decorated offensive lineman in Oregon State football annals.

OSU offensive line coach Mike Cavanaugh says he is the best lineman he has ever coached and if there is one player that young offensive lineman should pattern their game after it is Levitre's.

Career statistics: 39 career starts, 35 consecutive

Runner up:  Adam Koets (2002-06) - A second team All-Pac-10 pick as a senior he started 36 straight games.
