Oregon State

 Name Pos # Yr Rnd Comments
Adam Koets T 61 5Sr 6/7
Underrated pass blocker with solid feet.  Needs to improve his run blocking strength yet a solid developmental prospect.
Josh Linehan G 69 5Sr FA Hard working, over-achiever who could make it as an inexpensive back-up.
Matt Moore QB 8 5Sr FA
Undersized passer coming off a solid year.  Offers some growth potential and should get practice squad consideration.
Joe Newton TE 89 5Sr 5/6
Reliable tight end with a complete game.  Not a downfield pass catching threat but a solid number two at his position.
Sabby Piscitelli S 24 5Sr 6/7 A first day talent who does not play to his level of ability.  Tremendous athlete who looks imposing on the field. 
Roy Schuening G 67 4Jr 6/7 Strong, small area blocker.
Ben Siegert DT 97 5Sr FA Hard working interior lineman with marginal size and durability.

Marcus Bacon OLB 15 5Sr 7th Productive college linebacker effective against the run and pass.  Built more like a safety but could find a way onto the weak side.
Joel Clinger T 74 5Sr FA Nice sized blocker limited to a very small area.
Brad Ekwerekwu WR 86 4Sr 6/7 Big receiver with enticing size/speed numbers.  Marginally productive in college and never took his game to the next level.
Dedrick Harrington ILB 33 5Sr 7th In the box linebacker with good size.
Xzavie Jackson DE 48 4Sr 7th
Speedy edge rusher who consistently makes plays behind the line.  Potential two-gap end.
David Overstreet S 8 5Sr 7th Tough, run defending safety with a special teams attitude.
Martin Rucker TE 82 4Jr 5/6 Athletic pass catcher seemingly lost in the mix the past two seasons.
Jamar Smith DE 92 4Sr FA Short, interior defender with potential as a three technique lineman.
Brian Smith OLB 39 5Sr 5/6 Productive college defensive end who projects to rush/outside linebacker in a 3-4.  On the sidelines with a hip injury.  Needs to run well prior to the draft or he will drop.
