CFN's Top 200 for '06

College Football News has released their list of the Top 200 college football players for the upcoming season. Three Beavers cracked the list of 200:

88. RB Yvenson Bernard, Jr. Oregon State Bernard single-handedly solved the team's rushing woes after fielding one of the worst ground attacks in 2004. The smallish, quick back is a Ken Simonton clone who turned into a surprisingly durable workhorse highlighted by a 42-carry game against Cal. He ran for over 100 yards in six of the final eight games and was a steady scorer with two scores in four straight games over the middle of the season. He's also a terrific receiver finishing fourth on the team incatches.

Yvenson was the only Beaver in the Top 100, so he was the only one to get a nifty little paragraph. But that doesn't mean we should forget about the others:

  • 140. S Sabby Piscitelli, Sr. Oregon State
  • 196. TE Joe Newton, Sr. Oregon State

Eh, I think both Sabby and Joe are under-rated. I expect Joe to be within the top 5 Tight Ends in the country at the end of this season. Same with Sabby.

Also, OSU kicker Alexis Serna will be high in the ranks for his position.

Go Beavers!
