With only 4 days left until Oregon State starts fall camp, we are counting down by previewing the 25 most valuable football players that will help lead the Beavers to a successful 2016 season. We'll count-down by highlighting a new player each day until fall camp starts. To follow-up from yesterday's selection of wide receiver Victor Bolden Jr., today’s pick goes to senior left tackle Sean Harlow.

#4 Sean Harlow - Left Tackle

At 6’ 4", 300 pounds, Oregon State left tackle Sean Harlow is the highest rated offensive lineman on the list of "Most Valuable Players For 2016" heading into Fall Camp and with some good reason. Harlow is one big, mean, earth-moving machine.

The San Clemente, California native was a three-star recruit who originally committed to the University of Washington in high school but flipped his decision to the Beavers during his senior campaign. Four years later, the road-grinder has a chance to not only lead Oregon State out of the Pac-12 cellar but also to roll his abilities over to an NFL career.

Early 2017 NFL Draft boards from CBS Sports have Harlow rated as a top five offensive guard prospect in the draft, as the Beavers’ star will likely have to move to the interior part of the line at the next level due to his pedestrian height. Until then, Harlow will be tasked with being the chief anchor on an offensive line that is hoping to be an improved unit.

Individually, Harlow is one of those players that checks just about every characteristic off as a lineman, from natural strength and toughness to technical ability at the point of attack. While Harlow shines more in pass-game protection, a trait that should pay dividends again in 2016, his improved run-blocking technique cannot go unnoticed as well. Harlow has quietly developed himself into the total package during his time in Corvallis.

Our "Fall Camp Countdown" continues tomorrow with the #3 Most Valuable Player for the Beavers in 2016.
