The Atlanta Falcons have selected Oregon State offensive lineman, Sean Harlow, with the 136 pick of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Former Oregon State captain and anchor of the offensive line, Sean Harlow, is following in is fathers footsteps and taking the leap to the NFL. Sean Harlow is the son of former All-American and NFL first round pick, Pat Harlow. Harlow brings a unique blend of versatility, toughness and leadership to the Falcons. Harlow will join fellow OSU alums Andy Levitre and Terron Ward in Atlanta.

Sean Harlow has been a mainstay for the Oregon State offensive line ever since he was thrust into action as a freshman. Prior to his senior season he was chosen as a team captain despite rehabbing an injured ankle that cast a shadow over his availability. The staff contemplated using a redshirt on Harlow, but instead he forced his way onto the field after week 4 and completely revamped the Beavers struggling offensive line. Harlow helped spring the Beavers rushing attack to a school record 5.2 yards per carry, on the season. Harlow received an invitation to participate in the East-West Shrine Game and NFL Scouting Combine after the season. Read more about his combine numbers and his accomplishments while he was at Oregon State here.

While Harlow manned the left tackle position for Oregon State he is expected to bump inside at the next level. He has relatively short arms for an NFL offensive lineman but will be a valuable lineman with the ability to play either guard or center. Look for Harlow to continue to impress the Falcons with his toughness, leadership and competitive spirit.
