#27 Trent Moore - Offensive Lineman

One of the biggest question marks headed into the 2017 season is the offensive line. Oregon State is looking to replace three graduated starters, all of whom are getting a chance in the NFL: Sean Harlow (Atlanta Falcons), Gavin Andrews (Buffalo Bills) and Dustin Stanton (Cincinnati Bengals). The Beavers still have the pieces to be successful, but they will have to come together quickly.

Trent Moore is currently slotted as the Beavers starting right tackle. The rest of the starting offensive line is shaping up to be: Blake Brandel (LT), Gus Lavaka (LG), Sumner Houston (C), Fred Lauina (RG) and of course Trent Moore (RT). Moore will face plenty of competition though, in junior college transfers Justin Sattelmaier and Clay Cordasco.

Trent Moore (6’4) is smaller than Sattelmaier (6’7) and Cordasco (6’6), but has a much stronger grasp on Oregon State’s blocking schemes and system. Moore’s athleticism and veteran presence should fit in nicely to start the season and I anticipate that Moore will play a big role in 2017.

Regardless of who is named the opening day starter, expect all the players listed to make an impact along with Yanni Demogerontas, Kammy Delp and possibly Keli'i Montibon. Yet, with less than a one month until the Beavers take the field, there’s loads of work still to be done with this relatively unproven group. If Oregon State wants to have a successful season and fully utilize their talented running backs then the offensive line will need to come together as soon as possible.
