Sunday we brought you the first 5 rounds of our OSU all time football draft. Now we bring you rounds 6-14.
Ross- Steve Brown-I turned back the clock and snagged the all-time leading tackler in Oregon State history for my leader of the defense. Brown will bring serious nastiness to my LB group.
Travis- Jeremy Perry- Given that injuries do not come into play, JP is one of the best O-linemen out there. When healthy he dominated the opponent and had that nasty streak that you want in an offensive linemen. Before injuries derailed his career, many thought he would be an early round NFL draft pick.
Leo - Sean Harlow - I figured Jackson would need some holes and Mannion some protection, so I wanted to be sure to get my offensive line solidified before everyone else. I thought Harlow would be a logical choice after getting Seumalo as he was a four year starter at the tackle position. His worth was demonstrated his senior year after breaking his leg the previous year. Going into his final season he was still rehabbing and the team had to play the first three games without him. After he was plugged in at left tackle, he helped lead an offensive line that went on to set a program record 5.2 yards per carry.
Marcus- Nick Barnett - The three-year starter had his best season as a senior when he racked up 121 tackles for Oregon State. The strong side linebacker certain edge and just the right amount of nastiness. He was a first round NFL draft pick in 2003, he played 11 years in the league and won a super bowl with the Packers.
Marcus- Sabby Piscitelli - Played for the Beavers from 2004-07 and was a first-team all-Pac-10 selection as a senior. Later he was drafted in the second round of the NFL draft by the Buccaneers. Sabby was a stud safety, but his WWE career is also awesome.
Leo - Richard Siegler - Siegler was a FORTY-NINE game career starter at linebacker for the Beavers in the early 2000s, including the famous Fiesta Bowl season (when he was a freshman). He was a first team All-Pac 12 member twice and once racked up seven tackles for a loss in a single game.
Travis- Keenan Lewis- A 2 star recruit, LewLew was a 4 year contributor who developed into one of the best corners to come through the valley football center. He nabbed 7 interceptions his last two season on campus before heading to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Ross- Treston Decoud-Decoud was a shutdown CB in his time with the Beavs. Having this lengthy corner in my secondary can give the other guys serious problems when trying to pass to Decoud’s side of the field.
Ross-Marcus Wheaton- I’ve reunited the Cookie Monster and Wheat Thins! Adding the electric playmaker Wheaton to my roster with Cooks gives me 2 dynamic WR threats for my offense.
Travis- Derrick Doggett- D-Dogg was an absolute playmaker at LB. 8 career interceptions, 3 TD’s, 8 sacks and a boatload of tackles during his tenure in orange and black.
Leo - James Newson - With James Rodgers on one side, I figured I would need a guy that could go for jump balls on the other. The former first team All Pac-12 wide receiver was a favorite target of of Derek Anderson’s during his tenure and I’m sure would get along just fine with Mannion.
Marcus- Jess Lewis - Lewis is said to be one of the greatest athletes in Oregon State history. The defensive lineman’s signature play came when he caught USC tailback O.J. Simpson from behind to prevent a touchdown and preserve the Beavers’ 3-0 win over the top-ranked Trojans in 1967.
Marcus- Keaton Kristick - The linebacker played for OSU from 2006-09. He was a tackling machine and was a leader of the defense. He also has a YouTube video that calls him out for being a “dirty player” so you know he makes my team.
Leo - Brandon Browner - After spending six of my first eight picks on offense, I figured I better start filling in the defense. So I sprung for Brandon Browner next who was a rather large (6’4’’) shutdown corner. Unfortunately he only played two years for the Beaver, leaving after his redshirt sophomore year to head to the pros. I don’t blame him though, teams pretty much stopped throwing to him his final year after intercepting six balls as a freshman.
Travis - Keith Ellison- I had eyes on Jess Lewis, but Marcus snagged that one, so I went with the former JUCO transfer and stud LB Keith Ellison. His two years at Oregon State saw him disrupt the backfield and drive offenses crazy. His senior season alone he racked up 5 sacks, 14.5 tackles for a loss, and a pick. Opposing O-Lines better gameplan how to slow this guy down.
Ross- Mitch Meeuwsen- I came right back to my secondary and locked down the all-time leading interception leader in Meeuwsen. Meeuwsen is an awesome safety that has to be respected by an offense any time he steps on the field.
Ross- Gavin Andrews-Andrews anchored the interior of the Beavs offensive line over 22 career starts over 4 different of the O-line positions. The Beavs averaged 5.2 YPC with Andrews on the line. Combine that with my earlier pick of Simonton and Levitre? This running game is already looking DAM good (pun intended).
Travis- Tim Euhus- I kept waiting for someone to snag a Tight End, but I couldn’t wait any longer. I was surprised I was still able to get the best OSU tight end of the modern era. A touchdown machine his senior season is going to help open up things for my receivers and Quizz to make problems for opposing defenses
Leo- Dennis Weathersby - Since I had Browner, I figure’d why not solidify the other corner position. Weathersby was a two time first Pac-12 selection, started 45 games, and broke up 62 passes! He was a crucial member of the Fiesta Bowl team as a sophomore.
Marcus- Alexis Serna - What? A kicker round 10?? Serna is the best placekicker in Oregon State history. Many remember his kicking gaffes as a freshman that cost us that game against LSU, but the record books are covered with Serna’s name. I’ll always be impressed by his ability to move on and excel after his college career started off so utterly horrifying.
Marcus- Johnny Hekker - With my back-to-back picks I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to grab the best specialists in Oregon State history. Hekker wasn’t always the pro-bowler mainstay/punting master that Beaver fans know and love today. But he was still the best punter to come through Corvallis and if things don’t work out with Terry Baker I’m confident Hekker could win some games with his arm.
Leo - Delawrence Grant - Grant anchored the defensive line on the Fiesta bowl team and was a pain in tackles’ sides with his speed off the edge.
Travis- Victor Butler- An absolute sack machine, who racked up 26 QB takedowns during his OSU career, including nearly one a game his final season. Butler, who has carved out a nice career in the CFL, gives me a pass rushing specialist who can also line up at LB for a 3-4 look if needed.
Ross- James Dockery-I return to my secondary and throw another good OSU CB in Dockery. Dockery received Pac-10 honorable mention in his final year at OSU, and gives me a rock solid CB duo with him and Decoud.
Ross- Ryan Nall-WRECKING NALL IS MINE. In all seriousness, I mix it up from some of the other guys and go with a 2 RB offense. Nall was a dynamic playmaker for the Beavs and pairing him with Simonton gives me a dynamic backfield that can do anything asked of them.
Travis- Reggie Tongue-Played bit corner and safety at OSU but I will employ him at safety which is where his career really took off. I get myself another ball hawk who tied a pac-10 record with 4 interceptions returned for touchdowns. He finished his OSU career with 9 interceptions, 362 tackles and was named to the 2nd team all-pac-10 team in 1994 and the 1st team in 1995
Leo - Roy Schuening - Schuening started 50 career games (which I believe is the school record still?) and eventually made the Pac-12 first team his final year. My offensive line is coming together nicely.
Marcus- John Didion - You won’t find many college highlights for Didion, but he was one of Oregon State’s greatest offensive lineman. The center was an All-American and member of the Beavs great ‘Giant Killers’ team in the late 60’s.
Marcus- Rashaad Reynolds - While undersized, Reynolds was a star cornerback during his time in Corvallis. He ended his college career with 218 tackles and 10 interceptions and absolutely took over the 2013 Hawaii Bowl.
Leo - Devin Chappelle - With two shut-down corners in play, I wanted some hard hitting safeties. So I grabbed Chappelle first because I loved how hard he played his senior season by forcing a school record six fumbles. This made for a sweet highlight reel. Not bad for a walk-on.
Travis- Kyle DeVan- I grabbed myself an underrated O linemen who helped get Peyton Manning a ring in Indy. The versatility to play multiple spots and the smarts to lead the OL. DeVan is currently the O line coach at Ball state
Ross- Jake Cookus-The civil war hero and Fiesta Bowl winner lands on my squad. Cookus completes my secondary with my other safety to pair with Meeuwsen. Intercept Joey Harrington 3 times in one game is more than enough to get in my good graces. Lockdown secondary here!
Ross -Dylan Wynn-I finally get back to my D-line with my pick of Wynn here to pair with Swancutt. Wynn was a second-team all conference during his last year at OSU, and will bring more nasty to the D-line.
Travis- Steven Nelson- The OSU corner will hang out opposite Keenan Lewis. During his junior year he snagged 6 picks and eventually made his way to the NFL. With these ball hawks on my roster you better not plan on throwing it too much.
Leo - Al Afalava - Another hard hitting safety to complement two shut down corners and Chappelle. Plus it’s fun to chant “A-FA-LA-VA!”
Marcus- Yvenson Bernard - Another star Oregon State running back. Bernard deserves to go much higher, but everyone had already grabbed their feature back so I knew I could wait for a bit before nabbing Bernard. He was just a workhorse in Corvallis.
