Marcus- Slade Norris - Norris played for Oregon State from 2006-09 and racked up 19 sacks as a junior/senior playing linebacker. He went on to be a fourth round draft pick by the Oakland Raiders.
Leo - Michael Phillip - The former freshman All-American started 48 games at left tackle, including the 2012 year when the Beavers went to the Alamo Bowl. He anchored and offensive line that paved the way for freshman Storm Woods to have a big season that same year.
Travis- Chris Gibson- After blasting holes for Kenny Simonton and Steven Jackson in the early 2000’s, Gibson will pave the way for JacQuizz. The four-year letterman was named first-team all-conference and third-team All-America in 2000 as a junior before settling for second-team all-conference in 2001 as a senior.
Ross- Inoke Breckterfield- Breckterfield was DOMINANT in his time at Oregon State. In 1998, he was 3rd team All-American in addition to making 1st team all Pac-10 in that same year. He was also the recipient of the Morris Trophy, awarded to the conference’s top defensive lineman. Breckterfield is a late round sleeper I snag to pair with Wynn and Swancutt. My D-Line is looking nasty to play against...
Ross-DJ Alexander-Alexander was the leader in the middle of the OSU during the 2014 season. He accumulated 70 tackles, 12 TFL, and 4 sacks in his 2014 campaign. He and Steve Brown would make a dynamic duo linebacking core.
Travis-Brandon Hardin- Another corner turned safety will fill out the defensive backfield for team Travis. Pro tip. Don’t throw on us.
Leo - Eric Manning - Manning was a two time first team all-conference performer in the early 2000s. He was a monster his senior year with 14 tackles for a loss despite getting a lot of attention from offensive linemen. Imagine him lined up with both Crichton and Grant!
Marcus- Mike Remmers - Another walk-on success story! After a surprising freshman season Remmers was given a scholarship and went on to start every game for the rest of his college career. His 44 career starts ranked sixth in Beavers’ history at the time. He went undrafted in 2012, but proved his value in the NFL and signed a $30 million contract with the Vikings last year.
Marcus- Bill “Earthquake” Enyart - Full back/linebacker extraordinaire! Enyart rushed for a (then) school-record 1304 yards and 17 TD’s as a senior in 1968. Full backs are less useful in today’s football landscape, but he’s too talented not to draft. My team will definitely run some I-formation (and maybe a little triple-option) with Baker/Enyart/Bernard all in the backfield.
Leo - Josh Mitchell - Needing a fifth guy on the offensive line, I found Mitchell still on the board. He started his final 24 games at center, and in his junior year he was the only lineman to start every game at the same position. His senior season he was rewarded with a first team All-Pac-12 selection. My offensive line is set!
Travis- Doug Nienhuis-The four-year letterman was named second-team all-conference as a junior in 2003 and to the first-team in 2004.
Ross- Connor Hamlett-Connor Hamlett finished with the 3rd most receiving yards for TEs in OSU history as well as having the fifth most receiving yards for a TE in OSU history. Hamlett is a great receiving threat as well as a solid blocker to add a nice complement to my offense.
Ross- Sumner Houston- Sumner started on the D-Line at OSU before converting to the O-line. He has worked all along the interior of the line and could fit in any of my guard positions or even start at Center.
Travis-James Lee- Big enough to play DT, quick enough to play DE, he gives my DL some flexibility. The former JUCO transfer went on to play for the Green Bay Packers before opening a dog grooming business in California. Lee unfortunately passed away in 2006. R.I.P
Leo - Trent Bray - Bray was a tackling machine back in the mid 2000s where he totaled 122 and 116 tackles in his junior and senior seasons respectively. He eventually reached first team all-conference his senior year.
Marcus- Joe Newton - Newton was an extremely talented tight end for Oregon State. His college stats won’t blow you away, but he always seemed to come up with a big-play right when the Beavers needed it.
Marcus- Ryan Murphy - The safety had a prolific career from 2011-14. He ended his career with 235 tackles and 7 interceptions. He was drafted in the 7th round of the 2015 NFL Draft and even won a Super Bowl with the Broncos.
Leo - Colby Prince - Hey, if I’ve got Jackson running the ball, I’m going to give him guys to block for him. Prince was a two year starter at tight end, and while he was not a prolific pass catcher like some of the other tight ends in Oregon State history, he was a solid run blocker on that Alamo Bowl team. He could catch if needed and had pivotal grabs in wins against Wisconsin and BYU.
Travis- Joey LaRocque- Do you smell what LaRocque is cookin? Cause you’re about to. The JUCO stud turned into a stalwart LB for two years in Corvallis before heading to the pros. Joey gives me a Rock Solid LB core.
Ross- Jeff Schneider- Schneider has the 3rd most tackles in Oregon State history and completes my linebacking group. Schneider’s addition gives me a trio of tackling machines.
Ross- Curtis Coker-Coker was a solid player for the Beavs from 2005 through 2007. Coker is the final piece of my D-Line.
Travis- Josh “Juice’ Andrews- The final piece of my O-line is currently getting fitted for his super bowl ring. Andrews was a 3 year starter for the Beavs and rocked a very ‘nice’ number. This O-line is gonna wreck my opponents.
Leo - Alan Darlin - Darlin was part of a stud trio of linebackers in 2007 that made the all-conference second team and helped spearhead a defense that allowed the second fewest rushing yards per game.
Marcus- Gabe Miller - Miller started his college career at tight end, but switched to defensive end where he excelled. The rangy playmaker was drafted in the 5th round of the 2011 draft.
Marcus- Fletcher Keister - The offensive lineman best known for his fumblerooskie play. In 1992, the Beavers employed the old trick play and against Stanford completely fooled the defense. Keister picked up the ball and ran for a 72-yard touchdown. The trick play overshadows the fact that he was a third-team all-American as a senior at Oregon State.
Leo - Sam Paulescu - The first punter in Oregon State history to make first team All-Conference, Paulescu averaged 43 yards per punt his senior year.
Travis- Victor Bolden Jr- Was he one of the best recievers in OSU history? Probably not, but he’s electric with the ball in his hands, and using him in the fly sweep will stretch out the defense. Plus with him and Stroughter as my kick and punt returners, my opponents may be wise to kick it out of bounds.
Ross- Dustin Stanton-Stanton is a BIG addition to my offensive line. Literally and figuratively. The 6’ 4”, 298 lb guard brings force to the o-line I could use to complement my stud RBs.
Ross- Adam Koets-Another big sexy to finish my offensive line. Koets is the same height and weight as Stanton, so I’ve put an emphasis and getting size on my line. Nall and Simonton should enjoy rushing beyond this line.
Travis- Hostile Keith Kostol-Team Travis doesn’t plan on punting, but on the rare chance we do, we get a punter who averaged 40 yards per punt, and an engineering mind that evaluates trajectory and stuff. Kostol was solid at dropping punts within the 20 and minimizing returns.
Leo - Joe Halahuni - Instead of going for a two wide receiver set, I opted to add an H-back. Joe “the Tank” had 97 catches for 1147 yards and 13 touchdowns in his career. He really could have been more productive if he had a stable quarterback, playing with four different starters in his career.
Marcus- Brandon Hughes - Hughes was a lightning quick corner for the Beavs. He became a starter as a freshman and finished his college career with 178 tackles and three interceptions. He was drafted in the 5th round of the 2009 NFL draft. My offensive is built on power while my defense is centered around speed and athleticism.
Marcus- Alex Linnenkohl - As the draft winds down it’s time to fill out my roster with the big men on the offensive line. Linnenkohl never wowed anyone with freakish athleticism but the man could flat out play. Very underrated offensive lineman for the Beavs.
Leo - Kirk Yliniemi - The most accurate kicker in Oregon State history after going for 37-of-48 (86%). Not too bad.
Travis- Justin Kahut- I remember yelling at him from my apartment when he missed an extra point in Arizona. He later ended up being a co-worker of mine and I apologized. Good dude and a solid kicker so he gets the nod from me
Ross- Trevor Romaine-Romaine has the 2nd most career field goals for a Beaver Kicker, and is the 3rd most accurate kicker in OSU history. If, for some strange reason, my offense isn’t able to get 6, Romaine is close to a lock for getting my squad 3 points.
Ross- Nick Porebski-And with my final pick, I snag punter Nick Porebski. Porebski is another recent Beaver who was an excellent punter in his time at Oregon State. Porebski completes my dream team!
Travis- Kyle Peko- I solidfy my D-Line with Peko still on the board. His OSU career was short, but sweet, as a disruptive force on the D-Line he was one of the few bright spots of a 2-9 senior season.
Leo - Xavier Crawford - I had a hard time deciding between adding another defensive tackle or finding someone to play nickel. After much internal debate (and probably going over the imaginary draft clock) I chose to choose a current player in Crawford. I know he still has two years of eligibility left, and his sophomore season was riddled with injuries, but his freshman year was enough to make him worthy of a draft pick. He played opposite of Treston Decoud in 2016, so a lot of balls were thrown his direction, and he held his own by breaking up 11 passes. But the thing that sold me on him was how solid of a tackler he was, racking up 70, making him perfect for the nickle spot.
Marcus- Grant Enger - Last but not least, offensive lineman Grant Enger. He finished his career with 31 starts on the offensive line despite dealing with knee issues. He was a co-team captain and named Pac-12 Conference Honorable Mention (twice).
