Oregon State’s Potential Draft Picks

The Beavers are likely to end a two-year drought in the NFL Draft, as the program hasn’t had a player selected since 2017, when offensive lineman Sean Harlow and defensive back Treston Decoud were 4th and 5th round picks respectively. Hodgins is Oregon State’s only locked in selection, as the receiver has great size and strong hands, which makes him a suitable find for an NFL team in the middle rounds. As for Luton, he looks every bit the part of an NFL quarterback, but isn’t rated out as highly as many of his peers. He could go in the later rounds or be skipped over all together and be an early post-draft free-agent signing.
