Today we’re continuing our countdown of 21 of the most exciting players to watch on the 2021 Beavers with the final piece of Oregon State’s offensive line, center Nathan Eldridge.

#4 - Nathan Eldridge

  • Position: Offensive Line
  • Class: Redshirt Senior
  • Height/Weight: 6’4”, 297 lbs.
  • Hometown: Anthem, AZ / Boulder Creek High School

When Eldridge was finally to hit the field last season after coming to Corvallis from Arizona, the Oregon State offensive line immediately took a big step forward. The O-Line was solid from tackle to tackle, but Eldridge at center was definitely the standout. He was named first team All Pac-12 for 2020, and ahead of 2021 he has been named to the Outland Trophy Watch List, given to the nation’s top interior lineman, and the Rimington Trophy Watch List, given to the nation’s top center. There’s a lot of expectations on Eldridge headed into what could be his final season at OSU, but he seems set to deliver.
