Key Stats

  • 22 Receptions for 304 Yards
  • Average of 13.82 yards per reception
  • 1 Receiving Touchdown

Musgrave was third on the Beavers in receiving yards last season, and with departures in the receiving corps his numbers could see a sharp jump in 2022. Musgrave is already drawing some national attention, having just been named to John Mackey Award watch list.

Musgrave has also started to draw NFL attention, with draft sites commonly rating him as a third or fourth round prospect. It’s easy to see why. With his size, Musgrave is able to fight off defenders for contested catches, and is also able to jam up pass rushers at the line of scrimmage.

There are plenty of questions over who will be Oregon State’s number one running back and wide receiver, but Musgrave is a lock to be a big contributor to the offense this season.
