The next spot in the Top 20 Oregon State players countdown is reserved for a powerful offensive lineman, who is expected to anchor one of the best group of blockers in all of college football. Today, it’s Heneli Bloomfield coming in at the #15 overall selection.
#15) Heneli Bloomfield
Standing in at 6’ 4” and right around 300 pounds, it’s not a secret what exact Heneli Bloomfield’s job is on the Beavers roster. Pave holes for Oregon State’s electric run-game and keep on doing it for all four quarters.
The Utah State transfer had a breakout campaign in 2022, playing in 11 games for head coach Jonathan Smith, as part of a group that put forth one of the best running outputs in the country. And with Damien Martinez, a likely first-team All-Pac-12 selection able to make the most of what his boys up front put down, the Beavers will rely heavily upon talents like Bloomfield to get the job done.
In the Pac-12 preseason media poll, Bloomfield was also an honorable mention selection, joining fellow front-line talent Joshua Gray (first team) and Jake Levengood (second team) on the list of stand-outs.
