Below are notable Oregon State players eligible for the 2018 NFL Draft. The Beavers have stumbled over the past several seasons and hope to get back on track during Coach Gary Anderson’s third year with the program. The team does have some notable offensive talent, which should keep them competitive throughout their PAC-12 schedule this fall.
Nall reminds me of Virginia Tech swiss army knife Sam Rogers from last season. Like Rogers, Nall originally started his career as a Tight End/H-back before his versatility forced coaches to get creative in generating him touches. Nall rewarded the Oregon State staff with nearly 1200 yards from scrimmage and 13 touchdowns last season as a true sophomore. He’s not necessarily fleet of foot but he runs with every bit of power on his frame and is a fearless ball carrier.
Wide Receiver Jordan Villamin – 6050, 225 – Senior
Villamin entered 2016 with a number of fans in the draft community but he barely eclipsed 20 receptions for the year. Unfortunately for Villamin, the passing offense is still very much a question mark and he’s not guaranteed to find the production he had earlier in his college career to suggest his NFL future was bright.
Inside Linebacker Manase Hungalu – 6010, 238 – Senior
Hungalu was the team’s second leading tackler last year (83 combined) and he’s a traditional ILB: he’s at his best playing between the tackles and working into the line of scrimmage. He does show a moderate level of mobility to drop off in shallow areas of the field, so he looks to be capable of challenging routes between the hashes and over the middle.
