Scouting the Pac-12: Oregon State

Draft Analyst Writer

Oregon State’s contributions to the draft have primarily been mid-to-late round selections the past five years. They’ll need help from underclassmen in 2018 for that trend to continue.

Our top-rated senior is linebacker Manase Hungalu, a shorter yet forceful and hard-working linebacker with good instincts. He’s terrific in pursuit and makes numerous plays in space but lacks great next-level speed.

Junior Bright Ugwoegbu is slightly smaller but much faster and more explosive. He covers a lot of area on the field going sideline to sideline and could be a good nickel linebacker for the next level.

Blake Brandel is our highest-rated Beaver and a player with great upside. He’ll be the main man on the offensive line after the graduation of several OSU blockers, and we expect his game to take off.
