Oregon State senior TE Connor Hamlett "is giving up football due to injuries," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.
The Oregon State prospect went through three minor knee surgeries in the last two years. The 6-foot-7, 263-pound Hamlett was only able to play at about 80 percent, due to knee pain and swelling during his final season with the Beavers. Wed, Mar 18, 2015 02:48:00 PM

ESPN's Steve Muench says that Oregon State senior TE Connor Hamlett "is far from a finished product."

He means it in a good way. "Hamlett [Muench's No. 5 TE] has a slight edge over Iowa State's E.J. Bibbs on my board, and the reason is upside," the analyst wrote. "He gets pushed around at times because he tends to play high and he needs to get stronger at the point of attack. He's never going to be an explosive route runner, but crisper footwork and improving his ability to push around defensive backs would help in terms of his separation skills." Hamlett suffered from two different knee injuries in 2013 and has a wiry lower body. "However, he has the prototypical frame for a Y prospect at 6-7 and 262 pounds," Muench wrote. "He's a big and reliable target who can shield defenders from the ball, and has the potential to develop into a productive red zone target. While he's not much of a threat after the catch, he has the size and enough speed to work the seam."

Oregon State senior TE Connor Hamlett "offers extraordinary size and soft hands," according to CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Hamlett caught 40 passes for 364 yards and five touchdowns while suffering through a pair of knee injuries last year. "Healthy and with OSU needing weapons to pick up the slack with [Brandin] Cooks' departure, he could be in for a monster senior campaign," Rang wrote. "Hamlett offers extraordinary size and soft hands. He isn't as physical at the point of attack as his size would indicate and is more of a short-yardage security blanket rather than a seam threat." Hamlett will provide good TE value in Pac-12 leagues if he can stay healthy in 2014.

Oregon State starting junior TE Connor Hamlett recently underwent minor arthroscopic knee surgery and will be sidelined for one or two weeks.

Hamlett will almost certainly miss the October 26 game against Stanford, but head coach Mike Riley feels "really good" about the tight end playing against USC the following week. Junior Brandin Cooks is the school's leading receiver, but Hamlett has recorded 25 catches for 198 yards and four touchdowns this season.
