Former Oregon redshirt senior RB Thomas Tyner (shoulder) transferred to Oregon State as a graduate.

Tyner announced his medical retirement from the sport in February 2016 following debilitating injuries to both of his shoulders. The former five-star prospect now wants to return to the field, and he hopes to do so for Oregon's archrival. The 5-foot-11, 201-pound Tyner, a speedster who once ran a 4.28-second forty, rushed for 1,284 yards and 14 touchdowns across two seasons with the Ducks. He hasn't played since 2014 and must be cleared by the NCAA. But if healthy and eligible, Tyner will make for a strong No. 2 change-of-pace back behind the thundering Ryan "Wrecking" Nall.

Oregon State HC Gary Andersen indicated that the team could use three quarterbacks in 2017 depending on specific in-game scenarios

Jake Luton -- who started the team's spring game -- looks to be in line for traditional starting duties. Beyond Luton, though, Riley remains intrigued by the athleticism of Darell Garretson and Marcus McMaryion (both of whom saw starts last season). "We have three guys, and it's a lot better than not having any," Andersen said. "We want to be able to get ourselves in a spot to find a quarterback that can make the game changing plays." Oregon State is coming off a 4-8 2016 season, but taking a closer look at that record, the Beavers were stuck with tight losses to Stanford, Utah and Washington State. They closed up shop with a victory over Oregon in the Civil War.

49ers signed Oregon State WR Victor Bolden.

Bolden (5’8/178) made 30 starts at wideout for the Beavers, leading the team in receptions in each of his final three years and compiling a career 167-1,849-7 (11.1 YPR) receiving line in addition to 93-731-3 (7.9 YPC) rushing. A true all-purpose dynamo, Bolden returned three career kickoffs for touchdowns and scored once on a punt. While his versatility is an obvious plus, Bolden is undersized even by NFL slot-receiver standards and ran a disappointing 4.54 at the Combine. Bolden will have to make his mark on special teams.

Texans selected Oregon State S Treston Decoud with the No. 169 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Decoud (6’2/206) bounced from Chadron State to community college before spending his final two seasons at Oregon State, where he made 21 starts and collected 5.5 tackles for loss with two interceptions. The cousin of ex-Falcons FS Thomas Decoud, Treston earned national notice by holding Cal WR Chad Hansen to 16 yards on four receptions last October. (Hansen had 70 yards or more in all of his other games). Decoud offers Seahawks-cornerback-like size and extremely long arms (33"), but he has a scary concussion history, tested poorly before the draft, and will be a 24-year-old rookie. An efficient tackler, Decoud could be tried at safety.

Falcons selected Oregon State T/G Sean Harlow with the No. 136 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Harlow (6’4/303) made 37 starts on the Oregon State's offensive line – his first 14 at right tackle and final 23 on the left side – and earned second-team All-Pac 12 in 2016 despite missing the first four games with a broken leg. PFF College charged Harlow with just one QB hit allowed last season. The son of former Patriots first-round pick Pat Harlow, Sean’s size, short arms (32"), and pedestrian athleticism make him best fit for the interior. He did log practice reps at center during his college career. Harlow’s likeliest NFL projection is as a versatile reserve, although he could become a lower-end starting guard or center.

Oregon State T Dustin Stanton worked out for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline sees Stanton as a probable undrafted free agent. A former tight end who became three-year starter on the offensive line for Oregon State, Stanton has good size but struggles with speed rushers. He must clean up his footwork.

TCU redshirt senior RB Trevorris Johnson transferred to Oregon State as a graduate.

"We are very excited to have someone of Trevorris' ability, character and focus join our program. He brings a level of maturity to our team on and off the field," said Oregon State HC Gary Andersen. With Ryan Nall already installed as starter, the 5-foot-11, 226-pound Johnson will be jostling with Artavis Pierce for backup duties come the start of August camp. He turned in 225 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 41 carries with the Horned Frogs this past season.

Oregon State CB Treston Decoud visited the Cowboys on Thursday.

Dallas badly needs secondary help, and they could really use a corner or two after losing Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne in free agency (along with safeties Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox). Decoud would be a value buy on Day 3. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes the 6-foot-2, 206-pound Decoud could play safety in the NFL, and that's a good thing because some believe he's not quite fast enough for corner (4.62s forty at the Combine, 4.55s at his pro day). In a recent mock draft, NFL Media's Chad Reuter slotted Decoud near the top of Round 5.

Oregon State OL Sean Harlow is visiting the Saints and Browns this week.

Harlow attended the NFL Combine and tested in the 32nd percentile. Harlow played left tackle this season and missed a number of games to open the season due to an ankle injury. Harlow gained around 20 pounds in the last few seasons and might be viewed as a utility lineman in the NFL.

Oregon State HC Gary Andersen declined to name a starting quarterback following Saturday's spring game.

"I truly believe we have three quarterbacks who can manage the football game in the Pac-12. It comes down to who can make special plays. We’ll continue to evaluate them," said Andersen. The three quarterbacks in question, here, are JUCO transfer Jake Luton, redshirt junior Marcus McMaryion and redshirt senior QB Darell Garrettson. Looks like we will have to wait until August camp before we have an answer as to who will lead the Beavers into battle for the 2017 season.

Oregon State CB Devin Chappell met with the Dolphins at his pro day.

Chappell did not receive an invitation to the NFL Scouting Combine, but during pro day festivities, the 6-foot, 201-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.61 seconds and the short shuttle in 4.32 seconds while logging jumps of 35 inches (vertical) and 9-foot-8 (broad). He was a busy little bee this past season, registering a hearty 75 tackles (6.0 for loss), an interception and seven passes defended in 12 games. He will likely have to find his way as an undrafted free agent unless a team takes a flier on him late on Day 3.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes that due to a lack of speed, Oregon State CB Treston Decoud's best NFL fit might come at safety.

Pauline calls Decoud a "much better football player than athlete," explaining that "[h]e’s a solid cornerback but the lack of pure speed, both in the forty and on film, makes me believe he’s better off inside at safety." On the speed front, the 6-foot-2, 206-pounder logged a relatively uninspiring 4.62 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the Combine. He bettered that in his pro day work, coming in at 4.55 seconds. NFL Media's Lance Zierlein is of the same belief as Pauline, that safety is probably Decoud's snuggest next-level fit.
Mar 19 - 1:15 PM

Oregon State senior WR Jordan Villamin (knee) exited Saturday's spring game due to an undisclosed injury.

Villamin was already being limited in spring practice due to a knee injury. Whether his being lifted in the first half of Saturday's contest related to a reaggravation of that prior ailment is unknown at this juncture. Villamin is coming off a 2016 season in which he caught 21 passes for 253 yards and a touchdown across eight games played.
Mar 19 - 1:03 PM

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline passes along that the Jets met with Oregon State WR Victor Bolden on pro day.

Per Pauline, the Jets see Bolden as a potential immediate contributor in the return game. Among his pro day results, he notched a 40-yard dash time of 4.53 seconds and a three-cone drill time of 6.69 seconds. Those were slight improvements over his times at the NFL Scouting Combine. While he is a better player than his collegiate statistics would indicate -- Bolden was unable to surpass 550 receiving yards in either of the past two campaigns -- a late selection on Day 3 is the best he can realistically hope for come the draft.
Mar 18 - 3:59 PM

Oregon State redshirt junior QB Jake Luton has been the first signal-caller to take reps during practice sessions open to the media.

Beavers offensive coordinator Kevin McGiven says snaps at Saturday’s spring game will be divided "equally." Luton is hoping to fend off Darell Garretson, Marcus McMaryion and Conor Blount for the job. The 6-foot-6, 209-pound pocket passer was a four-star JUCO signee in the past cycle. "All those guys understand that they’ve got to maximize their opportunities and maximize the reps that they get," McGiven said. "They feel that pressure, and I think that’s good for them right now is they feel that pressure to get out there and perform well. All of them give the offense a chance to move when they’re in there."
