Oregon State offensive coordinator Dave Baldwin told reporters both freshmen QBs will play in the season opener against Weber State.

Seth Collins and Marcus McMaryion are the two quarterbacks vying for the starting job, and the competition will continue into the season. "And play both of them probably in the second game. And probably in the third game, I'll do the same thing," Baldwin said. No eligible quarterback on the roster has actual game experience.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline pegs both of Oregon State's underclass starting offensive tackles (Dustin Stanton and Sean Harlow) as NFL prospects and tells readers to "to keep an eye on" both.

Harlow, the son of former first round pick Pat Harlow, earned a seventh-round grade. Stanton, meanwhile, was called a sixth-rounder by Pauline. "In my opinion Stanton’s a little more rounded and definitely stronger," he wrote.

Oregon State senior CB Larry Scott offers "better size than former teammate Steve Nelson," notes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

Scott measures out at 5-foot-11, 192 pounds, while Nelson (who was drafted by the Chiefs in the third round this past spring) tips the scales at 5-foot-11, 197 pounds. There's no obvious difference there, but Pauline likes Scott's body more. The draft expert also noted that the senior "offers solid ball skills" and "deserves more attention." That being said, Pauline still ranks him as a potential seventh-round selection.

Oregon State is expected to choose freshman Seth Collins as the school's starting QB.

Collins "delivered the most consistently explosive performance in the spring game, and that momentum seems to have carried with him through the summer," according to beat writer David Lombardi. Collins was only considered a 3-star recruit out of high school, but new head coach Mike Riley apparently likes what he sees. Whoever starts, expect them to frequently be handing off to the running backs.

Oregon State senior DT Kyle Peko "is a short but thick interior presence with relatively light feet," believes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

The 6-foot-1, 317-pound Peko is a cousin of starting NFL defensive tackle Domata Peko and former NFL defensive tackle Tupe Peko. He's a blocker muncher, allowing the linebackers behind him to flow to the ball.

Oregon State redshirt junior RB Tim Cook will miss the season with an undisclosed injury.

Cook is a JUCO signee. Beat writer Gina Mizell notes the depth chart should open with senior Storm Barrs-Woods should taking first-team reps, with sophomore Damien Haskins and true freshman Deltron Sands as backups. Cook is easily Oregon State's largest back.

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes Oregon State junior WR Victor Bolden "has the traits to emerge as an early round pick ... but he'll have to show more polish as a route-runner and receiver."

The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Bolden has the "experience and athleticism to project nicely to (a slot and offensive weapon) role in the NFL," according to Rang. He led the team with 72 receptions for 798 yards last year and was also third in rushing with 118 yards on 19 carries. "Bolden is a quick accelerator who can erase pursuit angles," Rang wrote. "Bolden isn't just fast, he's quick, possesses the balance to spin off glancing blows and has good vision to set up blocks, all of which make him a legitimate scoring threat each time he touches the ball." He's a dynamic returner who was more or less pulled off special teams in 2014 to focus on offense. "He's at his best on quick screens, slants and fly-sweeps where he can easily collect the ball in space and use his creativity to elude defenders," Rang wrote. "He's lightning quick off the ball, showing the burst and enough strength to slip by press coverage."

CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes Oregon State redshirt senior RB Storm Woods is "one of the Pac-12's best all-around backs," but could "improve" his draft stock with better ball security.

"He doesn't always wrap both arms around the ball through traffic and doesn't consistently transfer the ball to his outside arm," Rang wrote. The Oregon State prospect has been productive over his 31 career starts for the Beavers, recording 2,183 career rushing yards, along with 111 career receptions for 932 yards.

Oregon State senior C/G Isaac Seumalo "has the stout frame and natural strength" that helps him "succeed at the point of attack," CBS Sports' Rob Rang observes.

"Physically-speaking, Seumalo has the stout frame and natural strength that has helped many Polynesian players before him succeed at the point of attack. Seumalo incorporates excellent technique, as well, bending his knees and supplying a strong initial punch in textbook fashion," Rang wrote. Last season, the Oregon State prospect was forced to redshirt, after recovering from a foot injury sustained in 2013. The 6-foot-3, 310-pound Seumalo has 25 career starts on his resume, with 23 starts at center and two at right tackle. Seumalo flashes the versatility to play any of the five positions across the offensive line, but projects best on the inside at the next level.

After spring camp, "the buzz seems to be around" Oregon State freshman QB Seth Collins, as Sean Mannion's possible replacement, The Oregonian's Tyson Alger reports.

"While Mannion didn't accrue the same recognition as Marcus Mariota, you can't discount losing a four-year starter who passed for more than 13,500 yards in his career. And after spring camp, the buzz seems to be around the true freshman Collins as his possible replacement," Alger wrote. The 6-foot-3, 186-pound dual-threat QB passed for 1,013 yards, while rushing for 988 yards, accounting for 29 touchdowns as a senior in high school.

Oregon State coaches are confident that senior C/G Isaac Seumalo (foot) will be healthy for the start of the season.

Seumalo was forced to sit out last season and then spring practices while recovering from foot surgeries, but it doesn't sound like the problem will linger. "Seumalo, who also has started at right tackle for the Beavers, was considered one of the best guards in the nation during the recruiting process; guard is a potential landing spot for him this season," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin.

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks Oregon State senior C/G Isaac Seumalo as the top underclassmen center prospect in the 2016 NFL Draft.

"That's Say-You-Maw-Low on the pronunciation, folks," Kiper wrote. "He is no sleeper at this point, as he came out of high school as one of the best guards in the country." The analyst pegged Dan Voltz (Wisconsin) as second-best. "Voltz is a good one, and more proof that the Badgers' assembly line for producing offensive linemen is still cranking," Kiper wrote.
Jul 7 - 7:14 PM

Regarding Oregon State senior C/G Isaac Seumalo, NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein is "expecting to see a more consistent performer with the move to center."

"After missing 2014 with a foot injury, I am intrigued to see how he responds after a year away," Zierlein wrote. Seumalo is moving to center from guard, which is good news for his NFL stock, the analyst believes. "Seumalo has plenty of heft throughout his lower body and into his midsection and he operates with a centered, sure base and with natural upper-body strength," Zierlein wrote. "He plays a little upright and doesn't always play with desired leverage."
