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.

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.

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.

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."

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes that Oregon State CB Treston Decoud will make an NFL roster.

Should Decoud not land in the draft proper on Day 3, he could find his way onto an NFL roster via undrafted free agency. Either way, Pauline believes the 6-foot-3, 208-pounder has the chops for pro work. The analyst calls Decoud "a big, physical defensive back" and notes that the former Beaver could potentially shift to safety. This past season, Decoud registered 58 tackles (2.0 for loss) and intercepted a pair of passes. He did not miss a game during the 2016 campaign.

Oregon State junior WR Seth Collins (undisclosed) is listed as "Out for duration" on the Beavers' opening depth chart for spring practice.

Barring a turnaround on the health front, it is looking like Collins will sit out spring practice altogether. While the depth chart does not list his specific ailment (or to be more accurate, just lists it as "Rehab"), he was hospitalized due to illness in November. It appears that that illness sapped a fair bit of strength and weight from the quarterback-turned-wideout. In early February, HC Gary Andersen said, "I don't know that whole time frame. It's really gonna be the communication of Seth, the docs and how they kind of handle it. I'll just kind of follow their lead."

Oregon State CB coach Cory Hall said that he expects junior CB Xavier Crawford's interceptions to "go way up" in 2017.

In an interview with The Oregonian, Hall spoke about Crawford and his potential at length. "I think he showed a lot of poise and he showed a lot of toughness last year. It's hard to play 12 games straight and not miss a rep," Hall said, adding that "[h]e's not a secret anymore." The 6-foot-1, 182-pounder missed all of three snaps this past season, playing in 926 of 929. During the campaign, he registered 70 tackles, a sack, an interception and a forced fumble. Hall believes he has next-level potential.

Oregon State senior WR Jordan Villamin (knee) will see limited action during spring practice.

Villamin was a star of Oregon State's spring game last April, as ESPN's Chantel Jennings wrote that he "stole the show" with a pair of touchdown grabs. He might not be able to perform those heroics this time around, as he is not yet up to full speed due to a knee issue. His progress on the health front should clarify as spring practice unfolds. The 6-foot-1, 235-pounder logged a 21-253-1 receiving line in eight games last season.

CBS Sports draft analyst Dane Brugler tagged Oregon State WR Victor Bolden as a surprise invite for the NFL Scouting Combine.

Brugler notes that Bolden "has speed to burn and should light up the 40-yard dash." Playing in an Oregon State offense which often struggled to move the ball through the air, the 5-foot-9, 172-pounder failed to crack 550 yards receiving in either of the past two seasons. The lack of production is understandable and shouldn't be held against him too much by NFL squads, but his lack of size figures to be a sticking point. He projects as a likely undrafted free agent this spring.

Former Wisconsin and USF redshirt junior S Austin Hudson transferred to Oregon State as a graduate.

A two-star prospect in Wisconsin’s 2014 recruiting class, Hudson transferred to USF after one season. He appeared in 11 games for the Bulls in 2016 after sitting out 2015. Hudson will graduate in May from USF, making him eligible to play immediately. He has two years of eligibility remaining.

Oregon State signed four-star JUCO DT Craig Evans.

He's coming over from Arizona Western after originally signing with Michigan State in 2014. At that time, Evans was one of the nation’s top defensive tackles. He played two seasons in East Lansing and appeared in 11 games during the 2015 College Football Playoff run. He left the Spartans last spring for "personal reasons." Defensive tackle is a need position for the Beavers, so expect to see Evans on the field early.

Oregon State signed four-star JUCO QB redshirt junior QB Jake Luton.

Luton spent one year at the JUCO level after announcing that he'd transfer from Idaho last June. The 6-foot-6, 209-pound pocket passer was escaping from his backup post to Matt Linehan and now hopes he's located a school with a starting gig available to compete for. "This is a good looking passer that will take some chances, but has physical tools to be a factor right away," ESPN noted in a scouting report. Luton must work on his decision making and release.
