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.

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."

Bolden, was also the third leading ball carrier last season, with 118 yards on 19 carries. The Oregon State prospect should a play a big role in the Beaver's new spread offense in 2015.

Scout.com named Oregon State freshman QB Seth Collins a Pac-12 Spring Star.

"It looks like they found their guy in true freshman Seth Collins. Yeah he played like a freshman much of the time and made his share of mistakes and errant throws. But Collins also made a ton of big plays for the Beavers offense over the spring," Scout.com's Jamie Newberg wrote. The 6-foot-3, 186-pound Collins dual-threat QB must continue to develop as a passer, but has the tools to thrive in HC Gary Andersen's new spread offense.

NFL Media pegs Oregon State freshman QB Seth Collins as "slightly in front of redshirt freshmen Nick Mitchell and Marcus McMarylon on the depth chart."

Recently, Oregon State HC Gary Andersen called his QB competition "1A versus 1B." NFL Media notes: "Coach Gary Andersen seems to be OK with a rebuilding project because the Beavers are going from one of the most experienced signal-callers in the league to the youngest." The 6-foot-3, 186-pound Collins was only a three-star recruit, but he impressed the coaching staff during the spring.

Oregon State HC Gary Andersen called his QB competition "1A versus 1B."

It is a common line coaches use, especially ones who lost quarterbacks to the NFL. Andersen is beginning his first season with Oregon State after moving from Wisconsin. The two quarterbacks in the competition are Seth Collins and Nick Mitchell, although Andersen did point out Marcus McMaryion.

ESPN's Ted Miller predicts Oregon State freshman QB Seth Collins will star as a true frosh.

The 6-foot-3, 186-pound Collins was only a three-star recruit, but he has already impressed the coaching staff with a big vacancy after Sean Mannion graduated to the NFL. He isn't much like Mannion. Collins is a dual-threat who threw for 1,013 yards with a 12/5 TD/INT ration and 988 rushing yards and 17 scores as a senior in high school.

Oregon State redshirt freshman CB Dashon Hunt has retired from football due to spinal stenosis.

Seahawks selected Oregon State DB Ryan Murphy with the No. 248 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

The Seahawks love using picks this late on athletic upside. Murphy was not on the draftnik radar, but stands 6-foot-1, 214 and ran 4.48 with a 39-inch vertical and 10-foot-5 broad jump at the Beavers' Pro Day. Murphy played free safety at Oregon State, but we wouldn't be surprised if Seattle tried to turn him into a press corner. He's a developmental project.

Seahawks selected Oregon State DE Obum Gwacham with the No. 209 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

Gwacham (6'5/246) played receiver, slotback and special teams in his first three college seasons before converting to defensive end as a senior, posting four sacks. Gwacham also competed for Oregon State's track team in the triple and high jumps. He ran 4.72 with a 36-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump at the Combine. Gwacham has a great head on his shoulders and intriguing tools, but will be a 24-year-old rookie and may max out as a special teamer who only dabbles as a passing-down specialist. He's a poor run defender and lacks pass-rush moves.
