CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Southern Illinois senior TE MyCole Pruitt and senior RB Malcolm Agnew could become the first pair of Salukis selected in the same draft since 1972.

Both starred in Saturday's loss to Purdue. "Working out of the slot and inline, Pruitt had a game-best 10 catches for 136 yards, displaying quickness off the line of scrimmage with flexibility and gliding speed to catch the ball in stride and motor down the field," Brugler wrote. "He leaves you wanting more at times with some laziness in his routes and as a blocker, but Pruitt has smooth footwork to fool defensive backs with large, soft mitts to look the ball in and secure grabs. Agnew, an Oregon State transfer, averaged only 2.8 yards against the Boilermakers' defense, but he didn't receive much help from his offensive line. He is quick-footed with easy lateral moves and decisive action, attacking the line of scrimmage and wasting little time getting north-south. Agnew is also a reliable receiver out of the backfield, finishing second on the team Saturday with five catches for 36 yards. Both prospects are draftable talents."

Southern Illinois senior TE MyCole Pruitt "was stamped as a late round pick by scouts entering the season and proved his worth against Purdue," wrote TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline

Pruit had a huge game in Saturday's loss (SIU's only contest against an FBS team in 2014), hauling in 10 catches for 136 yards. He has collected between 43 and 48 receptions for 562 to 601 yards in each of the past three years, and already has 26 catches in four games this year. "Though short (under 6-feet/2-inches) he’s a sure handed tight end with enough speed to split the seam," Pauline wrote. "He’ll be a solid last day pick for a team needing a move tight end or H-back."

Southern Illinois senior TE MyCole Pruit had a huge game in Saturday's loss to Purdue, hauling in 10 catches for 136 yards (13.6 YPC).

Against a Big 10 opponent, this was a crucial game for Pruitt's NFL evaluation. Pruitt, one of the country's best small-school prospects, aced the test, burning Boilermaker defenders over and over again. The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder projects as a "hybrid pass-catcher who can line up in the backfield, inline and out wide," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote last month.

Oregon State sophomore RB Malcolm Agnew has transferred to Southern Illinois.

Agnew's brother, Ray Jr., is a fullback for the Salukis. The now former Beaver was stuck behind Storm Woods on the depth chart and has dealt with hamstring issues throughout his career. He will be eligible to play immediately and has two seasons remaining.

Oregon State beat writer Bob Clark believes the Beavers RB carries will most likely be split between freshman Storm Woods and sophomore Malcolm Agnew.

Head coach Mike Riley has not made a decision on the position, but the battle remains a close race and will likely result in a committee approach. Woods impressed all offseason and may end up earning the official starts. Agnew was incredibly productive as a featured runner in 2011, but his hamstring issues remain a concern.

Oregon State running back Malcolm Agnew is probable for BYU on Saturday.

Should the freshman be able to play against the Cougars, it will mark his first action against a FBS opponent. Agnew opened eyes with a 223-yard effort in the opener against Sacramento State of the FCS and a hamstring injury has since kept him sidelined.

Agnew made quite a splash with his college debut on Sept. 3. when he ran for 223 yards and 3 TDs against Sacramento State. He has not played since thanks to a an aggravated right hamstring. He has looked good in practice a could resume his freshman season at home against BYU on Saturday.

Oregon State freshman running back Malcolm Agnew is expected to return from a hamstring injury and play at Arizona State on Saturday.

After making quite a splash with 33-223-3 in his college debut during an opening-week win over Sacramento State, Agnew was forced to sit out the last two games thanks to his hammy. While Arizona State in Tempe will be a tall task, at least the Beavers (0-3) have some working parts. QB Sean Mannion looked pretty good against UCLA in his first-career start while WR James Rodgers and TE Joe Halahuni are healed and returned to the lineup against the Bruins.
