The NFL draft starts tonight with the made-for-TV first round going on at prime time. No former Oregon State football player will be selected that early.
QB Sean Canfield and LB Keaton Kristick are the top picks. Here’s a link to my story on them in Thursday’s edition that catches up with what they’ve been doing recently since March’s pro day.
Rounds 2-3 are Friday with 4-7 going Saturday. Canfield is projected in the late-middle rounds and Kristick is a late-rounder. So they’re names should be called Saturday.
There are a few free agent candidates with OG Gregg Peat, DE Ben Terry, WR Damola Andeniji and CB Tim Clark. Adeniji and Clark wouldn’t surprise me if they get drafted.
Clark had a good chance to be drafted if his leg wasn’t broken during the Civil War. Maybe he showed well to scouts in recent weeks to get a shot.
Adeniji’s size and hands would make it an interesting prospect. We’ll see if the scouts think he’s fast enough.
Here’s a link to AD Bob De Carolis’ statement about the state of women’s basketball. And just to let you know, OSU doesn’t have the money to buy out coach LaVonda Wagner out of the last three years on her contract. So, it’s at least another year.
