Oregon State Football's defense was arguably the biggest reason the Beavs won 7 games, and not more, in 2021. With new DC Trent Bray taking over on staff for Jonathan Smith, there's reason for optimism on that side of the ball in Corvallis. After narrowly missing out on acquiring former Georgia QB JT Daniels, Chance Nolan appears to be the best option for Oregon State at quarterback. Depth is a mild concern, but Chance Nolan should still be behind a good offensive line this year.
On this episode of Locked On Pac-12, Spencer McLaughlin is joined by Carter Bahns, senior writer/editor at Beaverblitz.com, to look at the Beavs' Spring Game in Corvallis. In the Spring Game, several players earned playing time based on their standout performances. One player who needs to see an increased role is WR Silas Bolden, who no longer has Zeriah Beason in the WR unit after he transferred to Washington State. RB Damien Martinez has arguably been the Beavs' best ball carrier this Spring, A slew of linebackers also performed well, a group including Kyrei Fisher, Andrew Chatfield Jr., and others who have to step up with two starting jobs available.
Moving forward, the Beavers have a couple areas they can address before their first game is played this Fall--starting with the defensive line. Adding a transfer would be a welcome addition for new defensive coordinator Trent Bray. With the renovation of Reser Stadium, Oregon State is hoping it will build momentum around the program. The changes to their home field should help, but it's still about putting a product on the field that fans can rally behind.
