Stephen PaeaDefensive tackle | Oregon State
Before the season, Oregon State senior defensive tackle Stephen Paea established himself as a shoo-in for All-Combine. His 44 reps of 225 pounds became a shoo-in for All-YouTube. During the season, Paea established himself as a shoo-in for All-Everything Else.
At 6-foot-1 and 311 pounds, Paea is not a building with feet. He's more like a mobile home with feet, and the emphasis is on mobile. He tied for the Pacific-10 Conference lead with four forced fumbles. His six sacks illustrate his quickness and his motor.
He will be a joy to watch on many Sundays to come.
