Oregon State TE Teagan Quitoriano sees plenty of similarities in NFL playbooks to Beaver offense
NFL Draft hopefuls are beginning to descend on Indianapolis for the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine.
Tight ends, quarterbacks, and wide receivers met with members of the media on Wednesday ahead of Thursday’s field work. They’ve already met with teams for pre-workout interviews and gotten their hands on NFL playbooks to run through.
Oregon State tight end Teagan Quitoriano said Wednesday he felt like his time in Corvallis has prepared him well for the moment.

“I think Oregon State’s offense set me up perfectly for transitioning into this league,” he said. “The more I talk to coaches and the more I see NFL offenses, I see similarities to what we ran in college and it has actually made it easier transitioning and learning plays in an NFL playbook.”
The 6-foot-6 Oregon native caught 19 balls in 13 appearances last season, totaling 214 yards and three touchdowns. For his career as a Beaver, he made 30 starts and put up 40 receptions for 512 yards and six touchdowns.
He currently sits as the 10th-best available tight end in the draft, according to ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr.
