Mike Riley likes what he sees when he looks at Oregon State’s situation on defense.

The Beavers are looking to replace Rashaad Reynolds at cornerback and Scott Crichton at defensive end, but are solid at every other spot.

“The picture on defense is three seniors in the secondary, three seniors at linebacker, three seniors up on the defensive front and a couple older players that aren’t seniors,” Riley said.

“I love that picture. What we still have to have is consistency for that other corner spot and solidify depth on the defensive line. But the overall picture defensively is strong.”
