09/07/2012 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: The challenge will be fairly simple in design, if difficult in execution. Can the Beavers limit the damage done by Wisconsin running back Montee Ball? He ran for 118 yards last year in less than three quarters, and the Beavers need to control him early and force some third-down situations. PLAYERS TO WATCH: MLB Feti Unga -- OSU's defensive plan is to funnel an opponent's running game to the middle linebacker, which promises to be a busy afternoon for the OSU senior. He led OSU with nine tackles against Wisconsin last season when he shared snaps at the position, and he'll need to hold up when put to the test this time. - The Sports Xchange

07/23/2012 - Top-five Oregon State prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 3. ILB Feti Unga...Though Oregon State has a long ways to go before anyone would confuse their production of NFL linebackers with that of Penn State or Southern Cal, the Beavers have consistently churned out talented tacklers. Unga, who ranked among conference leaders with 67 tackles prior to suffering a sprained knee on the first play against BYU and missing the next three games, has the size, strength and bloodlines to join the seven OSU linebackers drafted into the NFL since 2000. Related to four current or former NFL players, including current Chicago Bears' running back Harvey Unga and former Philadelphia Eagles' receiver Reno Mahe, Feti Unga (pronounced fed-TEE OONG-uh) initially signed with the Beavers in 2006 but traveled to Chile as part of a two-year LDS mission. Upon his return Unga quickly established himself as a standout special teams' performer (second leading tackler in 2009) and served as a key backup as a sophomore before winning the starting inside linebacker role in 2011. An aggressive and physical tone-setter in the middle, Unga paced the Beavers with a career-high 14 tackles against UCLA and nearly matched that total in the Civil War against the speedy Oregon Ducks (13 tackles). To earn a draftable grade, Unga will, of course, have to remain healthy in 2012 and show improvement in pass coverage. His size, ability to take on and shed blocks at the point of attack and reliable, physical hitting, however, make him one of the more intriguing "thumpers" of a potentially strong 2013 class at inside linebacker. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
