April 25, 2004
Corvallis, Ore. - Tight End Tim Euhus and linebacker Richard Seigler were selected in the fourth round of the NFL Draft Sunday. Euhus was the 13th pick of the round and 109th overall by the Buffalo Bills, while Seigler will have an opportunity to rejoin his former head coach, Dennis Erickson, with the San Francisco 49ers. Seigler was the 31st selection of the round and the 127th overall.
Euhus played his senior year at Oregon State at 6-5 247 pounds. The Eugene native played in 49 career games, starting 37 straight. He was a first team All-Pac-10 Conference selection as a senior. For his career he caught 98 passes for 1,346 yards and nine touchdowns. He also played in three bowl games, the Fiesta, Insight and Las Vegas. In addition, Euhus played one season of basketball for the Beavers.
Seigler played middle linebacker (6-3, 239) at OSU and is arguably the best player at his position ever at the school. He started 49 straight games and was the only freshman starter on the 2000 Fiesta Bowl champion team. Seigler was a first team All-Pac-10 Conference selection as a junior and senior, and honorable mention as a sophomore. The Sporting News named him to its Freshman All-American team. For his career he made 356 tackles, fourth at OSU all-time, and played in three bowl games.
Euhus and Seigler join former teammates Steven Jackson and Dwan Edwards who were selected Saturday. Jackson was a first round pick of the St. Louis Rams and Edwards went in the second round to the Baltimore Ravens.
A total of 31 student-athletes from the Pacific-10 were selected in the seven round draft. Oregon State, Washington, Washington State, Oregon, UCLA, and USC each had four individuals picked. Stanford had three, California and Arizona State two, and Arizona none.
