Oregon State DT Stephen Paea to Undergo Knee Surgery

Oregon State defensive tackle Stephen Paea damaged the lateral meniscus in his right knee during Monday's Senior Bowl practice, Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports.

Wilson adds that Paea will undergo surgery on Thursday.

A two-time first-team All-Pac 10 honoree, as well as an first-team AP All-American in 2010, Paea (6-1, 311) is a run-stuffing tackle some draft analysts have project to go as high as the late first-round in April's draft.

In three seasons with the Beavers, Paea totaled 129 tackles, including 29.5 for a loss and 14 quarterback sacks with 9 forced fumbles.
