The Oregon Ducks are coming off of their first loss of the season to the Stanford Cardinal, while the once red hot Oregon State Beavers are trying to rejuvenate their season with a win over their in-state rivals.
I absolutely love the way the Ducks play offensively, and I love how Kenjon Barner runs the football. He’s not the only good NFL Draft prospect in this game, but he’s certainly one of my favorites. We’ve taken a look at some of the top pro prospects from each of these teams, which you can view here:
Let’s see if that Oregon State defense is up to the task today. Here is a preview from our Oregon Ducks page earlier this season:
96 Dion Jordan, Defensive End, RS Senior 6’6″ 246 pounds
Very good looking defensive end/outside linebacker prospect who has really developed in terms of his size over the last four years. Great overall size and length for a defensive line prospect who was a first team All-Pac 12 performer as a junior with 13 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks. Really good pursuit and play recognition skills, and a great overall athlete who also participates on special teams. Came to Oregon as a wide receiver/tight end and has really good natural athletic skills. Gets upfield in a hurry, and while he is still transitioning to the defensive side of the ball, he has made great strides and could be primed to be one of the best defensive players in the country. He has the length to really cause problems for opposing offensive linemen and make plays consistently behind the line of scrimmage. Really does a good job of working upfield and never gives up on a play.
