Photo Essay: Oregon Pro Day


Last Thursday, Oregon hosted its Pro Day for the latest batch of NFL prospects to come out of Eugene. Although it’s the Ducks‘ speedy, electrifying offense that gets national recognition (not even going to mention their uniforms – oops, just did), it’s the players on the defensive side of the ball that have all the scouts’ attention.

The Ducks defense allowed just 21.6 PPG last year, twenty-fifth amongst FBS team. Dion Jordan (DE) and Kiko Alonso (LB), arguably the two most consistent playmakers in Oregon’s front seven, combined for 118 tackles, 6 sacks and 4 interceptions in 2012. Both players are currently dealing with injuries that have limited their pre-draft process.
