DE DION JORDAN JUNIOR
A triple threat for the Ducks' D
Having made the switch from receiver--tight end before last season, Jordan appears poised to become the Ducks' newest defensive playmaker. At 6' 7" and 230 pounds, he is long, lean and athletic—an ideal fit in Oregon's nontraditional scheme. Jordan is versatile enough to stop the run, harass the quarterback or drop back to help out in pass coverage.
RB DE'ANTHONY THOMAS FRESHMAN
Express from L.A. to Eugene
In a last-minute switch, the five-star recruit spurned hometown USC and signed with Oregon, becoming the Ducks' biggest catch in years. Nicknamed the Black Mamba, the speedy Thomas could also see time at receiver.
