 Not sure why Darron Thomas is declaring............can't see him getting drafted until very late if at all, & Oregon has a lot of talent coming back.
 Maybe he has graduated & had enough of college life.

Thomas going pro makes no sense he can't play qb in the nfl. He'll have to change positions

knucklehead list wtf........
Bryce Brown....off  a very distinguished career
Jewell Hampton....Cliff Harris...(betcha stupid GM takes the risk in low rounds....although he was in Kelly's doghouse from day 1)

   *knucklehead Russell Shepard is coming back

Alvester Alexander ?

Thomas' leaving makes sense (to him) if you think about it....
*has degree (he says > others say not quite)...
*2 great years > but still kinda an afterthought...another year with Ducks probably won't make him a better prospect ......> if can't hook up next year with NFL he can go to Canada and make good money....which would prepare him better for NFL... than Oregon anyway > plus weed benefits.....

****many Duck "insiders" .....feel it very likely...that b/u Bryan Bennett would push him for playing time ....as he is a MUCH better runner...and has more upside as a passer...

Who is Riley Reiff? I've had season tickets to Michigan State games for the past four years and haven't seen this guy play a down.

Why wouldn't Osweiler stay and work a year under Todd Graham. I don't know why that he believes that he is ready for the NFL, I've never even seen him take a snap while under center.

Just shows you he cares more about himself than the team winning.  I'm not sure what position he can switch to (maybe WR?).

I agree 100% he is not an NFL QB.  I don't even think he is a good passing college QB, and he is no way big enough to run the ball in the pros IMO.
