Good morning Duck fans. Here's your daily fix.
- Yesterday was the final competition day of the spring and the Oregon defense won again thanks to what sounds like a terrific day by WTIII -- Kelly estimated that Thurmond had six or seven picks throughout the drills. And, keeping with another trend of the spring, the punting was less than impressive. eDuck also has their practice report up -- with more praise for Thurmond. They credit the senior CB with *only* five picks, though four were thrown by Masoli.
- Moseley has a feature piece up today on Casey Mathews and his emergence as a force at middle linebacker as well as a leader. As others have noted throughout the spring, the talent Oregon currently has at linebacker is such that we have not seen for awhile. The development and play of this unit is something I am very interested in watching this fall. John Hunt also posts his thoughs on the linebackers, noting that group is relatively young and confident.
- In Duck draft news, Andy McNamara has some notes up about the draft -- including a few firsts. The BleacherReport runs down the rosters of the Texans and Redskins in order to estimate the chances of Jeremiah Johnson and Jaison WIlliams sticking, respectively.
- The Ducks also play a single baseball game against the Beavers today at Goss Stadium. Jeff Smith notes that the propsect of playing OSU has helped pick up the spirits of the team after a sweep by the Huskies.
