- It's Dion Jordan's day! He's in New York for the NFL Draft, and is expected to be a top-10 pick. As Rob Moseley writes, this could kick off a historic weekend for Oregon players in the NFL Draft. Where Jordan will go is quite up in the air. While some are projecting him to go in the top 5, Jordan's meteoric rise could cause some teams to waver on where to draft him. Aaron Fentress notes that status is a bit of a mystery. For reference, SBNation's Matthew Fairburn has Jordan going 7th, and SBNation's Dan Kadar has him going 13thin their last mock drafts.
- With Oregon losing 3 LBs to the NFL Draft, sophomore JC transfer Joe Walker has been making a big impression this spring. Walker still has a lot to learn, but he's giving the effort required at Oregon and could be fun to watch in the spring game.
- Speaking of the Spring Game, injuries have taken a bit of luster off the game. Oregon will have a scored scrimmage, as they only have 10 available offensive linemen. The scrimmage will be shown on the Pac-12 Network, so you can still get a glimpse of the Ducks before September.
- There might finally be a light at the end of the tunnel in the NCAA mess. According to SI's Thayer Evans, Oregon officials and Chip Kelly had a hearing with the NCAA Committee on Infractions last Friday. What this means is that we can expect the COI to give their final punishments within 60-90 days. If Oregon does not appeal, this could all be resolved before the football season.
- Lastly, a good question for the 2013 football season. What is Oregon's most important game? The obvious answer is Stanford, and that's what Kevin Gemmell says. It'll be a huge game, without a doubt. But for some reason, the big Pac-12 games don't scare me. It's usually the talented teams that aren't conference front-runners that have tripped up the Ducks over the past few years.
