There was a lot on the line for the Ducks who hoped to get drafted today. Both Brian Jackson and Avery Patterson referred to Pro Day as a job interview to get to the next level.
What many hoped to see was if De'Anthony Thomas could improve on his paltry combine appearance and he did not disappoint. Thomas looked to be back in form as he dropped his 40 time to 4.34 according to the scouts.
We got a gem from Brady Johnson who overheard one pro scout say, "That's the Black Momba we know."
Avery Patterson impressed with his quickness and ball skills while Josh Huff turned in a 40 time of 4.43.
It appeared that the Moshosky turf monster was eating up a few Ducks as Wade Keliikipi stumbled several times in the D-Line drills and Oregon alum LT Tuinei stumbled in the 3 cone drill.
Nate Costa was the one throwing passes to the receivers as Marcus Mariota could not participate due to NCAA rules. Thomas showed good abilities as a pass receiver as he showed an improved route running.
We have raw audio and photos from pro day, h/t to JF Trochez who shot from the sidelines. Follow him @JFTrochez for future Oregon shots down the road.
