Oregon spring football practice roundup: Overtime

Although the first game is a little under five months away, it doesn't mean we can't talk about some Oregon football practices.

It's true, starting today and continuing for the next few weeks we will fill you in on practice highlights and interviews on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons.


Late-game situations was today's emphasis.

Tyson Coleman and Jeff Lockie both talked about how practicing these late-game scenarios will pay off in the fall. Charles Nelson seems to be making the transition to the dark side of the ball smoothly. According to Moseley's report, Nelson blew up a screen play during practice by pushing a blocker into the receiver.

LaMichael James 2.0?

Tony Brooks-James is having himself quite an offseason. The running back is also a member of the Oregon track team and Brooks-James ran a 60-yard dash in 6.81 seconds. This put him in the top-10 list for Oregon in this event. Brooks-James will join a loaded backfield and is looking to be effective at other positions like Byron Marshall. Learning the Oregon playbook and becoming a better blocker will pay off in playing time for the redshirt freshman.

Brady Hoke was at practice.

An unemployed Hoke was among those in attendance at today's practice. Jake Fisher, Troy Hill and Erick Dargan also watched practice today while they continue to prepare for the 2015 NFL Draft.
