Minutes ago, Jim Nagy, the Senior Bowl executive director has announced that Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert will be in attendance for the Senior Bowl in two weeks.

This is remarkable news as the former Ducks signal caller was initially projected in the top 10 of most mock drafts and did not have to participate but he elected to do so.

The Senior Bowl is the premier postseason all star event that all NFL teams, media, and the best of the best senior and graduate junior college players attend to show off their skills in front of their future employers. A player can make a name for himself in Mobile with an excellent week.

Some of the best players in NFL history have participated in this game and have gone on to successful careers.

Herbert joins fellow Ducks teammates linebacker Troy Dye and guard Shane Lemieux as they get set to go on their #ProDucks journey. He also joins a QB room that consists of Utah State’s Jordan Love, Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts, Washington State’s Anthony Gordon, Michigan’s Shea Patterson, and Colorado’s Steven Montez.

The William V. Campbell Trophy winner led the Ducks to a Rose Bowl win this past season and finished the 2019 season with a 67% completion percentage on 428 attempts to go with 32 touchdowns and just six interceptions. For his career, he produced a 64% completion rate, 10,541 yards, 95 touchdowns to just 23 interceptions on 1,293 attempts.

Addicted to Quack will have a representative in Mobile for the festivities so stay tuned for more Senior Bowl coverage!
