Former Oregon Ducks left tackle Tyler Johnstone was the first UO player to run through drills at the NFL Combine, and represented himself and the school well on Friday in Indianapolis.
Here are a few tweets recapping Johnstone's performance, including some from the man himself. He's projected as a likely late-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, in part because he went through two knee surgeries at Oregon.
Ready to compete. I'm first up from the Oregon crew! Time to set the tone for the rest of my guys! #GoDucks pic.twitter.com/Ke3r9JzGqi— Tyler Johnstone (@TJohnstone64) February 26, 2016
