CJ Verdell declares for NFL Draft


New member
Big news today, surprising for some, not so much for others. CJ Verdell has declared for the NFL Draft and will not be returning to Eugene next season.

With Travis Dye headed to USC, the Ducks RB room is going to look A LOT different next season. Who do you think steps up as RB1?

My gut feeling is Cardwell after his promising season, but wouldn't be shocked if this is an open competition similar to the QB situation.

I think Cardwell has to be the leading candidate as of now. The Ducks will likely add a name or two. I think it'd be smart to go to the portal AND dip into the prep ranks with some of the guys they've been hosting lately for visits in Eugene. Whoever gets that job is going to have an awesome situation to walk into seeing that Oregon returns all but one offensive lineman next season.
