Ducks Who Are NFL Bound

Recommended Posts

Both Sewell and Gonzalez are going to the NFL, I'd be shocked if they didn't. 

 

Justin Flowe needs at minimum 1 more season before he even thinks about the NFL, he's got the physical tools but his instincts and football IQ are a work in progress.

 

Bo is probably gone as well, though it would be a small but very welcome surprise if it opts to return.  He's a gamer and I bet the way the season ended the last few weeks really sticks in his craw, which might provide some incentive to come back.

 

Gonzalez and Nix are the biggest holes to fill, I don't see anyone on the roster currently that can replace that same level of production for either.

Gonzalez has nothing else to prove at the college level.  In every game I watched the announcers discussed his transition to the next level and why he will be valuable.  He was absolutely a diamond of a get for Oregon this  year.  A talent like him is hard to replace.  There ARE some talented DB's in the portal if DL wants to go that way.

 

Sewell didn't have the best year but depending on what draft site you look at it, he is still projected as a late first rounder.  He probably goes.  I would be 100% certain if he had matched or exceeded last years production.  From ESPN:

I would also add Dorlus, DJ Johnson, maybe Ware-Hudson, and most of the offensive line to that list.

Gonzalez will be hard to replace but I've been impressed with Dontae Manning and Jahlil Florence.  Obviously, they will need to work on their technique and get more reps to continue to develop to their potential.  I'm sure that having Gonzalez around was extremely beneficial to the young CBs this year.  They saw what a top college CB does in film study, in practice, etc. to get ready to play on Saturdays.

 

It would also help the secondary if the defensive line could get more/any pressure on the QB.  We also need to upgrade the safety position, IMHO.

Oregon CB Christian Gonzalez lands in first round according to recent 2023 NFL Mock Draft

 

Oregon CB Christian Gonzalez continues to make waves in NFL draft circles as he remains a projected first-round draft pick.

 

In ESPN's most recent mock draft from Jordan Reid, Gonzalez falls to No. 21 to the Jacksonville Jaguars

to help provide impact potential in the secondary for the fringe playoff team.

 

"Tyson Campbell is a budding star at cornerback, but the Jaguars have struggled to find consistency on the other side,"

said Reid on Gonzalez's draft position.

Seems about right.  He was initially a 1st round pick before the 2022 season was played.
