Naming the biggest winners from Oregon's 2023 Pro Day

 

The Oregon Ducks 2023 Pro Day took place on Tuesday morning at the Moshofsky Center in Eugene. It was a toned down version of the NFL Combine, where 12 former Ducks took the field in front of a large group of NFL scouts to show what they can do.

 

Various players went through a couple of jumps, the 40-yard dash, cone drills, and on-field position drills.

 

In the end, their afternoon of work was boiled down to a large set of numbers, and a few pages of notes written in a notebook that several scouts will take back home to their respective coaches.

Instant takeaways from Oregon's 2023 Pro Day

 

All 12 participated in some of the drills, with players like Cota, Williams, Johnson, Battles, and Barry participating in all drills.


As for measurement drills, Oregon's athletes took part in the 40-yard dash, vertical, broad jump, and three-cone drill. 


Gonzalez, Sewell, Bass, Aumavae-Laulu, Johnson, and Forysth all took part in the 2023 NFL Combine this past week in Indianapolis with Forysth not running due to a hamstring injury.


Of the six participants, the duo of Gonzalez and Sewell are most likely to be selected in the first two days of the draft process. Gonzalez, after a combine performance that included a 4.38 40 time, is widely considered a first-round draft pick and is likely to be selected in the top 10.

 

In today's article, I'll be breaking down my instant reactions from Oregon's Pro Day, including some risers and fallers in draft stock.

This would be fantastic. Eagles are running into salary cap issues and what Darius Slay is asking is a little too rich. Gonzo would like this team.

Assessing Jordon Riley's performance at Oregon Pro Day

 

Oregon Ducks defensive lineman Jordon Riley was most likely not on NFL scouts’ immediate radar, but after the Oregon Pro Day event held inside the Moshofsky Center, Riley might now be a blip on that radar screen.

 

The big 6-foot-5, 338-pounder showed his speed and agility with good times in the 40-yard dash and in the 10-yard split. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to show his strength as he skipped the bench presses.

Oregon defensive lineman Jordon Riley had a nice Pro Day and now scouts have the big 338-pounder on their radar.

 

 

 

Assessing Ryan Walk's performance at Oregon Pro Day

 

There are many reasons to have these so-called “Pro Days” at various campuses nationwide. NFL scouts get to see up close what the potential draft picks can do and write down whatever measurements they need to in order to make a decision come draft time.

 

But sometimes an athlete catches their eye that the scouts weren’t necessarily expecting to shine. Oregon offensive lineman Ryan Walk may have been one of those athletes.

 

DUCKSWIRE.USATODAY.COM

Ryan Walk’s impressive pro day may have improved his standing among the NFL scouts who attended the event in the Mo Center.

Christian Gonzalez lands with new team in Mel Kiper's Mock Draft 3.0

 

Kiper has the Las Vegas Raiders grabbing Gonzalez with the No. 8 pick in the draft.

 

In this scenario, the Raiders don’t get any of the top four quarterbacks, forcing them to go with the best prospect available. 

 

The player who can most help them win in 2023 is Gonzalez, who ran a blazing 4.38-second 40-yard dash at the combine, backing up what I saw on his 2022 tape. At 6-foot-1, he has outstanding ball skills and elite recovery speed. This is a clear need area for Las Vegas.

Christian Gonzalez is once again projected to land inside the top 10 of the 2023 NFL Draft. This time, Kiper has him landing with a...

Alex Forsyth NFL Draft 2023: Scouting Report for Oregon IOL

 

Alex Forsyth is a three-year starter inside Oregon's multiple run game. He made 28 starts at center and spent time as a reserve at both guard spots and right tackle. He's a renowned teammate and leader inside the locker room with excellent football character. Physically, he has a lean, narrow build with solid movement skills and middling raw power.

 

Forsyth wins with efficiency in his footwork and use of hands as a run- and pass-blocker. In the run game, he gets into his fits with sound hat and hand placement on combination and back blocks to create quick leverage on defenders.

 

There is a lot more in the scouting report in this article...

Draft analyst says Noah Sewell might be "overhyped" as draft approaches

 

After the 2021 season, Noah Sewell was on the top of his game. He led the Ducks in nearly every defensive statistical category. Although that season ended poorly with losses to Utah in the Pac-12 title game and Oklahoma in the Alamo Bowl, it wasn’t because Sewell wasn’t playing well.

 

But then a coaching change occurred, a new defensive system was installed and for some reason, Sewell suffered for it. His stats went down. Not only did they go down, but they were also cut in half and it wasn’t because of playing time.

 

Why that happened isn’t exactly clear, but it wasn’t a shock to see Sewell declare for the NFL draft. Now with the scouts getting an up-close look at him, the hype train surrounding Sewell might have left with him still on the platform.

 

According to USA Today’s Draft Wire writer Jeff Risdon, Sewell might be a bit overhyped. Here are the reasons given.

After a down season in 2022 statistically, Noah Sewell’s draft stock took a bit of a hit. Now, USA Today’s Draft Wire says he...
