The Oregon football team has developed solid depth at nearly every position, and the team is poised to make another run at the BCS title game in 2013.
Much of the recent success has come from instant-impact freshmen, guys who arrived on campus and began to make plays from Day 1.
Last year, it was Arik Armstead, Bralon Addison, DeForest Buckner and Byron Marshall, among others. The year before it was De'Anthony Thomas lighting up the Autzen scoreboard.
Who might have a similar impact in 2013? For the sake of avoiding semantics, we're including redshirt freshman as well.
Let's take a look at five young players who will have a major impact on next season.
Honorable mentions: WR Chance Allen (RSFr.), WR Darren Carrington, S Reggie Daniels (RSFr.), ATH Danny Mattingly. All four players are talented and could be major contributors someday, potentially next season.
