Versatility has long been a calling card of the Oregon defense, and redshirt junior Christian French promises to continue the tradition in 2014.
Per Rob Moseley of GoDucks.com, French is seeing first-string repetitions as a SAM linebacker, where he is exhibiting "quickness in pass-rush drills."
Via The Register-Guard, he's also played first-team defensive end. Either way, French is building on the foundation of a promising effort in last December's 30-7 Alamo Bowl win over Texas.
New Ducks defensive coordinator Don Pellum has options with French, but he can be central to Oregon's run-stopping efforts in any role.
