Four Oregon football alumni were selected in the 2014 NFL draft—two on offense, two on defense.
Each of the four leaves a sizable void that head coach Mark Helfrich and staff must fill to remain in the hunt for the Pac-12 Championship.
Below is exactly what Oregon is faced with replacing.
Josh Huff, Wide Receiver
Drafted: No. 86 (Round 3), Philadelphia Eagles
2013 Stats: 62 receptions, 1,140 yards, 12 touchdowns
De'Anthony Thomas, Running Back
Drafted: No. 124 (Round 4), Kansas City Chiefs
2013 Stats: 96 carries, 594 yards, eight touchdowns; 22 receptions, 246 yards, one touchdown; 21 kick returns, 513 yards, one touchdown
Taylor Hart, Defensive End
Drafted: No. 141 (Round 5), Philadelphia Eagles
2013 Stats: 75 tackles, six tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, two quarterback hurries, three forced fumbles, five passes broken up
Terrance Mitchell, Cornerback
Drafted: No. 254 (Round 7), Dallas Cowboys
2013 Stats: 59 tackles, five interceptions (one returned for touchdown), seven passes broken up, one forced fumble
The Ducks will turn to both fresh faces and returning veterans to fill the gaps the program's four draftees left on their way to the NFL.
