This wasn’t much of a game, except for a brief time in the 3rd quarter. Oregon, led by Dion Jordan, dominated the Wildcats. The Ducks have multiple prospects that are worth taking a look.

#15 WR Dan Buckner
-lined up outside on the plays I could see
-turned a negative into a positive on a blown up screen, made a guy miss to pick up extra yards.
-very long athlete
-clearly frustrated after near TD in the endzone. Hard to tell, at who the frustration was aimed.
Overview: Difficult game to scout for Buckner. Wasn’t involved much in a huge passing day for Foles.
#31 HB Taimi Tutogi
-lined up at fullback, halfback and TE
-lined up at TE, failed to get any kind of push
-turns defender and walls him off on running play
-as FB tries to block, goes with head to the ground and gets thrown aside
-shows skill at pass pro in the backfield, picked up correct man on blitz/missed block
Overview: Doesn’t lack effort. Rarely misses a block, just won’t hold it for very long. Handled the ball a few plays running and as a receiver. Skills are limited.
#68 LT Mickey Baucus*
-huge prospect, can add weight on the monster frame.
-forced #96 inside to help
-overextends, gets beat with a slap
-has trouble adjusting to speed outside
-begins to guess what defender will do. instead of engaging, waits for defender to make move
-successful chip, then walled off defender at 2nd level
-received more help in 2nd half, had TE and FB to his side.
-looked confused with blitz pickup.
Overview: Young, massive offensive tackle prospect. This game was early in his redshirt freshman season, so I expect improvement. Has some tools, just needs to learn his body and how to use it. Film will help as well, needs to see what he’s doing wrong.
#76 OC Kyle Quinn
-pushed back 3 yards into ball carrier
-struggles to get push in run game
-sits into stance and delivers nice blow in pass pro
-lunged to get push on defender
-turned 66 away from play, running back ran right off the block for a TD
-sold screen well, worked downfield and made nice open field block
-DT throws him aside, makes play behind line of scrimmage.
Overview: Struggles in the run game. Average in pass pro. Needs to get stronger in all areas of his game.
