Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Ted Miller explains his reasoning behind selecting Lavasier Tuinei as being the player who Oregon will miss most (biggest shoes to fill.) Lot of Duck fans evidently had objections to his choice, me included.

Rob Moseley previews the linebackers heading into spring practice.

The big question on the two-deep probably involves the backup to Boseko Lokombo. Keloni Kamalani is a walk-on who has made a lot of plays on special teams in his career, but doesn't have a ton of defensive experience. Tyson Coleman and Carlyle Garrick are big-time athletes, but they faced a steep learning curve at the position. Sophomore Derrick Malone played SAM as a redshirt in 2010 before moving to WILL last season, and he could no doubt shift back outside if necessary. Or, there's Rahim Cassell, among the most impressive of Oregon's 2011 redshirts, according to coaches. Cassell could fill in at any of the three spots, and will be one to watch in 2012.

Aaron Fentress previews the running backs where he believes depth is an issue.

Mark Flores posted his weekly recruiting update.

The Heisman Pundit takes look at 12 players who could explode in 2012. You'll find Kenjon Barner and De'Anthony Thomas on their list.

Thomas is obviously an interesting case since he is such an all-around dynamo. Last year, he had just 140 touches, with 39 of them coming in the return game...we are probably talking about the most exciting player in the country and a legit Heisman candidate.
