Chris: Over the weekend, the Oregon coaching staff conducted a “draft” to determine who the two sides would be come Saturday. While Kelly said that the spring rosters won’t be finalized and made available to the public until Wednesday, Kenjon Barner revealed that Bryan Bennett will be his quarterback, while quarterback Marcus Mariota and running back De'Anthony Thomas will lead the opposing team.
Rob: There is one more practice, Wednesday, before Oregon plays its spring game on Saturday. Rosters have been determined after the coaches held a draft over the weekend, but Chip Kelly said today they won't be finalized and publicized until at least Wednesday, in case any last tweaks are needed due to injuries or the like.
