Highlights: It was one of those days for Marcus Mariota, who had a number of beautiful touchdown passes over the course of the morning. The best might have been one thrown on the run, rolling to his right, to a wide-open Bralon Addison over the middle. … But it wasn't a perfect morning for Mariota, who was intercepted by Terrance Mitchell early in the day. … Byron Marshall and Thomas Tyner looked particularly explosive in rushing drills, De'Anthony Thomas took the first rep in kickoff return drills to the house, and pass-rush drills featured dominant reps by Jake Fisher, Hroniss Grasu and Ricky Havili-Heimuli.

■ Andrew Greif has a nice story on how Ifo Ekpre-Olomu makes his family proud.
“It's just something special,” Ifo said of his background. “I can share different culture, especially when I have my own family.”
As the second son in a family already with two sisters, Ifo completed the symmetry; he fit well. His name befits his accomplishments for No. 5 Oregon, too, where he completes a beaten but undaunted defense, and his projected fit in the NFL, where he’s a likely first-round pick in May should he forgo his senior season.
