SPRING PROJECTION: QB: Marcus Mariota, Jr.; Jeff Lockie, So.; Jake Rodrigues, So.; Damion Hobbs, RFr.; Taylor Alie, RFr.
The Ducks welcome Mariota back with open arms, after he passed up the chance to enter the NFL draft. He’ll look to improve his consistency as a passer in 2014, and can also clean up his ball security in the run game. Lockie and Rodrigues thus face the prospect of another year battling to be the backup; the possibility of guys in that position seeking a transfer can’t be discounted, though neither has publicly expressed interest in doing so. Hobbs and Alie also will continue their development in April practices.
