Despite losing three of their top four receivers, the Ducks looked fine here until Bralon Addison blew out his knee in spring practices. Addison was a budding star and will be missed. Keanon Lowe, now the leading returning receiver with 18 receptions, is more a No. 2 guy. There are options, though they are unproven. Dwayne Stanford is back from a knee injury, and Darren Carrington had a good spring. Chance Allen and speedster Devon Allen -- no relation -- are intriguing talents. And maybe B.J. Kelly finally breaks through? Or freshmen Jalen Brown and Charles Nelson make an immediate impact?
