Duck Stuff: Morning Mud

Morning Mud has your Tuesday practice report.

Highlights: There was a lot of good stuff both ways in an 11-on-11 situation late in the day focusing on third down. The defense put a cap on its strong day overall with a Dior Mathis pass breakup, another ball that Tyson Coleman tipped at the line and Arik Armstead intercepted, and several other stops.

But the offense converted some chances as well. Royce Freeman got the offensive sideline hooting when he cut off a Tyrell Crosby block and knifed through the defense. Morgan Mahalak rolled out of the pocket and found Jalen Brown open deep. Byron Marshall had a couple of impressive runs, and Jeff Lockie completed passes to Austin Daich and Darren Carrington.

■ Tyson Alger breaks down the fall camp DB position group.

■ TE Johnny Mundt is more focused in his sophomore year.

■ Charles Fisher spent some quality time with the team on Monday at media day.

■ ATQ has Max Unger in the #7 slot for their "20 in 20" series.

■ Rob Moseley looks at a friendship that goes well beyond the depth chart.

In the ultra-competitive world of college football, battles for playing time don’t always make for the friendliest of relationships among guys at the same position. Quarterbacks, as one of the smallest position groups on the team, tend to be an exception. But even in that regard, the relationship between [Marcus] Mariota and [Jeff] Lockie is unique.
