Junior Byron Marshall has become a hybrid in a sense for the Oregon Ducks Offense, picking up the slack for Bralon Addison who was lost to injury before the season even began. His last two seasons have been key to the Ducks success, with two one-thousand yard seasons, one on the ground, the other through the air. In 2014 he caught seventy-four passes for one-thousand three yards. The previous year he rushed for one-thousand thirty eight yards.

Some other notables on the list for the Biletneikoff award includes six from the Pac-12 Conference along with Georgia State Wide Receiver Donovan Harden who will face the Ducks at Autzen in the third week of the season according to GoDucks.com.

Byron Marshall and Addison will look to lead the Oregon Ducks Receiving Corps in 2015 along with Dwayne Stanford, Devon Allen, and Darren Carrington. The Ducks also welcome the Freshman Receiving Class from 2015 with the additions of Jalen Brown and Alex Ofodile.

Oregon begins Fall Camp on August 15th and will begin the regular season on Saturday, September 5th hosting Eastern Washington at Autzen Stadium. (5pm PT, Pac-12 Networks)
