Oregon Ducks Football Spring Practice: Five Players To Watch

3 of 7

Royce Freeman, Running Back

Running Back Royce Freeman became a household name in 2015 for the Oregon Ducks and their fans. Freeman showed his durability all season and ran for over 1800 yards, besting his Freshman season. He was also nominated for several National Awards, including the Doak Walker Award given to the Nation’s Best Running Back.

Freeman averaged over 6 yards per carry and scored 17 touchdowns last season. He caught just two. With Prukop looking like a running Quarterback we don’t know how this will impact Freeman’s numbers for the upcoming season, but two big Offensive weapons in the backfield is not a bad problem to have.

Shifting to Defense, one player who could help ease the blow of losing DeForest Buckner is Hunter Kampmoyer
