2. Oregon is one of the most complete teams in the country
If you look at what Oregon brings to the table this season, they’re easily one of the most complete teams in all of college football.
The Ducks have an offense that could be explosive with Anthony Brown leading the way for arguably the best receiving corps in the conference and a top-tier backfield. Plus, the offensive line should be even better this season, adding Bram Walden, Kinglsey Suamataia, and Jackson Light to the mix. This offense is going to put up some points this year.
Defensively, despite the loss of Andy Avalos to Boise State, the Ducks hired one of the best minds in college football on that side of the ball in Cal’s Tim DeRuyter. He turned the Golden Bears’ defense into one of the best in the Pac-12 and now he has more talent to work with.
Oregon’s defense might end up being the best in the Pac-12 this season because it’s absolutely loaded at every position. I see the linebacking corps being the best in the conference and one of the best in the entire country along with an elite defensive backfield.
There might not be a more complete team in the Pac-12 than Oregon and the Ducks stack up well with college football’s elite.
