1. Ty Thompson
I know, I know, Oregon landed Bo Nix this month so it’s not like Ty Thompson is guaranteed to take the starting job next year, but it’d be nice to have some optimism about the position heading into the 2022 season.
The coaching staff has already said that Anthony Brown will be getting the start which was somewhat expected, but sprinkling in some Thompson would be good for the future and his development. If he plays and fares well against a team like Oklahoma, it would be a huge confidence boost and will make the impending quarterback battle even more intriguing.
Thompson should get some snaps behind Brown and maybe even split drives with the senior quarterback. While the current coaching staff won’t be there to dictate the quarterback battle this offseason, they have to realize that this would be the best thing for his development.
I’d like to see some Thompson plays on Wednesday night and maybe even some deep balls planned out for him.
Everyone wants to see what the Ducks have to compete with Nix in the offseason.
