2. Chase Cota
There was a lot of chatter leading up to the spring game about how Oregon was set at receiver, and Chase Cota would only be providing depth after transferring in from UCLA. Well, that theory has been turned on its ear.
Cota, playing for the green team, caught six passes for 100 yards, according to Duck Territory at 247Sports.
Most of his grabs also weren’t those of the garden variety. Cota made several plays in the air, out-leveraging defenders and making 50-50 balls look like a guaranteed certainty.
If he continues to play at that level, there is no doubt that he’ll be in the starting lineup when Oregon opens against the Georgia Bulldogs.
