Former Oregon stars are taking the field in Eugene for a final time to show off their skills to NFL coaches and scouts. After the 2024 NFL Combine, the Ducks draft stock soared and this is yet another chance to continue that meteoric rise.

Pro Days are held across the country by various schools and are a more relaxed version of the combine. 

Oregon’s Pro Day will start at 10 a.m. PT and is going to be held at the Moshofsky Center.

Everyone who took part in the NFL Combine; Bo Nix, Troy Franklin, Bucky Irving, Jackson Powers-Johnson, Evan Williams, Khyree Jackson, and Brandon Dorlus, is expected to be in attendance. 

Other former Ducks who weren’t invited to the combine also have the chance to work out at the Pro Day; Steven Jones, Steve Stephens IV, Jamal Hill, and more.

How to watch Oregon’s 2024 Pro Day:

  • Date & Time: March 12 at 10 a.m. PT
  • Location: Moshofksy Center, Eugene, OR
  • TV & Streaming: NFL Network, Fubo TV

The big question heading into today is if all of these Ducks can bolster their stock or not. Much like the NFL Combine, players have the choice to participate in drills such as the 40-yard dash and other various measurables.

Irving fell on the slower end of the running back group at the combine and could therefore benefit from running a better time at the Pro Day. Jackson Powers-Johnson and Bo Nix, who both declined to run the 40-yard dash in Indy could also benefit.

Meanwhile, players like Troy Franklin and Khyree Jackson who ran impressive times in the dash, may not want to risk running a slower time in Eugene.

One player I am interested in at Oregon’s Pro Day is kicker Camden Lewis who hasn’t had many public appearances since the Ducks’ win over Liberty in their bowl game. If Lewis can perform well in Eugene, I think that he could be a great pick for an NFL team in desperate need of a kicker. 

Similarly, I’m excited to see Popo Aumavae, Mase Funa, and Casey Rogers get another chance to show off their skills since they weren’t invited to the combine this year.
