Oregon Ducks season preview
For Mark Packer, Oregon’s success begins with their starting quarterback, Marcus Mariota. Mariota turned down an opportunity to enter the NFL Draft in order to finish out his eligibility at Oregon.
“(Mariota) has a lot to work with: five offensive line starters return plus a running back corps of Byron Marshall and Thomas Tyner.
“The only issue on the offensive side may be at wide receiver, though Keanon Lowe is back. The question is who else steps up on the wide receiver corps.”
