Defensively, the line was able to get plenty of pressure on the quarterbacks, forcing hurried, and often inaccurate, throws. The line as a whole were the most impressive but the secondary also looked soild, making junior quarterback Darron Thomas eat up precious time in the pocket.
Though many of the same basic drills were being performed, the Ducks focused plenty on special teams during the morning session. Junior running backs LaMichael James and Kenjon Barner were returning kicks while other position players focused on fumble recovery drills.
The backups also received plenty of reps as they fight for playing time in the offense. Freshman quarterback Bryan Bennett took many snaps during simulated plays and hooked up with freshman Dior Mathis for a big gain in one of the more notable plays of practice.
Finally, freshman running back De'Anthony Thomas continued his productive camp, receiving some snaps with the first team offense.
