Armstead to enter NFL Draft
The first domino has fallen for Oregon this offseason. Just one day after the Ducks fell to Ohio State in the College Football Playoff National Championship game, junior defensive end Arik Armstead announced that he will forego his senior season and enter the NFL Draft according to a report from GoDucks.com. "After three years preparing with my teammates and coaches, I feel I'm ready to test myself at the next level," Armstead said in the report. "All the support I've received from Coach [Don] Pellum and Coach [Ron] Aiken, the rest of the Oregon coaches and staff and in my academics has prepared me to make this jump." Armstead helped anchor the defensive line this season as the Ducks won a school-record 13 games en route to its second appearance in a national championship game in four years. He finished the season with 46 tackles (25 solo), 5 1/2 tackles for loss and 2 1/2 sacks, and had nine tackles in what was his last game in a Ducks uniform on Monday night against the Buckeyes. A long, athletic prospect listed at 6-foot-8, 290-pounds, Armstead promises to be one of the more intriguing players in the draft this year.
