Latest News

Recent News analyst Lance Zierlein writes that Oregon junior LB Troy Dye was "flashing non-stop" during his film study.
Zierlein was actually breaking down film on Jalen Jelks and Justin Hollins, but Dye kept catching his eye. Notes the analyst of the 6-foot-4, 224-pound Ducks standout, "Extremely athletic, downhill linebacker plays with good feel for finding the runner. He can cover and he can really run." Zierlein would like to see Dye add bulk for the NFL, but there's intrigue here regardless. Whether he will be able to crack a Day 1 selection remains to be seen. The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard sees him as a fringe candidate for Round 1, but believes that Mack Wilson and Devin White will be the only linebackers drafted on the first day of April festivities.

Troy Dye - LB - Ducks

The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard does not believe that more than two linebackers will be selected on Day 1 of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Alabama's Mack Wilson and LSU's Devin White are the two linebackers considered Day 1 locks. Beyond that, color Ledyard skeptical. For the sake of the hypothetical, the two additional names he sees as potentially in play would be Oregon's Troy Dye and Florida's Vosean Joseph. Writes the analyst, "I think both have a long way to go, but at least there is potential and athleticism there, two things the NFL really values in second level defenders." He ultimately views both Dye and Joseph as value stretches for Day 1.

NFL Media's Lance Zierlein lists Oregon junior LB Troy Dye fifth among his top linebackers for 2018.

The inside linebacker position is loaded in 2018, and Dye is one of the best of the group. "Dye really separates himself from some of the other linebackers who are not on this list with his athletic talent and ability to range in pass coverage," he writes. "He has the lateral quickness to stay ahead of climbing blockers as well as the burst to shoot gaps and make tackles in the backfield." Dye has two years left, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see him in the NFL if he puts up another solid season for the Ducks this fall.

Oregon junior LB Troy Dye was named to the Lott IMPACT Award Watch List for the upcoming season.

Dye (6'4/221) was the lone Oregon defender on the watch list. The Lott Award is handed out to recognize all-around performance by the nation's top defensive performer on and off the field. The junior linebacker is looking to build on a 2017 season in which he was named All-Pac-12 second-team on the strength of a muscular 107 tackles (14.0 for loss), four sacks and four passes defended. He's been a lynchpin in Oregon's efforts to improve a defense that was left in shambles by Mark Helfrich and staff when they were swept out the door following the 2016 season.
