Pro Football Focus compared Oregon TE Pharaoh Brown to Oakland Raiders TE Jared Cook.

"Cook has never been the primary receiving option for an offense but he’s been a reliable one with the ability to stretch the middle of the field;" writes the outlet. "Brown was capable of stretching the middle of the field prior to suffering his injury, if he’s able to get back toward that form he should be able to fulfill a similar role." In reference to Brown's injury history, the 6-foot-5, 255-pounder missed the entirety of the 2015 season after suffering a severe leg injury in November of 2014, one which required three surgeries and almost led to an amputation. Brown returned after a lengthy rehab to record a 33-426-5 receiving line for the past season. PFF believes that he "makes for an intriguing late-round or undrafted option for a team willing to show him some patience."

Oregon redshirt freshman QB Terry Wilson will transfer.

This according to Jen Beyrele of The Oregonian. Beyrele additionally relays that Wilson informed Ducks HC Willie Taggart of his decision on Friday. A four-star recruit for the 2016 cycle, the 6-foot-3, 187-pounder was on the outside looking in on the depth chart, as Justin Herbert assumed starting duties midway through the 2016 season and is likely to start for Oregon when the 2017 campaign boots off. Should Wilson transfer to another FBS program, he would have to sit out a year to satisfy NCAA regulations.

Clemson redshirt senior DT Scott Pagano transferred to Oregon as a graduate.

The 6-foot-3, 295-pound defensive tackle picked the Ducks over a host of potential suitors that included Notre Dame, Arkansas, Cal, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas. A former four-star who went on to be a valuable rotational piece for Clemson, Pagano figures to start immediately for an Oregon defense that desperately needed him.

Oregon TE Johnny Mundt met with the 49ers and Rams.

The 6-foot-4, 243-pounder posted a 4.74s 40-yard dash, a 30-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-5 broad jump at his pro day workout. He's coming off a career-high receiving line of 23-334-4. Odds are that he'll go undrafted.

The Seattle Seahawks will put Oregon TE Johnny Mundt through a private workout.

Mundt measured into pro day festivities at 6-foot-4, 243 pounds. He went on to record athletic testing marks which included a 4.74s 40-yard dash, a 30-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-5 broad jump. His final season at Oregon proved to be his most productive, as he logged 23 catches for 334 yards and four touchdowns during the 2016 campaign. He will likely have to try for an NFL roster as an undrafted free agent.

Oregon junior RB Taj Griffin (knee) has been limited in the early going of spring practice.

Griffin suffered a knee injury late in the 2016 campaign and is still working his way back from that injury concern. Count this as a temporary depth blow for the Ducks. Royce Freeman and Tony Brooks-James are going to be RB1 and RB2, respectively, in what should be one of the best rushing attacks in the Pac-12 during the coming season.
Apr 6 - 7:52 PM

Oregon G Cameron Hunt will visit the Denver Broncos during the first week of April.

Hat tip to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline for this nugget. During his pro day earlier in March, the 6-foot-3, 307-pounder notched a 40-yard dash time of 5.47 seconds, hoisted the bar 24 times on the bench press and put in a vertical leap of 23.5 inches. He will likely have to find his way onto an NFL roster as an undrafted free agent.

He will be eligible to play immediately come the start of the 2017 campaign.

247Sports' Ryan Bartow reports that 32 teams have contacted transferring Clemson graduate DT Scott Pagano.

Well that didn't take long. News of Pagano's transfer intentions broke on Friday. Almost immediately, a veritable wave of programs contacted him in the hopes to lure him over. Among the teams name-checked by Bartow, LSU, Washington, North Carolina, Oregon, Oklahoma, Ohio State and Georgia (among many, many others). Bartow passes along that Pagano plans on making a few visits before he decides on his final collegiate home. This past season, the 6-foot-3, 295-pounder registered 31 tackles (4.5 for loss) and two sacks in 12 games played. He started four of those contests.

Oregon will reinstate suspended strength and conditioning coach Irele Oderinde on Sunday.

Oderinde was hit with a one-month suspension sans pay following a series of grueling January workouts which forced three Duck student-athletes to be hospitalized. Moving forward, Oderinde will report to the director of performance and sport science in the athletic department, rather than HC Willie Taggart.

Oregon hired former San Francisco 49ers' offensive coordinator Michael Johnson Sr. as wide receivers coach.

The post opened earlier this month when Jimmie Dougherty left Oregon for UCLA. That Johnson Sr. would take it is something of a surprise, as he'd been rumored to be heading to Michigan in an analyst role. Johnson Sr.'s employment status has been a topic of fierce debate over the past week, coming to a head when Paul Finebaum accused Jim Harbaugh of cheating for hiring him. Harbaugh shot back by calling Finebaum "Pete Finebaum" and an "SEC water carrier." All the drama stems from the fact that Johnson Sr.’s son, Michael Johnson Jr., is the top-rated dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2019.

Clemson junior DT Scott Pagano will transfer as a graduate.

Pagano asked for his release from the program and intends to play elsewhere next season. As a graduate, he'll be eligible if he transfers to another FBS program. "I met with Scott Pagano yesterday," Swinney said. "We had a good talk and he told me about his intentions to be a graduate transfer for his final year of eligibility. I told him to think about it overnight." Pagano was the No. 104 player in the nation by Rivals coming out of the prep ranks. In 12 games (and four starts) in 2016, he converted 299 snaps into 31 tackles, 4.5 TFL and two sacks.

Michigan will hire former San Francisco 49ers' offensive coordinator Michael Johnson.

We don't yet know what role the Wolverines have in mind for Johnson, but all their on-field coaching positions are currently filled. As for Johnson, he's currently the head coach at King's Academy, a California high school. What's interesting about that is that his best player, a prospect Michigan has its eyes on, is his son. Johnson's son Michael Jr. is considered by some to be the top dual-threat quarterback in his class. He's entering his junior season of high school and will enter college in the fall of 2019.

Oregon hired Oklahoma State RB coach Marcus Arroyo as co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

Specifically, Arroyo will be Oregon’s passing game coordinator. Arroyo becomes the replacement for David Reaves, who resigned not long after he was hired due to a DUI arrest. The 37-year-old Arroyo spent two seasons as Oklahoma State’s running backs coach after coaching QBs for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014.
