7 Ducks In 2024 NFL Combine Lineout

EUGENE, Ore. — Ducks quarterback Bo Nix and running back Bucky Irving are two of seven players in the University of Oregon’s football team in attendance at the Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis for the Combine 2024 NFL.

Defensive end Brandon Dorlus, wide receiver Troy Franklin, center Jackson Powers-Johnson, safety Evan Williams, and cornerback Khyree Jackson will add another five Oregon Ducks players to the combine. With last season’s 12-2 record, an improvement on head coach Dan Lanning’s first campaign at the helm, the 2023 season came to an end with the team moving up to the Big Ten Conference for 2024.

With 321 players invited to this year’s event, the seven-player assembly from Autzen Stadium is the highest total since 2020.  Experienced quarterback Bo Nix, who racked up an impressive 4508 passing yards and 45 touchdowns last season, is the player to watch. As a Heisman Trophy finalist in 2023, he is punted as a potential late first-round draft pick.


Bo Nix Talks About The 2024 NFL Lineout

What sets this young talent apart from some  fellow draftees is- in his words, “I go back to the processing; I go back to the preparation.” Nix believes that the ducks can go out there and spin it pretty good. They can all make throws.

While that’s what the ducks have in common, Nix says it’s also the intangibles they possess- the passion, processing, and preparation for the game that helps. With their love for the game and intensity, he says he thinks he delivers that at a really high level.


Lanning on Nix

On the 24-year-old Nix, who spent two years at Auburn before transferring to the University of Oregon in 2022, coach Dan Lanning had a lot of praise. Lanning sees Nix as a player who takes the game seriously. He works hard and he’s a great competitor on the field.

Lanning sees Nix as a winner-  the preparation is one of the things that sets him apart. Because of his competitive nature, NIx makes everyone better when he steps onto the practice field with what he demands of the people around him and the way he works. Nix graduated from Auburn so he gets to claim that part of it too, because he spent a lot of games at Auburn, but he says he’s claiming Oregon for as long as he can at the same time.

With his love for his Oregon career apparent after spending two incredible years there, Nix said, “Well, I’ll always be an Oregon Duck.”
