The Oregon Ducks do not have a great history of contributing NFL talent at the quarterback position. The list of relevant contributors begins with Dan Fouts and the remaining names are journeymen such as A.J. Feely and Kellen Clemens, and draft day busts like Akili Smith and Joey Harrington. Marcus Mariota still has his truthers, but we are a dying breed. This backdrop raises a question: will Justin Herbert break the Oregon mold and become a star QB in the NFL?

College Production

Justin Herbert’s three rushing touchdowns to lead the Ducks to a Rose Bowl victory provide a snippet of the athleticism and leadership that make up Herbert’s repertoire. But even in this one game, Herbert showed some of the potential challenges, throwing for only 138 yards on 20 attempts with no touchdowns and an interception. 

Herbert was a lightly recruited three-star prospect from Eugene, and the 26th ranked pro-style QB.  He took over the starting role during the Week 5 loss to Washington State his freshman year, and never looked back. Herbert played in 43 games for the Ducks.
