News:Daryle Hawkins took four catches for 28 yards to led the Ducks in receiving Thursday night as Oregon downed Arizona State 43-21 on the road in Tempe.
Analysis: With quarterback Marcus Mariota throwing just 12 passes all evening and Oregon rushing for 406 or its 454 total offensive yards on the night, both receptions and yards after the catch were difficult for Ducks wideouts to come by in Thursday's win.
News: Oregon announced after Monday's practice that former quarterback Daryle Hawkins had been moved to wide receiver. This isn't a particularly stunning development as Hawkins has played a fair amount of wide receiver the last two years -- in addition to quarterback and running back.
Coach Chip Kelly said that staff felt that wide receiver was the most likely spot that Hawkins could make an impact with the team. Given the hunt for productive receivers, it's a good move for Hawkins.
News: A year after battling to the final day to win the starting quarterback job at Oregon, Darron Thomas is now absolute commander of the Duck offense. A look at what the future might hold, as well as an overview of Oregon's quarterback depth, offers a glimpse of what might be if Thomas goes down.
Analysis: At this point, Bryan Bennett is the undisputed backup to Thomas. Dustin Haines and Brian Doty appear headed for scout team duty, so that question becomes who is the third-stringer -- Daryle Hawkins? It's a question the Ducks will look to answer this fall.
