WOW, Oregon fans are trashing Breeze:
“I thank Breeze and the family for the sacrifices they’ve made, but come on, prepare for the draft? Okay, I guess, but that’s a pipe dream. He’s a minus athlete for a pro LINEBACKER, let alone safety.”
“Really liked what Breeze brought as a team guy, and he was great on special teams, but I give him a 0% chance of getting drafted. I know he had a great Rose Bowl, but he was pretty average throughout his career and NFL teams don’t draft players they think can only really contribute on special teams (they are UFA). Honestly, Breeze probably already graduated, would still have to work his butt off to earn a starting spot and just didn’t feel this season would be all that valuable to him – and who knows if he was fully healthy heading into this month. Not wanting to be a downer, just realistic.”
“I’m like the rest and that I just don’t see it. He better go run quicker than 4.6 in the combine and he’ll be sliding all the way out of the draft. And on tape he just is not that fast looking.”
Sheesh, wasn’t Breeze their Rose Bowl MVP? No way he was going to match that this season. His draft stock isn’t getting any higher so it makes sense for him to move on. Maybe their fans should take a hint from their players. If this many Oregon players are opting out it’s because they know Oregon isn’t going to be as good as they were last season and they don’t want to stay on a sinking ship.
