Darron Thomas was a below average talent and Jeff Maehl was that WR. Neither of those players has ever played in the NFL. Maehl ran a 4.7 40 at the combine. Contrast that with the 4.25 DeAnthony Thomas. That team was not talented on offense outside of LaMichael James. This Oregon team is loaded at WR, TE, QB, and RB. They have NFL talent at every position. There is a big talent gap in the 2012 Oregon offense and the 2010 Oregon offense. They are much stronger up front, have more talent at RB, WR, and QB.
Stats do not equal talent. They are much more equipped to play a SEC team now as they'd be faster and have a very good DL now with Heimuli and Jordon being possible 1st rounders. At WR, Thomas is a 1st rounder, Huff is a midround pick, Bralon Addison it's too early to tell, but talent wise he's better than anyone they had in 2010. All 3 of their starting WR's run sub 4.4's, their three top RB's are sub 4.4's. This team is so fast in comparison to 2010.
I agree with the thought that Oregon 2012 > Oregon 2010. Main reason is more offensive playmakers (Mariota >>>>>>>>> Thomas) and a WAY better defense.
You can throw the West Virignia argument out the window a month ago.
You realize all these kids you think run sub 4.3's will run a 4.43 laser timed at the draft combine right?
