Oregon Ducks release first official depth chart for start of 2021 season

·9 min read

The first real sign that it is officially game week for the Oregon Ducks came on Monday morning, when the team released their first depth chart of the season.

While we are now less than a week away from the Ducks kicking off against Fresno State in Autzen Stadium on Saturday morning, fans now have a chance to see which players are going to be trotting out onto the field with the first team and getting the season underway.

The depth chart features a lot of names that we expected to see, and several that come as a surprise as well. Here is the two-deep depth chart for the Ducks at the start of the season:
