As former Oregon Ducks linebacker Troy Dye prepares for the next level, he's made his first big decision: His representation.

Capital Sports Advisers has represented three first overall picks, 14 top-10 selections, two Hall of Famers, 14 pro Bowlers and 13 All-Pros.

Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield as well as former Oregon Ducks Jake Fisher and Evan Baylis are represented by CSA. 

In 2019, Dye's senior tour has featured 81 tackles and 2.5 sacks and two interceptions.

As a freshman in 2016, Dye played on a team that finished 4-8 and left out of a bowl game. Fast forward to 2020 where Dye is led an 11-2 team and was just 6 tackles away from reaching 400 career tackles.

Here's what The Draft Network had to say about Dye:

He demonstrates very good reactive athleticism for the position. He is a run and hit, down hill linebacker that quickly diagnoses run/pass. He does a good job communicating with shifts and motions. He easily navigates through trash and is an excellent chase player when he is not play-side against the run. Has good athleticism and awareness to drop in space and does a very good job of getting underneath inside receivers and carrying a TE up a seam. 

Dye is in for a big payday. Many Draft projections slate Dye to go on Day 2 of the NFL Draft in either Round 2 or 3. He could improve that Draft stock between now and then that could make his a potential first round pick.
