Day two of the 2020 NFL Draft is officially in the books.
One surprising takeaway through the first three rounds of this draft is seeing one name in particular still there: Troy Dye.
The Oregon Ducks linebacker, who is the first Duck to lead the team in tackles every season in his four-year career at Oregon, was a projected late third-round pick by several mock drafts, but no team has pulled the trigger yet.
Social media, along with Dye himself, took notice:
Man, whoever drafts LB Troy Dye soon will be getting a hell of a linebacker.

However, it may not take long into Saturday morning to hear Dye's name be called as he is the seventh best available prospect, according to Mel Kiper:
Oregon LB Troy Dye will start the fourth round of the #NFLDraft2020 as Mel Kiper's 7th best available prospect.

Round 4 begins Saturday morning at 9 a.m. (PT) with the Cincinnati Bengals picking first.
