Oregon sophomore linebacker Troy Dye also was named to a prestigious watch list of his own. Dye was listed on the Chuck Bednarik watch list.

Last season the true freshman was one of the bright spots on a depleted Oregon defense. This season Dye is expected to move from outside linebacker to inside linebacker for Jim Leavitt and his new Oregon defense.
