PLAYERS: Dion Jordan
TEAMS: Oregon Ducks
University of Oregon senior Dion Jordan has been named to the watch list for the Ted Hendricks Defensive End of the Year award, it was announced Monday.

A 6-7, 241-pounder from Chandler, Ariz., Jordan is one of six Pac-12 players and 40 overall on the preseason list. He also enters his final college season on watch lists for the Bednarik Award (defense), Rotary Lombardi Award (lineman) and Bronko Nagurski Trophy (defense).

Jordan, who began his collegiate career as a receiver and tight end for the Ducks, earned first-team all-conference honors last season after rating fifth in the Pac-12 in quarterback sacks (7.5) and seventh in tackles for loss (13). He recorded all but 1.5 of his sack total over UO's final seven games in 2011.

If anyone or anything is to stop them, it's probably going to be of their own doing. The Ducks have 5-2 odds to win the North Division, with California (4-1) and Washington ...

The five most crucial questions for the Ducks, and the likely answers

With a week until preseason camp opens, there's no time for paens to winning the day. 2012 could set up like 2010.  The Ducks return a strong lineup but have some big question marks. Like 2010 they're blessed with a favorable early schedule, no big tests out of conference. This year they don't leave the Northwest in the first five games, four in Autzen, and a neutral...
