AP Photo/Joe ImelLouisville, Ky., wide receiver James Quick is one of Oregon's top wide receiver targets.With an offense as fast and lethal as Oregon's, it might seem odd that the three-time defending conference champions are in need of more weapons.
The one thing the Ducks have been missing in the Chip Kelly era is a truly elite wide receiver. Jeff Maehl and LaVasier Tuinei both had great hands and were great leaders who bought into the Ducks' system. What they didn't have was breakaway speed.
The Ducks have improved athletically at the position and have some solid young talent waiting in the wings. That said, they are still in search of that go-to game-breaker on the outside.
