With an defense as fast and lethal as their offense, the Oregon secondary has become perhaps the deepest, and strongest unit on the team.

Tom Hauck for ESPN.comLeon McQuay III would add another athletic element to Oregon.
The Ducks have improved athletically at the position and have some solid talent waiting in the wings. With an aggressive style that leaves the cornerbacks in man-coverage more often then not -- and safeties that provide a lot of run support -- the Ducks defensive backfield has become a desirable destination for recruits.

Finding players that fit the scheme has been easier than most other positions, and the results can be seen on the field each week. With three commitments from athletes who could also wind up on offense, the Ducks are still in search of one or two more defensive backs this year.
Oregon Improves To 7-1
