Oregon Ducks Shine in ESPN's All Playoff-Era Team: Recognizing the Top Players of the Decade

Looking back on the past decade of the College Football Playoff, the Oregon Ducks have stood out as one of the top teams in the sport. From their national championship game appearance in 2014 to the talented players who have graced their roster, the Ducks have made a mark on college football.

With spring football just around the corner, ESPN compiled their "All Playoff-Era Team," recognizing the best players from the last 10 years. It's no surprise that several Oregon Ducks found their names on the list, either as first-team selections, second-team standouts, or honorable mentions.

Among those mentioned was Marcus Mariota, the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback who has left a lasting legacy at Oregon. His talent and leadership on the field rightfully earn him a spot on the honorable mention list.

Another standout player from Oregon's roster is the first-ever Pac-12 player to win the Rimington Trophy, which recognizes the best center in the nation. While being named an honorable mention is commendable, his contributions to the team deserve even more recognition.

Arguably one of the greatest offensive linemen in Ducks history, Penei Sewell earned the 1st team LT spot on the All-Playoff team. His skill and impact on the field solidify his place among the elite players of the past decade.

Kayvon Thibodeaux, known for his stellar career with the Ducks and success in the NFL, finds himself in esteemed company on the All-Playoff team. Despite the strong competition ahead of him, Thibodeaux's talent and dedication shine through.

Jevon Holland, a standout safety for both the Ducks and the Dolphins in the NFL, showcases the impact of Oregon players at the next level. His presence on the field was sorely missed after his graduation, highlighting his contributions to the team.

As we reflect on the achievements and talents of these remarkable players, it's clear that the Oregon Ducks have left an indelible mark on college football over the past decade. Their success and dedication serve as a testament to the rich legacy of the program and the players who have donned the green and yellow.
