EUGENE, Ore. -- Eddie Vanderdoes (Auburn, Calif./Placer) lived up to the hype. In fact, he exceeded it.
Everyone knew the 6-foot-3, 303-pound defensive lineman and No. 57 player in the ESPN 150 was going to be the top talent at Sunday's Oregon NFTC. But in the final stop of the 12-city NFTC tour, he went out and turned in one of the best performances of the year. When the dust settled, Vanderdoes was the only player to earn an invite to The Opening in July.
