Marcus Mariota

Quarterback | Oregon

Marcus Mariota is a big reason the Ducks aren't expected to slip much, if at all, under new coach Mark Helfrich, the former offensive coordinator who was elevated after Chip Kelly left for the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles. A sophomore from Honolulu, Mariota threw for 2,677 yards with 32 touchdowns and only six interceptions, while also running for 752 yards and five touchdowns in 2012. With a plethora of offensive firepower around him, Mariota should be even better in his second season as a starter. -- Mark Schlabach
