After three busy days, the 2020 NFL Draft has officially concluded. But that doesn’t mean the action ends there.
Over the next few days, teams around the NFL will be adding undrafted free agents to bolster their roster.
2020 ProDucks: Justin Herbert (Los Angeles Chargers); Troy Dye (Minnesota Vikings); Shane Lemieux (New York Giants); Jake Hanson (Green Bay Packers).
There are a few Oregon Ducks, however, who did not hear their name called in the draft that would siege the opportunity.
Here’s a look at which teams have signed Ducks to training camp rosters and will be updated accordingly:
In somewhat surprising news, the offensive lineman was not selected during the NFL Draft. But it didn't take long to hear his name after it ended on Saturday afternoon.
It has been reported that Throckmorton has signed with the New Orleans Saints.
Throckmorton was the only FBS offensive lineman in 2018 to start at four different positions (RT, C, RG, RT). Made 52 consecutive starts (41 at right tackle; five at left tackle; three at right guard, three at center) to finish his career at Oregon. Throckmorton allowed just one sack over his final 3,224 snaps (45 games), including 1,602 in pass protections.
He was named a second-team All-American as a junior and senior.
The 6-foot-7, 311-pound senior offensive lineman from Lafayette, California played in 13 games and made five starts his senior year. He started at three different positons (LT – 1, RG – 2, RT – 2).

Aiello also scored a touchdown for the Ducks last season:
The big man, 6-foot-4, 231-pound grad transfer wide receiver Juwan Johnson signs with the New Orleans Saints.
His one and only season in an Oregon uniform was a good one: Hauled in 30 receptions for 467 yards and four touchdowns. One of three Pac-12 players with three receiving TDs in a conference road game (at USC on November 2).
The Saints did not select a wide receiver in the NFL Draft and will join teammate Calvin Throckmorton on the training camp roster.
Senior defensive end Gus Cumberlander, who missed the final nine games of the 2019-2020 Oregon football season, has been given a chance at an NFL career with the New Orleans Saints.
The 6-foot-7, 256-pound defensive end's size and speed must have been too much to pass up. He will join Throckmorton and Juwan Johnson in New Orleans.
6-foot-5, 248-pound outside linebacker Bryson Young is headed for the ATL. Young's most productive season at Oregon was his last: Started all 13 games at the STUD position in Andy Avalos' defensive system. Totaled 56 tackles after a combined 17 the previous three seasons.
The Falcons drafted one linebacker in the fourth round, pick 199: Fresno State's Mykal Walker.
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound senior tight end is on his way healthy to a team that loves tight ends. Breeland finished fourth among all-time Oregon tight ends with 1,225 receiving yards. He was Herbert's go-to guy before missing the final eight games of the season due to a season-ending injury.
Breeland finished his career at Oregon with career totals of 74 receptions for 1,225 yards and 13 TDs.
