WATCH: Jevon Holland Talks NFL Draft Preparation

Holland was the top safety on the West Coast during his time in Eugene and brings versatility to the secondary.
Publish date:

The defensive back position has seen steady improvement at Oregon in recent years, with multiple Ducks slated to be taken in the upcoming NFL Draft. Jevon Holland is the main talk of the town, as his high level of play in just two seasons has him viewed by some teams as a first round pick. 

Holland excels in coverage--spending some of his Oregon career as the team's top cover corner while also returning punts. He says he's a "ball hawk by nature," which was on display when he led the Ducks in interceptions in consecutive seasons--the first Oregon defender to do so since Jairus Byrd.

He is also strong against the run and is a solid tackler in space due to his elite athleticism. 

Where do you think he'll end up at the NFL?
