Former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota
will be the first to tell you his return to Eugene to workout for NFL team scouts, coaches and GM's in preparation for the 2015 draft was just 'ok'.
"I thought it went ok" said Mariota shortly after his pro day workout in the Moshofsky Center on Thursday.
The hurt is immediate, but when the crushing disappointment fades there's a lot to be proud of if you're Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota

To say the last month in the life of Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota

doesn't enjoy the spotlight.
