One of the biggest games of the season in the Pac-12 Conference will take place Saturday when the Oregon Ducks travel to Seattle to take on the Washington Huskies in a 4 p.m. afternoon showcase. The No. 2 Oregon Ducks go into the game undefeated and trying to keep their national championship hopes going strong, while the Huskies will be trying to get a big win on the toughest part of their schedule, one week after losing a hard-fought game to Stanford by only three points.

As a result of both teams having a bevy of potential 2014 NFL draft prospects, this week’s game prospect preview is a double feature. Joe Marino is focusing solely on Oregon’s prospects this week, while he has been joined by fellow staff writer and Washington state resident Joseph Curtis, who is taking a closer look at the Huskies’ top prospects this week.

Oregon’s top five prospects are listed on page 1, while six from Washington can be found on page 2.

Three weeks into the season, the NFL standings are just beginning to take shape. It’s far too early to count anyone out or crown a champion just yet, there’s plenty of season ahead. However, it’s never too early to begin looking ahead.

While the NFL Draft may be nearly eight months away, draft boards are already taking shape as top prospects and draft needs become clearer.
