Top QB prospect Herbert returning to Oregon

Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert will not enter the draft, which could impact teams with top 5 picks

Justin Herbert returning to OR for his senior season wasn't part of the Giants' plan.

While it seems very unlikely that the Raiders would have selected a quarterback in 2019, the announcement by Herbert makes that even less likely.

"The University of OR has been a special place to me for as long as I can remember", Herbert said in a statement on the school's official Twitter account. My commitment to my teammates, our coaches, Duck fans, and the University of OR has never been stronger. In a release from OR, quarterback Justin Herbert announced he would be coming back to the Ducks for his senior season in 2019. However, with Herbert returning for his senior season, the Giants may have to look elsewhere or continue waiting for their future franchise quarterback.

Herbert was projected to be one of the first quarterbacks off the board in next spring's NFL Draft had he declared.

Most will argue that the Jags have free agency and could go with a quarterback later in the draft, however, history says they're more likely to find an answer in round-one than anywhere else. He has thrown for 2,985 yards with 28 touchdowns to just eight interceptions as a junior this year.

The 8-4 Ducks will face Michigan State in the Redbox Bowl on Monday at 9 p.m.
