Minneapolis, Minn. -- Former Oregon Duck linebacker Troy Dye was taken with the 132nd overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Dye will be joining his old teammate, wide receiver Dillon Mitchell, in Minneapolis.
After deciding to return to the team last year for his senior year, Dye again led a resurgent Oregon defense in tackles, the fourth straight year he did so. Battling through a broken thumb and partially torn meniscus, he, along with the rest of his Duck teammates, won a Pac-12 Championship and a Rose Bowl vs. Wisconsin.
Dye finished his final campaign in Eugene with 84 tackles, 9.5 for loss, 2 interceptions and 2 forced fumbles.
