Four Oregon players faced NFL decisions and all four are returning to school.

Cornerbacks Thomas Graham Jr. and Deommodore Lenoir and defensive tackles Jordon Scott and Austin Faoliu all announced on Monday that they’ll be returning for their senior seasons.

Graham finished the season with 64 tackles with five for loss, 10 pass breakups, two interceptions and forced fumble this season. His corner counterpart, Lenoir, finished with 47 tackles with 2.5 for loss, seven pass breakups, an interception, forced fumble and had a fumble recovery.

On the interior defensive line, Scott had 32 tackles with three for loss on the season while Faoliu, had 39 tackles with a career-high five for loss including two sacks this season.

The returning quartet gives the Ducks a strong core on the defensive side of the ball heading into next season's early matchup with Ohio State when the Buckeyes travel to Eugene to take on Oregon.
