Entering their third spring practice on Saturday morning, the Ducks took the field in pads for the first time. Though the coaching staff has already gotten their first looks at this year’s squad, Saturday’s padded practice represented the first opportunity for them to see how far they’ve come in the areas of effort and toughness from a year ago.
