Heading into the 2013 season, we polled a group of Pac-12 bloggers to get their votes on who they think will end up winning some hypothetical major awards for the conference and a pre-season All-Pac-12 team.
Here are the results.
First place - Marcus Mariota QB Oregon
Mariota got the most votes easily which makes sense due to the fact that he can do so many things and leads the conference favorite.
Second place - Marqise Lee WR USC
Lee got a lot of votes, but might be limited by the position he plays and the uncertainty at quarterback at USC.
Third place - Ka'Deem Carey RB Arizona
Carey might produce the best numbers, but his team's overall success may hold him back.
Defensive Player of the Year
Anthony Barr LB UCLA
Barr edges out Sutton here for the award that Sutton likely narrowly edged him out for last season.
Freshman of the Year
Thomas Tyner RB Oregon
Pac-12 voters can't wait to see what the speedy Tyner can do in Oregon's offense.
Coach of the Year
Mark Helfrich Oregon
Pac-12 voters expect Helfrich to pick up right where Chip Kelly left off.
Offensive Coordinator of the Year
Noel Mazzone UCLA
The Bruins will need to replace a lot of fire power on offense, but with Brett Hundley, anything is possible.
Defensive Coordinator of the Year
Derek Mason Stanford
Mason has a pretty scary defensive roster that should make sure that he wins this awards.
QB Marcus Mariota So. Oregon
Hundley got a couple votes, but Mariota was nearly unanimous here.
RB Ka'Deem Carey Jr. Arizona (Unanimous)
No question here, as easy of a vote as you can make.
RB Bishop Sankey Jr. Washington
Putting Thomas at All-Purpose opens up the spot for the very deserving Sankey.
AP De'Anthony Thomas Jr. Oregon
Thomas may have been unanimous if he had one concrete position.
WR Marqise Lee Jr. USC (Unanimous)
Another no-brainer like Carey.
WR Brandin Cooks Jr. Oregon State
This spot probably opened up due to Austin Hill's injury, but Cooks is still deserving.
TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins Jr. Washington
Seferian-Jenkins was one vote away from being unanimous due to one vote for Chris Coyle.
T Cameron Fleming Sr. Stanford
Not as much of a slam dunk as David Yankey, but still the biggest vote getter for the position.
T Tyler Johnstone So. Oregon
Johnstone narrowly beat out fellow Duck Jake Fisher.
G David Yankey Sr. Stanford (Unanimous)
Far and away the best offensive lineman in the conference.
G Xavier Su'a-Filo Jr. UCLA
Su'a-Filo might not be as good as Yankey, but he was close to unanimous too.
C Hroniss Grasu Jr. Oregon (Unanimous)
One of the best centers in the country.
K Andrew Furney Sr. Washington State
Consistent with a big leg, Furney was the clear choice here.
DE Scott Crichton Jr. Oregon State
Nearly unanimous, Crichton is an incredible pass-rusher.
DE Morgan Breslin Sr. USC
Breslin got nearly as many votes as Crichton as is a solid second defensive end for an All-Pac-12 team.
DT Will Sutton Sr. Arizona State (Unanimous)
Returning Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, easy call here.
DT Leonard Williams So. USC
One of the most interesting spots on the team with no clear cut guy, Williams beat out Wade Keliikipi for the spot.
LB Anthony Barr Sr. UCLA (Unanimous)
One of the best linebackers to play in the Pac-12 in a long time.
LB Shayne Skov Sr. Stanford
Would usually be the best linebacker in the conference, but Barr is pretty impossible to beat.
LB Trent Murphy Sr. Stanford
Ditto, the note that accompanies Skov.
CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu Jr. Oregon (Unanimous)
A great all-around CB that is an All-American candidate.
CB Terrance Mitchell Jr. Oregon
An underrated talent, Mitchell might start to get accolades this season.
S Ed Reynolds Sr. Stanford
Reynolds had enough interceptions last season to justify him nearly being an unanimous choice.
S Dion Bailey Jr. USC
Move to safety actually probably got him onto the first team.
P Darragh O'Neill Jr. Colorado
Maybe he got so many votes because he punts more than any other guy in the conference.
Returner De'Anthony Thomas Jr. Oregon
Narrowly beat out Marqise Lee.
