21. Ryan Nall Jr. RB Oregon State
The 6’2 235 back carried the Beaver offense on his back at times. He ran for nearly 1,000 yards and scored 13 touchdowns with 214 yards and two scores receiving while basically missing three games in 2016.
22. Shay Fields Sr. WR Colorado
Might be the most-dangerous receiver in the conference. He finished 2016 with nearly 900 yards and nine touchdowns and averaged more than 15 yards per-catch.
23. Kalen Ballage Sr. RB Arizona State
Ballage had more than 1,000 yards combined rushing and receiving in 2016 and scored 15 touchdowns. The 6’3 230 back with great speed is one of the most-unique athletes in the conference.
24. Koron Crump Sr. LB Arizona State
Just another Sun Devil linebacker who makes plays in the backfield all the time. Crump finished 2016 with 10.5 tackles for-loss and nine sacks with an interception.
25. Keishawn Bierria Sr. LB Washington
Flanks Azeem Victor and is almost just as good as a linebacker. He had 68 tackles with five for-loss and two sacks in 2016 along with five fumble recoveries.
26. JoJo Wicker Jr. DE Arizona State
The 2016 All-Pac-12 selection finished 2016 with 11.5 tackles for-loss and 2.5 sacks while also being great against the run on the edge.
27. Hercules Mata’afa Jr. DE Washington State
A scary pass rusher on the edge, Mata’afa had nearly 50 tackles in 2016 with 13.5 for-loss and five sacks. He could be the best pure defensive end in the conference in 2017.
28. Taylor Rapp So. S Washington
The Pac-12 Freshman Defensive Player of the Year and Pac-12 Championship Game MVP came on huge late in 2016. He might be the conference’s best defensive back by the end of 2017.
29. Lowell Lotulelei Sr. DT Utah
Lotulelei was banged up in 2016 and didn’t have his best year, but is a major talent and has the potential to be the conference’s best defensive player if he is fully healthy.
30. Kylie Fitts Sr. DE Utah
Fitts had seven sacks and seven tackles for-loss in 2015, but missed basically all of 2016 with an injury. He is a first-team All-Pac-12-level player if he comes back full-strength.
