OL Frank Ragnow Sr. Arkansas
DL Harold Landry Sr. Boston College
DL TyQuan Lewis Sr. Ohio State
DL Ed Oliver So. Houston
DL Christian Wilkins Jr. Clemson
LB Josey Jewell Sr. Iowa
LB Azeem Victor Sr. Washington
Victor is back and healthy and ready to lead the Husky defense as a senior. He is the best defender in the entire Pac-12 if healthy and a vocal team leader who shuts things down on the inside and patrols the outside as well.
LB Arden Key Jr. LSU
DB Tarvarus McFadden Jr. Florida State
DB Jaire Alexander Jr. Louisville
DB Minkah Fitzpatrick Jr. Alabama
DB Quin Blanding Sr. Virginia
K Daniel Carlson Sr. Auburn
P Mitch Wishnowsky Jr. Utah
The rare punter so good he can really affect a game. Without question the best punter in the nation.
R Quadree Henderson Jr. Pittsburgh
QB Sam Darnold So. USC
Darnold made a major statement down the stretch in 2016 with the Rose Bowl being an exclamation mark. He is a rare complete package as a quarterback in college football and looks ready for a Heisman run.
RB Derrius Guice Jr. LSU
RB Kamryn Pettway Sr. Auburn
WR Calvin Ridley Jr. Alabama
WR Courtland Sutton Jr. SMU
TE Jaylen Samuels Sr. NCState
OL Will Hernandez Sr. UTEP
OL Mason Cole Sr. Michigan
OL Orlando Brown Jr. Oklahoma
OL Braden Smith Sr. Auburn
OL Brian Allen Sr. Michigan State
DL Bradley Chubb Sr. NCState
DL Vita Vea Jr. Washington
Vea looked ready to breakout as a superstar at the end of 2016, especially in the Peach Bowl. He is 6’5 340 with the athleticism of a defensive end. He should be a Top 10 pick in 2018.
DL Marquis Haynes Sr. Mississippi
DL Da’Ron Payne Jr. Alabama
LB Micah Kiser Sr. Virginia
LB Travin Howard Sr. TCU
LB Tegray Scales Sr. Indiana

K Eddy Piniero So. Florida
P J.K. Scott Sr. Alabama
R Rashaad Penny Sr. San Diego State
QB Baker Mayfield Sr. Oklahoma
RB Nick Chubb Sr. Georgia
RB Phillip Lindsay Sr. Colorado
Lindsay had more than 1,700 combined rushing/receiving yards and scored more than 15 touchdowns as the star of Colorado’s offense in 2016. He should meet those marks in 2017 and lead an even-better Colorado offense.
WR Dante Pettis Sr. Washington
Pettis scored 18 touchdowns in 2016 and has the rare ability to be a possession receiver and a deep threat at the same time with his athleticism and leaping ability. He will get more targets in 2017 with John Ross off to the NFL.
WR Allen Lazard Sr. Iowa State
TE Adam Breneman Sr. UMass
OL Billy Price Sr. Ohio State
OL Will Clapp Jr. LSU
OL Coleman Shelton Sr. Washington
The senior leader of what should be the Pac-12’s, and one of the nation’s, best offensive lines. He has nasty, range and strength and rarely lets opponents penetrate up the middle as a center.
OL Trey Adams Jr. Washington
6’8 320, Adams is a towering monster who protects Jake Browning’s left size. He has the size and ability to take over games.
OL Cody O’Connell Sr. Washington State
The 6’8 370-pound O’Connell was an All-American last year as one of the nation’s best pass blockers, and nothing should change in 2017.
DL Duke Ejiofor Sr. Wake Forest
DL Dorance Armstrong Jr. Kansas
DL Maurice Hurst Sr. Michigan
DL Sam Hubbard Jr. Ohio State
LB Cameron Smith Jr. USC
Huge and versatile, Smith is a big hitter who shuts down the middle who can also pick off passes. The backbone of what should be a very good USC defense.
LB Ogbonnia Okoronkwo Sr. Oklahoma
LB Jerome Baker Jr. Ohio State
DB Dominick Sanders Sr. Georgia
DB Armani Watts Sr. Texas A&M
DB Jordan Whitehead Jr. Pittsburgh
DB Marcus Allen Sr. Penn State
K Gary Wunderlich Sr. Mississippi
P Johnny Townsend Sr. Florida
R Dante Pettis Sr. Washington
Returned two punts for touchdowns in 2016, including a game-winner against Utah.
QB Jake Browning Jr. Washington
Browning put up Heisman-level numbers in 2016 and led the Huskies to 12 wins. He could do even more in 2017.
RB Myles Gaskin Jr. Washington
Gaskin had his second-straight 1,000-yard-plus season in 2016. He is a big play back that is consistent and can control a game with powerful running.
RB Ronald Jones Jr. USC
Jones has size and speed and is a scary runner that should break 1,000 yards again. He could turn into a Heisman candidate.
