Top 50 2018 Pac-12 football players 6-10: Khalil Tate one of the nation’s scariest QBs

We continue our countdown of the Pac-12’s Top 50 players.

NCAA Football: Arizona at Arizona State Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

6. Khalil Tate Jr. QB Arizona - There were times last year when Tate was as scary to opponents as any Pac-12 player I can ever remember. He stumbled a bit down the stretch, but remember he was only a sophomore and should be even better in 2018.

7. Greg Gaines Sr. DT Washington - Vita Vea may have gotten headlines the past two years, but Gaines has been in the trenches right next to him frustrating defenses. He’s a 320-pound fire hydrant who shuts down the middle of opponent’s offenses every game.

8. Marvell Tell Sr. S USC - Tell has developed into a senior leader for the Trojans in the secondary after turning down the NFL. He’s one of the conference’s most consistent players and is great against the run and pass with more than 80 tackles in 2017 and three picks.

9. N’Keal Harry Jr. WR Arizona State - Harry is that rare player who is an out of this world athlete who matches it with great production. He had 82 receptions for more than 1,100 yards last year with eight TDs and he is poised for even more in 2018.

10. Jake Browning Sr. QB Washington - Browning was the Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year as a sophomore, but took a step back last year without John Ross. He’s still a very prolific and solid quarterback, but he will have to take a couple steps forward again to show he’s a true superstar as a senior.
