QB Justin Herbert Sr. Oregon - Herbert has Heisman-level potential, but has been just a solid B+ QB at Oregon. He narrowly beats out Costello for first team in a down year for elite Pac-12 QBs.
RB Eno Benjamin Jr. Arizona State - No question the best running back in the conference. Watch for him to top 1,500 yards and more than 10 touchdowns.
RB Joshua Kelley Sr. UCLA - The former walk on exploded late in 2018 and should assault the conference again as Chip Kelly’s offense progresses in his second year.
WR Laviska Shenault Jr. Colorado - He has a shot at being a Heisman candidate again and the nation’s top receiver.
WR Michael Pittman Sr. USC - A big drop off after Shenault, but he’s ready for a huge second break out season with USC’s new wide open offense.
TE Colby Parkinson Jr. Stanford - The 6’7 target has the chance to be the best Stanford tight end we’ve seen yet.
OL Walker Little Jr. Stanford - Another Stanford player who could end up being the best player at his position in recent Stanford history at a spot that has been great for the Cardinal the past 10 years.
OL Trey Adams Sr. Washington - If healthy, the sky is the limit for Adams and it sounds like he should be at full strength this year.
OL Nick Harris Sr. Washington - The conference’s best interior lineman is a tough run blocker who is deadly on the pull.
OL Calvin Throckmorton Sr. Oregon - One of the most-versatile linemen in the nation, Throckmorton could be All-Pac-12 at center, guard, or tackle. A four-year starter.
OL Abraham Lucas So. Washington State - The next in line to be a great Cougar pass blocker who ends up being a top end pick in the Draft.
DL Bradlee Anae Sr. Utah - The best edge player in the conference. He’s great against the run and rushing the passer.
DL Leki Fotu Sr. Utah - The best run stuffer in the conference. He’s huge and powerful and shuts down the middle.
DL Christian Rector Sr. USC - A bright spot on the USC defense who can play all over the line and dominate.
DL Mustafa Johnson Jr. Colorado - An underrated stud who made a ton of plays in the backfield last year who is great in the interior and on the edge.
LB Evan Weaver Sr. Cal - He was a major candidate for Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year last year and has the size and power to make plays in the backfield and can drop back into coverage as well.
LB Troy Dye Sr. Oregon - Dye is back for another year and has been a talented playmaker for the past three years, ready for a great senior season.
LB Colin Schooler Jr. Arizona - He has quickly become one of the Pac-12’s best defensive players - a tackling machine who can also get into the backfield.
DB Jaylon Johnson Jr. Utah - A lockdown corner and future first round pick.
DB Julian Blackmon Sr. Utah - He moves back to safety and should remain an elite defensive back.
DB Myles Bryant Sr. Washington - An All-American-level nickel corner who has been overshadowed by his teammates who are now in the NFL.
DB Paulson Adebo Jr. Stanford - Adebo exploded as a freshman and is one of the most-hyped Pac-12 players going into 2019 as a long, playmaking cornerback.
K Jet Toner Sr. Stanford - The clutch veteran kicker takes over as the Pac-12’s best.
P Oscar Draguicevich Jr. Washington State - He might have the best punting stats of returning punters.
R Travel Harris So. Washington State - Was a lights out return man as a freshman.
QB KJ Costello Sr. Stanford - Costello could easily be first team as he was probably better than Herbert in 2018.
RB Zack Moss Sr. Utah - He’s ready for a 1,500 plus season as a senior and should be the driving force of Utah’s offense.
RB JJ Taylor Jr. Arizona - One of the most-underrated players in the nation. He’s one of the best players you could ever find at getting the most out of every carry.
WR Aaron Fuller Sr. Washington - He blew up as a junior and should be Jacob Eason’s go-to target at receiver in 2019.
WR Tay Martin Jr. Washington State - The Cougars are loaded with receivers who had big numbers in 2018. Martin is the best of the bunch.
TE Hunter Bryant Jr. Washington - Watch out for Bryant to stay healthy and become one of the nation’s best tight ends in 2019.
OL Jake Hanson Sr. Oregon - Another multi-year starter for the Ducks on the offensive line, and maybe the most physically-gifted.
OL Shane Lemeiux Sr. Oregon - One more super-experienced Duck offensive linemen. One of the best guards in the nation.
OL Cohl Cabral Sr. Arizona State - A tough center who keys the running game for Eno Benjamin quite well.
OL Frederick Mauigoa Sr. Washington State - Another talented center. The best the Cougars have had in quite some time.
OL Penei Sewell So. Oregon - One of those players that could be first-team by the end of the season, just needs to prove it and stay healthy all season.
DL John Penisini Sr. Utah - Just another big defensive tackle who dominates up front for the Utes. An under the radar stud.
DL Luc Bequette Sr. Cal - He came into his own as a junior as was a big part of why Cal’s defense was so good last season.
DL Levi Onwuzurike Jr. Washington - The athletic defensive tackle put it together as a sophomore and should be one of the Pac-12’s best penetrating defensive tackles.
DL Jay Tufele So. USC - This guy started to turn into a star in 2018 and has unlimited potential.
LB Nate Landman Jr. Colorado - He emerged as an All-Pac-12 player as a sophomore and is an explosive playmaker on defense.
LB Jahad Woods Jr. Washington State - He excelled next to Peyton Pelleur as a sophomore and should take over as the leader of Washington State’s front seven.
LB Merlin Robertson So. Arizona State - Like Sewell, he could easily turn into a first-team player by the end of the season. He’s a star in the making.
DB Camryn Bynum Jr. Cal - One of the best cornerbacks you’ve never heard of. He’s a prototypical, big, physical corner with NFL potential.
DB Ashtyn Davis Sr. Cal - A veteran safety who can come up and defend the run and pick off passes as well.
DB Jaylinn Hawkins Sr. Cal - A speedy interception machine at safety who has incredible range.
DB Traveon Beck Sr. Cal - Is Cal’s secondary going to make up the entire second-team? Yes, yes they are.
K JJ Molson Sr. UCLA - A very solid kicker who’s been starting for a long time.
P Daniel Rodriguez Sr. Oregon State - Great stats and gets a lot of opportunities.
R Tyler Vaughns Jr. USC - Not just a really good receiver.
