The Pac-12 football season has been unlike any other season, ever, in the history of the conference. We’ve seen game after game get canceled, new opponents added and scheduled games just 36 hours in advance. Yet, we’ve made it past Week 4 of the season and with two regular season weeks left to play, we thought it was a good idea to take a look at the gradebooks to see who has been playing the best football so far.

Thanks to the folks at PFF, we now have the highest-graded players at each position for the past few weeks of action.

Caveat here is, the PFF grades are subjective and are certainly just a conversation starter, but are definitely the most widely-used analytics source for college football. And as such, here are the highest-graded players, and the second-best, according to the analytics company, through Week 4 of the Pac-12 season.
