Pac-12 Media Days is next week, so we at DieHards thought we’d roll out our preseason All-Pac-12 teams. Many stalwarts from last season’s all-conference lists return, including a slew on defense.
The votes were cast by DieHards editor Eric Yates and Pac-12 writers Max Meyer and Justin Spears. With many unanimous selections, it’s clear that there is a ton of star power in the Pac-12 this season on both sides of the ball.
Washington leads the way with six selections, followed by USC with four and Washington State with three.
The only teams not represented on any of the lists are Arizona and Oregon State.
Here are our preseason picks for the DieHards All-Pac-12 team:

1st-Team All-Pac-12 Specialists

With so many unanimous selections, it shows that one thing is expected in the Pac-12: The stars will be the stars.
Obviously, things can change over the course of the season, but this group’s repeated success and productivity should continue through another fabulous Pac-12 football season.
