PFN Preseason All-Pac-12 Team 2022: Utah runs the conference until proven otherwise

    The PFN All-Pac-12 Team awards the top players on both sides of the ball from the conference ahead of the 2022 college football season.

    The Pac-12 runs through Utah, as indicated by the volume of Utes on our Preseason All-Pac-12 Team. Utah is headlined by the conference’s top returning quarterback in Cam Rising. But unlike in recent college football seasons, their strength is on offense. Presented in conjunction with our release of our College Football All-Americans, we at PFN debut our 2022 preseason All-SEC Team, as voted on by our team of national analysts and NFL draft evaluators.

    PFN’s 2022 All-Pac-12 Team

    It is important to note that these teams may look a bit different than the all-conference teams listed by each individual conference. Our teams mirror our All-Americans, taking into consideration not only what a player has accomplished to date but looking forward to what we expect to see based on the growth of the athlete’s career.

    Offense | First team

    QB: Cameron Rising, Utah
    RB: Tavion Thomas, Utah
    RB: Zach Charbonnet, UCLA
    WR: Jacob Cowing, Arizona
    WR: Jordan Addison, USC
    WR: Elijah Higgins, Stanford
    TE: Dalton Kincaid, Utah
    FLEX: Brant Kuithe, Utah
    OT: Walter Rouse, Stanford

    C: Alex Forsyth, Oregon
    G: Brandon Kipper, Oregon State
    OT: Braeden Daniels, Utah

    Defense | First team

    EDGE: Ron Stone Jr., Washington State
    DT: Tuli Tuipulotu, USC
    DT: Tuli Letuligasenoa, Washington
    EDGE: Zion Tupuola-Fetui, Washington
    LB: Noah Sewell, Oregon
    LB: Merlin Robertson, Arizona State
    LB: Daiyan Henley, Washington State
    CB: Clark Phillips III, Utah
    CB: Kyu Blu Kelly, Stanford
    CB: Armani Marsh, Washington State

    Specialists | First team

    PK: Camden Lewis, Oregon
    P: Kyle Ostendorp, Arizona
    KR: Kazmeir Allen, UCLA
    PR: D.J. Taylor, Arizona State
    LS: Slater Zellers, Cal

    Utah’s Rising takes the top spot, but Tavion Thomas and the dual-threat tight end combination of Dalton Kincaid and Brant Kuithe should give defenses fits. Oregon State is represented by one of the top offensive linemen in the country as Brandon Kipper kicks inside after some stalwart seasons at tackle. He wasn’t the only Beaver offensive lineman to earn a nod as Marco Brewer landed on the second team.

    Offense | Second team

    QB: Caleb Williams, USC
    RB: Xazavian Valladay, Arizona State
    RB: Damien Moore, Cal
    WR: Brycen Tremayne, Stanford
    WR: Devaughn Vele, Utah
    WR: Renard Bell, Washington State
    TE: Benjamin Yurosek, Stanford
    FLEX: Kazmeir Allen, UCLA | Mario Williams, USC
    OT: Courtland Ford, USC
    G: Marco Brewer, Oregon State
    C: Matthew Cindric, Cal
    G: Sataoa Laumea, Utah
    OT: Jaxson Kirkland, Washington

    Defense | Second team

    EDGE: Bo Calvert, UCLA
    DT: Brandon Dorlus, Oregon
    DT: Kyon Bars, Arizona
    EDGE: Brennan Jackson, Washington State
    LB: Omar Speights, Oregon State
    LB: Levani Dumani, Stanford
    LB: Kain Medrano, UCLA
    CB: Devin Kirkwood, UCLA
    CB: Christian Roland-Wallace, Arizona
    CB: Bennett Williams, Oregon
    S: Cole Bishop, Utah
    S: Isaiah Lewis, Colorado
    FLEX: Mohamoud Diabate, Utah

    Specialists | Second team

    PK: Dean Janikowski, Washington State
    P: Ryan Sanborn, Stanford
    KR: D.J. Taylor, Arizona State
    PR: Casey Filkins, Stanford
    LS: Jaden Green, Washington

    USC brings in a ton of talent with the new coaching staff under Lincoln Riley. Most notably, of course, is quarterback Caleb Williams who should once again take major headlines. The Trojans are set to join the Big Ten, but for one last season, they can give it a go to win the Pac-12 before ultimately jettisoning the conference with crosstown rival UCLA.
