2011 CFN Preseason Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year

QB Andrew Luck, Jr. Stanford

The 6-4, 235-pounder was brilliant in 2010, going 263-of-372 for 3,338 yards, 32 touchdowns, and eight picks. A sneaky-good runner, he also rushed for 453 yards and three scores. From the arm and the athleticism to the smarts and leadership, he has everything a program, and an NFL team, looks for in a franchise quarterback.

2011 CFN Preseason Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year

LB Vontaze Burfict, Jr. Arizona State

The All-Pac-10 selection paced the Sun Devils last year with 90 tackles, 8.5 of them for loss. It may be odd to call a 6-3, 252-pound middle linebacker lightning quick, but it applies. He has the range to make plays all over the field and the punishing hits to intimidate the opposition. Yes, his intensity has been the cause of a number of penalties and jeers from opposing crowds, but the staff likes his aggression as long as it’s controlled. Now he's a true leader of the program.
