2012 Preseason Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year

QB Matt Barkley, Sr. USC

Barkley returns for his senior year as one of the most polished passers in America, an early favorite to win the Heisman Trophy, and be picked No. 1 overall in next April’s draft. He completely turned the corner in his evolution as a hurler a year ago by going 308-of-446 for 3,528 yards, 39 touchdowns and just seven picks. He’s the complete package in a franchise quarterback, from his poise and leadership in the huddle to his tight spirals and perfectly-timed touch passes.

2012 Preseason Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year
 
DT Star Lotulelei, Sr. Utah

The 6-4, 325-pounder is a boulder in the middle of the Utah D-line, and one of the nation’s premier run-stuffing tackles. Named the Pac-12’s most dominant defensive lineman of 2011, he’s on the fast track to the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft as soon as he’s done playing for the Utes. The powerful anchor of the defense had 44 tackles, nine stops for loss and 1.5 sacks as a junior, but is most effective when occupying blockers so that his teammates have a clearer path to making plays.
