We’re really close to getting to the top player in the Pac-12 going into 2022.

Now we start to get to All-America candidates and players who are already stars in the Conference.

This group is particularly full of great offensive linemen who are neck-and-neck with their rankings.

20. Dalton Kincaid, Tight End, Utah
Apparently, Alabama made a crazy run at him to transfer—and for good reason—he’s an incredible tight end.

Teamed with Brant Kuithe, Kincaid forms one of the best tight-end combos the Pac-12 has ever seen.

19. Edefuan Ulofoshio, Linebacker, Washington
Big, if here—as it sounds—he might be injured again. If not, he’s a complete linebacker and the defensive leader for the Huskies.

18. Jaxson Kirkland, Tackle, Washington
Kirckland earned a sixth year of eligibility and will be one of the longest starters in Conference history. He’s also a first-team All-Pac-12 player.

Utah’s Braeden Daniels | 247Sports

17. Braeden Daniels, Guard, Utah
Daniels is a power inside and a run-blocking ace. He’s probably the best interior lineman in the Conference in 2022.

16. Joshua Gray, Tackle, Oregon State
Gray has been a versatile, skilled big man for the Beavers since becoming a starter as a freshman. Probably the most talented lineman who has proven himself in the Conference.

15. T.J. Bass, Tackle, Oregon
Bass has played everywhere on the line and has been really good. He goes into 2022 as a proven First-Team All-Conference player and the best offensive lineman in the Pac-12.

14. Kyu Blu Kelly, Cornerback, Stanford
Kelly has been killing it since his freshman year. He has been in a slight slump, but he could turn that around and become a First-Round NFL Draft pick after his senior year.

Sun Devils’ Xazavian Valladay

13. Xazavian Valladay, Running Back, Arizona State
The Wyoming transfer has already run for 1,000 yards twice. The Sun Devils have a great recent track record of big-time running backs and he should be next.

USC’s Tuli Tuipulotu | 247Sports

12. Tuli Tuipulotu, Defensive End, USC
Tuipulotu is a big wrecker on the edge who has that rare combo of power and athleticism to be an elite edge. He can rush the passer and hold up against the run well.

11. Zion Tupuola-Fetui, Defensive End, Washington
We’re in wait-and-see mode with ZTF. He was scary good in 2020, and if he can get healthy and return to that form, the sky is the limit as a pass rusher.
