The Pac 12 finally joins the rest of the country, taking the field for the first time this weekend

With the MAC and the Pac-12 entering their shortened season, Division I college football is back in business – although the coronavirus pandemic remains a big factor Games continue to be called off – and some players are still sidelined after being exposed to the disease Others continue to withdraw from the season

From a perspective perspective, the Pac-12 can see some of the biggest effects In terms of talent, it was already going to be a year on the decline But conference headliners like Penei Sewell, Paulson Adebo , Joe Tryon and Jay Tufele have already decided to skip the season Meanwhile, the first games for Washington, California, Utah and Arizona – originally scheduled for this weekend – have been called off

But while the Pac-12 draft candidate pool will be rather slim this weekend, that doesn’t mean there isn’t any talent to watch out for.So in an effort to improve the Chiefs’ Kansas City in 2021 and beyond, let’s take a look at some of the Pac-12 players we’ll see for the first time on Saturday.

One of three highly recruited brothers, St Brown’s older brother, Equanimeous St Brown was once a last-round draft pick by the Green Bay Packers. A lot has been done with this talented trio, but Amon- Ra has been the most wanted of the three – and so far has had the most productive college career

Although he spends most of his time at USC in the slot machine, St Brown has the physical traits and size to become a wide outside receiver to the next level. Rated at 6ft 1 and 195 pounds, it corresponds to the general prototype that Andy Reid likes to see in possession of large receivers

Practically enough, this is where USC has used him the best.He has been a fantastic sub catcher, working in midfield using a good mix of speed, body control and technique. running to consistently produce yards after the catch St Brown also has impressive ball tracking skills – and the ability to pitch and attack football while traveling vertical routes

With Michael Pittman Jr leaving for the NFL this year, St Brown may have more opportunities to play away.Even if he doesn’t, USC is one of the college programs that doesn’t has no qualms about playing their best chess in the slot machine for a match advantage He needs to improve his course tree and learn to identify cover on the fly – but being such a young player it should come Based on his ability to part ways, a great season could really push St Brown into the top 50 – even in a class of large and powerful receivers

Over the past two seasons, Lenoir has been part of an excellent Oregon high school but now that three more starters have retired he will be headlining in 2020 It’s a pretty smooth engine that often draw matches against faster and faster wide receivers To the next level, and projects better as a cover cornerback

The Oregon Deommodore Lenoir weighs 5’11  » and 195 pounds, but plays even bigger than that Quick hands – as shown on this one-handed INT – and isn’t afraid to poke his nose in a tackle He has a chance to make waves in his final year as the Pac-12 opens this weekendTwittercom / R4StpFjwNJ

Rated at 5’11 and 195 pounds, there are occasions when Lenior’s lack of length shows up – but when called up he plays big He can come down to make a tackle – or when he’s under press at the line of scrimmage, attacking a much wider receiver, trusting their fluidity to recover if their hands go missing His fluidity – being able to flip his hips and change direction – is where he makes his biggest impact as a cover player, as it allows him to strike inside the lunge every now and then. Since he is able to mirror and match broads, Lenoir is currently a bit better in covering men than in the Zone.

When changing target in the coverage area, Lenoir’s eyes can sometimes get caught – which has cost Oregon multiple times. Other points of concern include his lack of length – and the fact that some taller wide receivers can beat him at the catch point To be considered a higher level cover corner, Lenoir needs to show more consistency in coverage – and make more plays on the ball

With the withdrawal of Penei Sewell, Lucas becomes the Pac-12’s best offensive tackle prospect – and like previous Washington State tackles, his specialty is pass protection

Anthony Gordon can play at his own pace, but he produced some of the most absurd throws of last season. His dropbacks and pocket moves are a little ~ unusual ~ but his actual throwing mechanics are best in class Likes to find the half-spaces between zone defenders: photoTwittercom / mwoBCuJ3cl

Given the offense, Lucas (# 72, playing the right tackle in these clips) is a competent passing protector. Over the years, Washington State has « styled » his protective techniques for fitters offensive lines – and with Lucas, it shows He uses a multitude of different passing plays, keeping his hands active while working on the arc He has lateral agility and quickness to mirror and match most rushes trying to work around it, while also owning the length to easily fit them around the pocket

He needs to work on improving the timing of his feet relative to his hands; he tends to stop his feet when he strikes This can throw him off balance – and more experienced passers may have taken advantage of this As a stroke blocker, he’s rarely asked to do much more than block the drive – with mixed results

Opposite Lucas there will be Rashed, who is the Pac-12’s new sack boss. A bit of a hybrid player who plays as a standing edge defender who also has covering responsibilities, it’s hard to ignore Rashed production

Rashed’s engine just never stops, so he gets plenty of pursuit tackles – last season he led the country in loss tackles – and sacks too. But that’s not all ‘he can offer

Rashed has a lethal first step and fantastic snap timing; he often appears to be offside Although this is often seen as a negative he can do it consistently – so it’s hard to hit him for that Rashed has a toolbox for passing as well in depth, as well as the athleticism required to pull off any of the moves He does a quality job of working his speed into the backlashes throughout his games – especially in terms of converting speed to power

As a running defender, Rashed isn’t incredibly tough at the point of attack, but he can land a good initial punch to create a split He has also shown some ability to move on to cover Teams up front will always have concerns about his size and strength – but at 6-3, 247 pounds, he could become an off-the-ball linebacker in the strong side to the next level

The battle between Lucas and Rashed could be the best game of the season for the Pac-12 between an offensive lineman and a passer although neither player is a perfect prospect – or even has a clear path to the NFL – both have important high-end traits If either can seize the moment and present an improvement, it could help them become a first-round pick in 2021
