Ranking the Pac-10's 30 best players: No. 24 (xTwo!)
Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller
Folks... we have an accounting error. Just realized my master list -- reorganized, like, 50 times -- doubled up a number so I have 31 guys.
So we have two defensive tackles at No. 24.
Yes, I'm copping out. I refuse to drop either guy.
Just see this as sort of like the Big Ten  now. The 30 best players are actually 31.
Lawrence Guy, DT, Arizona State: This one is a nod to upside. Potential first-round NFL draft choice upside. As a true freshman, Guy took over as the starting defensive tackle five games into the season, but still led all Sun Devils defensive linemen with 44 tackles -- 10 for a loss -- with two sacks. Word is the Freshman All-American has added 20 pounds of muscle to his 6-foot-5 frame since arriving in Tempe, so Guy could become Man inside in 2009.
Stephen Paea, DT, Oregon State: Another nod to upside. Paea, a junior, has only played football four years, but he managed to lead all Pac-10 interior linemen with five sacks in 2008. The native of Tonga also had 41 tackles, with 11 coming for a loss, and a forced fumble. Built low to the ground at 6-foot-1, 293 pounds with tremendous natural strength, Paea also figures to be a force inside in 2009.

26. Tyson Alualu, DE, California
27. Devin Ross, CB, Arizona
28. Keaton Kristick, LB, Oregon State
