It's time for our preseason All-Pac-12 team.

Most of this won't be surprising, though making distinctions at receiver and running back was particularly difficult. If you were to magically switch out our two receivers and replace them with USC's Marqise Lee and Cal's Keenan Allen you wouldn't get much objection.

You might notice that USC and Oregon dominated the team: Seven Trojans and seven Ducks made the cut. That's sort of what happens when your team is ranked in the preseason top five.

Nine teams are represented. Only Arizona, Arizona State and UCLA didn't provide players.

And making Oregon's De'Anthony Thomas just a return guy felt too underwhelming for us.
