ESPN Preseason All Pac-12 Team Includes Four Oregon Ducks

The College Football season is upon us and the ESPN Pac-12 Bloggers have listed their picks for the All-Pac 12 team entering the 2014 campaign. There are several Oregon Ducks on the list, three on the offensive side of the ball including Quarterback Marcus Mariota, Running Back Byron Marshall and Center Hroniss Grasu. Both Mariota and Grasu decided in the offseason to return to Oregon for one more year over taking their talents to the National Football League, as did the choice on the Defensive side of the ball.

On Defense, Cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu returned to the Oregon Ducks and is also on the Preseason All Pac-12 Team list. There are other key Pac-12 players that were also chosen including from the Pac-12 South and USC, four players in Wide Receiver Nelson Agholor on offense and  three on defense including Lineman Leonard Williams, Linebacker Hayes Pullard, and Safety Su’a Cravens. The UCLA Bruins also had an impressive amount of players on the list including Offensive Lineman Alex Redmond, and on Defense Linebacker Miles Jack and Erik Kendricks.

The Oregon Ducks start the regular season on Saturday, August 30th hosting South Dakota at 7:30pm Pacific Time on Pac-12 Networks.
