The Pacific Northwest and the state of California are ground zero for the Pac-12’s top talent in 2017. Oregon and Washington take the top two spots on Athlon’s All-Pac-12 team for 2017, as the Ducks and Huskies combine for 27 overall selections. Oregon’s 14 picks are the most of any team in the conference. Washington State isn’t far behind its North counterparts, as coach Mike Leach’s team checks in with 11 selections. Stanford features 12 selections on the All-Pac-12 team, headlined by first-team cornerback Quenton Meeks. USC features 11 picks this season, including first-team quarterback Sam Darnold and linebacker Iman Marshall.

Athlon Sports has released its top 25 for 2017. Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the league with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2017.

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2017. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2017 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
