PAC-10 Players to Watch in 2009

Jahvid Best, RB, California
Best will be a draft-eligible junior who averaged over 8 yards per carry in 2008. Can also contribute as a return-man and is an excellent gunner.

Ron Gronkowski, TE, Arizona

Big Guy with soft hands that can move pretty well. Should become the top threat with Mike Thomas out of the picture. He will only be limited by the caliber of his quarterback.

Joe McKnight, RB, USC

You’ve heard of this guy for years, thanks in no small part by the USC-Lovers at ESPN. With a new QB this year, look for McKnight to be even more involved in the offense – his athleticism is unparalleled.

Taylor Mays, S, USC
It is hard not to include at least two Trojans on this list, and Mays certainly deserves to be there. Mays would have probably been the first safety drafted in 2009 and with his unique size and skill set, a top five pick doesn’t seem out of the question.
