3. TOP WASHINGTON STATE PLAYERS
Best Washington State Offensive Player
OT Abraham Lucas, Soph.
Andre Dillard went from being a terrific All-Pac-12 left tackle to a Philadelphia Eagle. He’s a strong pro prospect going into the big league, and Lucas has an even better NFL frame. The 6-7, 320-pound right tackle who could move to the spot on the left side, but Dillard’s backup Liam Ryan appears to be locked into the gig. Lucas will be the team’s top pass protector and a lock for all-star honors.

Best Washington State Defensive Player
LB Jahad Woods, Jr.
The 6-0, 225-pound junior might not be all that big, but he’s one of the Pac-12’s most reliable defenders. Last year he finished second on the team with 82 stops with three sacks and 4.5 tackles for loss. He only came with double-digit tackles once – with 11 against Arizona – but he’s a massive-hitting tone-setter who’ll be the top hitter on a defense full of good parts.
