1
Blake Freeland, OT Jr.

Go ahead and put just about anyone on this list in the No. 1 spot, and yeah, Kingsley Suamataia is probably the best blocker on the team and he hasn’t even done anything yet.

However, the 6-8, 305-pound Freeland is a technician and future pro that things are going to work around from his spot at left tackle. This is his third year as the starter, and this is when he starts to get more national attention.

2
Jaren Hall, QB Jr.

6-1, 205. 189-296 (64%) 2,583 yards, 20 TD, 5 INT, 37 rushing yards, three TDs last year

Keenan Pili, LB Jr.

6-3, 233. 129 career tackles – he was injured last year and only played three games – 2.5 sacks, 9.5 tackles for loss, 3 broken up passes in 22 games
