Previous rankings: Quarterback, running back.

1. Washington Huskies

Without a doubt, the Huskies have the most talented tight end in not only the conference, but the country. In addition to Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington has Kasen Williams leading the receiving corps. Williams has been supremely underrated in the preseason, with him missing practically every list despite actually catching more passes for more yards than ASJ last season. He’ll be joined by three four-star freshman. It seems as though John Ross will make the biggest impact of the three, as he is listed as the starting slot receiver and has impressed during fall practice.

2. USC Trojans

While the Huskies have the best tight end, the Trojans undoubtedly have the best receiver. Marqise Lee led the conference in receiving yards last year and was second only to Baylor’s Terrence Williams in the nation. Nelson Agholor makes for a more-than-viable second option. No matter who wins the quarterback competition, he’ll have an impressive repertoire of targets to throw to.

3. Oregon Ducks

The top two teams separated themselves with exceptional top-level talent in addition to depth. The Ducks, of course, have both of those, too. Senior Josh Huff figures to be one of the leading receivers in the Pac-12 this season after leading the Ducks last season as a junior. Junior tight end Colt Lyerla only caught 25 passes last season, but has emerged as one of the top tight ends in the conference.
