Day 1 analysis


Justin Herbert — No. 6, Los Angeles Chargers

Herbert was the first Pac-12 star to go off the board Thursday, going to the Chargers with the sixth overall pick. The 6-foot-6 prospect became the second Duck quaterback selected by the Chargers (Dan Fouts in 1973). He's also the sixth QB and the 18th player in Oregon history taken in the first round of the NFL Draft. Herbert completed 64% of his career passes at Oregon and ranks second in school history in both career passing TDs and passing yardage.


Austin Jackson — No. 18, Miami Dolphins

Jackson went 18th overall to the Dolphins, giving Miami some valuable protection for their No. 5 pick: quarterback Tua Tagovailoa. His selection makes him the first USC offensive lineman taken in the first round since Matt Kalil (No. 4 overall in 2012). Jackson was a first team All-Pac-12 selection this season and brings plenty of potential to The Sunshine State.

Arizona State

Brandon Aiyuk — No. 25, San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers traded up for the 25th pick to select Aiyuk in the first round. ASU has now had wide receivers selected in the first round in back-to-back years (N'Keal Harry, 32nd, New England). Aiyuk had a breakout 2019 season with a remarkable 711 yards after catch to collect first team All-Pac-12 honors.

Day 2 analysis


Utah led the Pac-12’s day two haul with four selections, three of which were DBs. Jaylon Johnson was the Pac-12’s first defensive pick overall, going 50th overall in the second round to the Chicago Bears. The selection gives Utah defensive backs drafted in back-to-back years (Marquise Blair). After Johnson’s pick, the Utes had a pair of back-to-back selections: Julian Blackmon (85th to the Colts) and Zack Moss (86th to the Bills). Blackmon’s pick was one of three picks for the Utes’ DB corps on the evening. And Moss is the Bills’ first Utah selection since the 2003 Draft. The LA Rams took Terrell Burgess 104th overall to round out Utah’s impressive day on the boards.


Michael Pittman Jr. (34th overall to the Colts) was the first Pac-12 star taken in the second round. The WR joins USC defensive back Marvell Tell, who was selected by Indy in last year’s NFL Draft during the fifth round.


CU had two selections Friday when the Jags took Laviska Shenault Jr. 42nd overall and the Eagles selected Davion Taylor with the 103rd pick in the third round. Shenault Jr. becomes the Buffs’ highest-drafted prospect since Nate Solder went No. 17 overall in the 2011 Draft. In Jacksonville, Shenault Jr. will give former WSU quarterback Gardner Minshew II a crafty receiver who can torch defenses in space. Learn more about Shenault Jr.’s journey to stardom with Pac-12 Networks’ Our Stories feature. LB Davion Taylor also heard his name called: 103rd overall to the Eagles.


Cal’s Ashtyn Davis, a former walk-on turned star safety in a story told by Ashley Adamson, went to the Jets with the 68th overall pick. Davis becomes the highest-drafted Golden Bear since Jared Goff went first overall in 2016.


Devin Asiasi will get a rare chance to reunite with a former college coach in Jedd Fisch (Patriots QB coach) when he lands in Foxborough. Asiasi, selected 91st overall, played under Fisch at both UCLA and Michigan. Asiasi finished second among Pac-12 TEs last season with 641 receiving yards
