Four current players who could be all-timers
By Garry Paskwietz
If Leonard Williams builds on a stellar freshman season he'll almost certainly be an all-time USC fantasy draft pick in the future.
Marqise Lee was picked in this draft, so we will not include him among the four.
1) Leonard Williams: It was a pretty good start for his career when Williams was named the Pac-12 Freshman Defensive Player of the Year. He’s got the kind of size and athletic ability to be a unique interior lineman when all is said and done, the kind of impact player who could definitely find his way to this list sooner rather than later.
2) Nelson Agholor: Marqise Lee already made the list, Robert Woods was a glaring omission and now the Trojans have another receiver in Agholor who has the ability to earn his spot before too long. Agholor is showing the kind of game-breaking skills that allowed Woods and Lee to see so much success in recent years.
3) Su'a Cravens: Yes, it’s hard to put a guy on this list before he has played a down of football, but Cravens isn’t your run-of-the-mill can’t-miss prospect. He’s got tremendous size for the position and an aggressive, attacking style that could one day allow him to take a place in an impressive list of elite players at the USC safety spot.
4) Hayes Pullard: This might be a bit of a surprise pick but not if you consider that Pullard has already put in two productive years at the linebacker spot. He will be a clear leader of the defense this year as he moves to the middle and if he stays for his senior seasons, you could be talking about a four-year starter with an impressive body of work.
