That tied for third-most selections in the conference

California v Stanford

The Stanford Cardinal football team may have finished with the worst record in the conference last season but that doesn’t mean they’re not loaded with talent. In fact, Athlon Sports listed 12 Cardinal football players among their four preseason All-Pac-12 teams, tying for third most among all teams.

USC and Oregon led the way with 13 selections each and though Stanford tied with rival Cal for third place with 12 players, Cal didn’t place any members on the first-team offense, defense or special teams.

Stanford saw Drew Dalman land as the conference’s best center, on the first-team offense, and WR Connor Wedington land as the league’s top returning kick returner, landing on the first-team specialist list.

Michael Wilson and Walker Little placed on the second-team offense at wide receiver and offensive line, respectively, while CB Paulson Adebo also saw his way to the second-team defense. Adebo is fresh off his nomination to the Lott IMPACT Trophy Watch List as well.

Austin Jones and Thomas Booker were selected to the third team, at running back and defensive lineman, respectively, while Jet Toner was the third-team kicker. Ryan Sanborn made it as the fourth-team punter and Wilson landed on the list again, as the fourth-team punt returner.

We had to wait awhile to see him but Davis Mills was selected as the fourth-team quarterback, beating out all but Chase Garbers at Cal, Jayden Daniels at Arizona State and Kedon Slovis of USC, who were each on the lists above Mills. Foster Sarell rounded out Stanford’s selections as he was a fourth-team offensive lineman.
