Drafting USC's all-time team

If you had every USC Trojan who ever played the game at your disposal, every coach who ever walked the sideline, how would you assemble your team?

That's a question the WeAreSC folks tackled when Garry Paskwietz, Johnny Curren, Steve Bisheff and Greg Katz got together to draft their all-time team.

Each writer drafted starters at all 22 positions, plus a kicker, punter and head coach for a total of 25 picks.

You can see the complete draft here.

Here's a peek at how the first five rounds played out:

First round

  • QB Matt Leinart

  • TB Charles White

  • Coach John McKay

  • TB Marcus Allen

Second round

  • Coach Pete Carroll

  • TB O.J. Simpson

  • QB Carson Palmer

  • S Ronnie Lott

Third round

Seems like a fun offseason exercise. So let's open it up for the entire Pac-12. Send me who you would draft as your No. 1 all-time pick for your team with one sentence (not an entire essay) explaining your pick. I'll run some of them later this week. If you missed your chance to earn a fictitious Pac-12 blog junior deputy badge during the reader-submitted future power rankings, this is your chance.
