Athlon projects all-league team(s)

It's getting to be that time when we can officially start transitioning from the offseason to the preseason.

And with the preseason comes preseason teams. Or in the case of Athlon Sports, the projection of the 2013 all-league team. You can be sure Ted and I will put our colossal melons together at some point and put out a preseason team. But we like to keep you waiting.

In the meantime, Athlon released all three levels of its 2013 All-Pac-12 projected team. A couple of minor disagreements here and there -- but mostly a strong list with the usual suspects you'd expect to earn preseason honors.

They also break down how many players from each team made each squad -- which is always fun. Oregon leads the way with 13 players, followed by Stanford (10) and Oregon State and USC (9). The Ducks have the most first-teamers (6) followed by USC (5).
