College football is a cyclical sport, and just when you think there can't possibly be a better player than Joe Quarterback over here, a Mr. John Football (no relation to Manziel) comes along.
The Pac-12 will be highlighted by the sensational talents of Marcus Mariota, Brett Hundley and others, but perhaps more fun will come from discovering new players waiting in the shadows, hoping to be discovered.
We're not talking about the players primed to take that natural step forward, either. We're looking at the sleepers who will step into the spotlight and put up big numbers. Think wide receiver Jaelen Strong in 2013 or Ka'Deem Carey from the year before.
So who will begin to create their true legacy in 2014?
