All sorts of Pac-12 predictions are on the way in the next few months, and we'll kick things off by looking at players who will surprise us in 2014.
One way to look at the subject is to compare it to a "most improved" list, but there are a number of players we expect to be better in 2014. For example, Brett Hundley has yet to truly put it all together, and if he does, he'll be one of the most improved players in the conference. However, that wouldn't really surprise anyone.
Sometimes surprises can be a bad thing, like when a hyped-up player underperforms (i.e. Matt Barkley in 2012). But it's hard to actually predict a player regressing without being inside the program, and besides, we like to keep things positive.
So without any further rambling, here are five players who will surprise us all in 2014.
