USC offensive guard Andrew Vorhees has been named to the Pro Football Focus Midseason All-American team.
I like Vorhees, who has overcome a lot of obstacles that the Clay Helton Era unfairly put him through, but does any USC linemen deserve to be an All-American?
Vorhees had two holding penalties in the Arizona State game, including one that nullified an 82-yard TD pass. That’s not really a critique but we’re talking about an All-American team. This is why I often question Pro Football Focus rankings.
- The bye week is important for backup QB Miller Moss, who needs more reps. Before the season, you might think Moss would have played more in games like Stanford, Fresno State or Arizona State. But the ASU game turned out to be a lot closer than expected.
Caleb Williams is an exceptional QB but Moss needs more snaps in case of an emergency.
- You know who has a lot of penalties this season from an unexpected spot? Wide receiver Mario Williams. He had two false starts and a holding penalty against Utah; two false starts against Oregon State and a pass interference penalty vs. Fresno State.
