If you would like a job with the expanding Pac-12 Conference/Network, here’s where you should look.
Already time for a 2013 mock draft from collegefootballnews.com and this one is a “talker” as Matt Barkley drops to sixth while Robert Woods goes fourth. Full draft here.
The Pac-12 ranked fourth in the NFL draft with 28 players drafted. That trailed the SEC, of course, which had 42, the Big Ten (41) and ACC (31).

Here is the local cover for Athlon’s magazine with Matt Barkley on the cover. The magazine debates whether USC or Oregon wins the Pac-12 here.
