Pick Analysis: Jose Joaquin Arcega-Whiteside was born in Spain to two professional basketball players.

He garnered honorable mention All-Pac-12 notice as a sophomore, pacing the Cardinal in all three major receiving categories (48-781-16.3, nine TD). He had a strong bowl game against TCU in the Alamo Bowl, scoring three times on five catches totaling 61 yards. Arcega-Whiteside was a team captain in 2018 and garnered second-team All-Pac-12 honors by starting 12 games and catching 63 passes for 1,059 yards (16.8 average) and 14 touchdowns, which ranked in the top five nationally.
