I said on my radio show last week that the Heisman trophy is Andrew Luck’s to lose. Well, I don’t have a problem admitting I was wrong, because Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III has straight up stolen the top spot from Luck in my eyes, and is currently the most dominant player in college football.
1. Robert Griffin III, Quarterback, Baylor
This is a player who has more touchdowns on the season (13) than he does incomplete passes (12). That is just absolutely sick, regardless of the level of competition. Griffin is getting it done at an incredibly high level and on a very consistent basis. This guy is very bright, and right now is the most dominant player in college football.
2. Andrew Luck, Quarterback, Stanford
Luck is still having a very good season with 786 yards and eight touchdowns, and he helped Stanford to a big victory over Pac 12 foe Arizona. Luck is still probably going to be the top pick in next year’s draft, and to be honest he still has a great shot of winning the Heisman trophy. He’s one of the best quarterbacks in the country.
3. Kellen Moore, Quarterback, Boise State
There is probably not a more consistent player in all of college football over the last few years than Kellen Moore. Moore has completed 79 percent of his passes on the season with 12 touchdowns and only two interceptions. He is playing excellent football right now, a huge reason why Boise State is in the thick of the BCS race.
4. Marcus Lattimore, Running Back, South Carolina
After a huge performance last week, Lattimore took a slight step back against Vandy in terms of his production on the ground, but he was a consistent threat through the air as well, combining for 150 yards from scrimmage and two total touchdowns. He is the most complete running back in college football and a dominant player.
STOCK: NO CHANGE
5. Landry Jones, Quarterback, Oklahoma
If Jones is to come back and take the top spot, he’s going to have to have more games like he did on Saturday against Missouri, only cutting down on the interceptions. He helped the Sooners to a victory with four total touchdowns and 448 yards through the air. He has completed more than 72 percent of his passes this year, which is phenomenal.
6. Russell Wilson, Quarterback, Wisconsin
Wilson makes his way to the Heisman list for the first time this season, and his spot is well-deserved. He has been an absolute surgeon for the Badgers, carving apart opposing defenses to the tune of 1,136 yards passing with 11 touchdowns and a lonely interception. He also has 108 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground, helping the Badgers earn a reputation as one of the most dominant teams in the nation right now.
