Spartan Nation 2013 Top Heisman Candidate List

1. QB AJ McCarron Alabama American’s most underrated player on America’s best team.

2. RB T.J. Yeldon Alabama On America’s best team he will be the key RB. Will lose votes with his QB.

3. QB Taylor Martinez Nebraska If Nebraska can find a defense it could be his year.

4. QB Aaron Murray Georgia Somehow someway Georgia finds a way to hurt themselves every year. If they can avoid that Murray could be the man.

5. QB Johnny Manziel TEXAS A&M Even with better stats we know how hard it is to win this award twice.

6. DE Jadeveon Clowney S Carolina Should be higher, but we all know defensive players don’t win. If this truly was for the best player, he would be at or near the top.

7. QB Braxton Miller Ohio St I personally like Braxton and think he is a very good player. I don’t see OSU running the table. IF they do, and I think that is a big if, he moves to the top.

8. QB Tajh Boyd Clemson Great player on a team that will have a tough schedule.

9. QB Teddy Bridgewater Louisville Great player, but can the Cards perform well enough as a team to get him there?

10. WR Marqise Lee USC not sold on his team or coach, but he is a great player. Long road.

A name that isn’t getting any respect?

QB Devin Gardner Michigan As Brady Hoke is rebuilding Michigan, I think they are an eight win team this season because of youth. If they can get to double digit wins, Gardner has a great shot if the top players fall off.
