Heisman Watch 2017: Final

 

1. Baker Mayfield – QB Oklahoma: 262-369 71.0% 4,340 yards 41 TD 5 INT 310 yards rushing 5 rushing TD. LW 1.

Mayfield should win the Heisman and was the frontrunner the last 3-4 weeks of the season.

 

2. Bryce Love – RB Stanford: 237 carries 1,973 yards 8.3 YPC 17 TD. LW 2.

If Love plays in the Stanford Bowl Game he will most certainly crack 2,000 yards rushing on the season.

 

3. Lamar Jackson – QB Louisville: 241-399 60.4% 3,489 yards 25 TD 6 INT 208 carries 1,443 yards 6.9 YPC 17 TD. LW 3.

Jackson should get another invite to New York but won't go home with the trophy this season.

 

4. Rashaad Penny – RB San Diego State: 275 carries 2027 yards 7.4 YPC 19 TD 2 receiving TD 15 KR 459 yards 30.6 YPR 2 TD 2 PR 70 yards 1 TD. LW 4.

Has a healthy lead in the rushing battle at the FBS level.

 

5. Saquon Barkley – RB Penn State: 199 carries 1,134 yards 5.7 YPC 16 TD 47 catches 594 yards 12.6 YPC 3 TD 14 KR 418 yards 29.9 YPR 2 TD 2-2 36 yards 1 passing TD. LW 5.

Is gradually moving the wrong way down the board.

 

6. Jonathan Taylor – RB Wisconsin: 273 carries 1,847yards 6.8 YPC 13 TD. LW 6.

Should be the top freshman on the ballot.

 

7. Mason Rudolph – QB Oklahoma State: 297-457 65.0% 4,553 yards 35 TD 9 INT 10 rushing TD.  LW 7.

Has more combined touchdowns than Lamar Jackson on the season.

 

8. Josh Adams – RB Notre Dame: 191 carries 1,386 yards 7.3 YPC 9 TD. LW 8.

Hasn't been finding the end zone enough over the last month of the year.

 

9. Devin Singletary – RB Florida Atlantic: 275 carries 1,796 yards 6.5 YPC 29 TD 18 cathces 185 yards 10.0 YPG 1 TD. LW 10.

10. Riley Ferguson – QB Memphis: 278-441 62.2% 3,971 yards 36 TD 9 INT 6 rushing TD. LW 9.

Ended the season on a high note.
