Jackson because he seems least likely to do well in the NFL. 

 

I'm pretty sure that's the criteria.

haha    Well, Charles Woodson did okay, now didn't he?     One of the few Defensive players ever to win it.

Not sure.  But if I need to take a guess it will be Deshaun Watson.

The voting body's insistence on giving it to a QB Every. Single. Year. has really watered down the meaning of the Heisman Trophy to me. For an award that's supposed to go to the "best player in college football", it always goes to an offensive player somehow. If I were voting this year, I'd have it 1) Jabrill Peppers 2) Lamar Jackson 3) Westbrook 4) Mayfield 5) Watson... Just my opinion though.

My grandson would love to see Peppers win.

Derrick Henry won last year and is a runningback.

Found dead alone in a park in Colorado. Last I read was police found a suicide note that his mother confirmed. Could have been CTE.

Lamar Jackson should still win it IMO. He had a few hiccups at the end of the season, but overall its hard to say anyone had a better year than he did. He combined for nearly 60 touchdowns.

 

Edit: just looked it up and its 51 touchdowns. Still pretty impressive.

I would vote for Jabrill Peppers because he was a crazy good impactful player at multiple positions.

 

My guess is Deshaun Watson wins.

I'm aware of that, but I really thought that was a "meh" selection at the time. I thought McCaffrey should have won it last year. If you watch Stanford, then you know that no one player is more valuable to his team than #5 for the Cardinal.

Definitely a little East Coast bias, if McCaffrey had the season he had last year again this year with the more exposure he got on the east coast with earlier games and what not then he may have been a finalist again.

I'm a bit surprised that no running backs were candidates. The early frontrunners for the position were either injured or had a down season (Fournette and McCaffrey) but I still believe Cook should have been up there along with D'Onta Foreman and Donnell Pumphrey. I think the list should have been:

 

Lamar Jackson

Dalvin Cook

Jabrill Peppers

Baker Mayfield

Patrick Mahomes

 

Watson underwhelmed this year IMO and Westbrook had a good season but it wasn't enough to put him in this group of 5. Foreman, Westbrook, Watson, Pumphrey, and (a bit biased here, but who cares) Derrius Guice would round out my top 10 in that order.

I like Donnell Pumphrey, rushed for over 2,000 yards this year I believe.

Lamar is the youngest player to ever win the heisman. Well deserved, heck of a player that'll only get better.

Watching his speech I was smiling ear to ear because for all these young guys coming up like him and Jabrill sometimes with only one parent and then now they are in NYC for the first time as heisman finalists and Lamar winning it, it's awesome how excited they are, Lamar couldn't contain the excitement I loved it

    • Don't think Boston would do that. I'd rather have both picks too but they will be wanting to keep the young players and open up cap space so they would likely want to move guys they won't re-sign like Avery Bradley and company. I actually think they might want to move Isaiah because he would be due a big contract in a year or whatever and he has the hip injury. Hard to tell if you take a point guard in Fultz and you have Smart already and Rozier....that's a lot of point guards to have. If we got just both picks or also a throw in we would be looking at a true rebuild. We would see us tanking next year and having possibly two top 10 picks to pair with the #1 from this year and Turner. That would be pretty good way to rebuild. That way you just have to sign perhaps one or two free agents with the cap space you free up from losing PG, Teague, CJ, Monta, and AL and you should have a very competitive team. I think Turner is going to be an all-star caliber player. Just have to hit on a couple draft picks and then add a nice free agent or two and you should be able to compete in the East. There is no replacing PG...but if you see that you can't improve the team around him for the long term...you get the best deal you can or you risk your star just walking out on you leaving you with nothing to rebuild with.
    • too late now, but i streamed it live on youtube
    • Yes, You are correct! He's got drug suspension possible. So I wouldn't touch this he's also got some character issues. He;s not the worst guy around or anything but his car was pulled over with a 12 yr old kid smelling of weed and he resisted arrest.   
    • Reggie White? Hes considered the GOAT at his position isn't he? Though JJ Watt has a shot to beat him out.
    • No. Some of those players are going to be underwhelming or outright busts. And the majority of them are going to need time to get acclimated to the NFL's level of speed. There are some positions that just take awhile to develop, the secondary would have a very hard time.    Then to win it they need to go up against much more experienced teams.

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
