2011 Heisman Candidates

I really am not a fan of this and well I'm not sure while I'm doing it, but I am.  ESPN has their way to influential terrible power poll....these are just my few players  to watch that could take home the Heisman, and also the RoughRider Offensive Player of the Year.

Andrew Luck - QB - Stanford : He would have been the first pick in the NFL draft this year had he come out, and will be this next year most likely.  Should put up big numbers again even though Jim Harbaugh is now with the 49ers.

LaMichael James - RB - Oregon : Another stud in the Pac-12.  Helped led the Ducks to the National Championship game and last years Doak Walker Award winner.  He should have another big year.  Oregon-Stanford is the game of the year in the Pac-12.

James White - RB - Wisconsin / Montee Ball - RB - Wisconsin : The Badgers like to run, a lot!  White ran for 1050 yards last year sharing duties with a John Clay and Montee Ball.  IBell ran just under 1000.  If they are healthy 'they'll put up a lot more than that.

Marcus Lattimore - RB - South Carolina : Who would have thought the ole ball coach would have an stud RB in his offense?  Lattimore ran for almost 1200 yards and 17 scores.  He'll need to do the same to get South Carolina back to the SEC title game.

Trent Richardson - RB - Alabama : In shared time with Mark Ingram, Richardson put up nearly 1600 yards from scrimmage.  This year Ingram is gone and he'll get most of the Tide touches, and Saban will ride him like they rode Ingram.  He could put up big numbers.

Kellen Moore - QB - Boise State : How long has this kid been there?  A Heisman finalist this year, he's passed for 10,000+ yards already for the Broncos.  He's got 38 career wins and is on tap for double digit more.  Should be back in New York for the Heisman Ceremony.

Landry Jones - QB - Oklahoma : In 2 years as the Sooners QB he's already tossed up nearly 8000 yards.  He has a stud WR to throw too in Ryan Broyles and has the weak Big XII to eat up.  He should put up another big year as should Broyles.

Justin Blackmon - WR - Oklahoma State : A physical beast!  Almost 1800 yards receiving and 22 touchdowns in the Cowboys explosive offense.  He should put up around 1500 this year as he will be a marked man and he is most likely the #1 WR taken in the NFL draft.
