Earlier this month, I published the preseason edition of CFB Huddle’s weekly Heisman Top 10. This ranking is a projection of the Heisman voting landscape based on prominence and media buzz.
For me personally, there are a number of players whose credentials warrant more discussion for college football’s most prestigious, individual honor. Likewise, there are under-the-radar candidates yet to break out but who have the necessary pieces to emerge in the Heisman race.
The following are the six contenders who either lack buzz currently or have factors working against them that might preclude their Heisman candidacy. With monster performances in the coming year, however, don’t be surprised to see any of the six in New York City.
