ESPN Heisman Poll

We're one week into the 2015 college football season. Who's the Heisman Trophy frontrunner? 

According to the sportsbook Bovada, it's Ohio State's Cardale Jones, but according to ESPN, it's a running back. 

The ESPN Experts have released their first Heisman Trophy poll. Alabama running back Derrick Henry, who rushed for 147 yards and three touchdowns against Wisconsin, is on top. Georgia's Nick Chubb trails. 

">September 9, 2015

Here's the full poll:

  1. Alabama's Derrick Henry - 26 points
  2. Georgia's Nick Chubb - 23 points
  3. Ohio State's Braxton Miller - 20 points
  4. Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliot - 19 points
  5. TCU's Trevone Boykin - 17 points
  6. Notre Dame's Malik Zaire - 11 points
  7. Ohio State's Cardale Jones - 10 points
  8. UCLA's Josh Rosen - 7 points
  9. USC's Cody Kessler - 6 points
  10. Baylor's Seth Russell - 5 points
  11. Arkansas' Brandon Allen - 3 points
  12. Clemson's Deshaun Watson - 2 points
  13. Texas A&M's Myles Garrett - 1 point

Henry is probably the safe bet right now, but Braxton Miller and his ridiculous spin move would lead our poll after Week 1.
