Sports Illustrated college football analyst, Chris Johnson, thinks these five players will vie for the 2017 Heisman Trophy.
We’re one week removed from the end of college football, but that won’t stop us from looking ahead to next season. The 2016 season saw a stellar performance from Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson. What will 2017 bring?
Well, SI’s Chris Johnson ranked five candidates for next year’s Heisman.
Two players on Johnson’s list made the trip to New York last year, with Jackson taking home top honors. The list features four quarterbacks and just one running back. Naturally with the importance of the position, the Heisman Trophy has traditionally been a quarterback award.
