Top 5 Heisman Contenders

1. QB Matt Barkley, USC (Senior)
-Quarterback Matt Barkley decided to return for his senior season and should be the clear front-runner  with the Trojans back in title contention. Barkley is third in all-time career passing at USC passing for 9,054 yards in his first three years. Last season, Barkley had a completion percentage of 69.1, 3,528 passing yards, and 39 touchdown passes.

2. QB Denard Robinson, Michigan (Senior)
-Denard Robinson has become one of the most dynamic players in the country. The past two seasons, Robinson has shown how dangerous he is and that he is the real deal. The Wolverines are now favored to win the Big Ten this season and he is one of the main reasons why. Last season, Robinson rushed for over 1,000 yards, ran for 16 touchdowns, threw for over 2,000 yards, and had 20 touchdown passes.

3. QB Landry Jones, Oklahoma (Senior)
-As shocking as this may seem to College Football fans, Landry Jones is all the All-Time Passing Leader at Oklahoma with 12,379 total yards. Jones has shown to be inconsistent at times, especially at times  last season when the Sooners were expected to be in the National Championship. Jones still was able to pass for an impressive 4,463 yards and 29 touchdown passes. Look for Jones to lead his Sooners to the National Championship this season and prove to the nation that he is one of the elite quarterbacks in the country.

4.  QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas (Senior)
-Tyler Wilson is a stud and possibly even a freak of nature. Wilson has possibly the best arm in the country and led the Hogs with the number one offense in the SEC averaging 36.8 ppg. Wilson passed for 3,638 yards and 24 touchdowns. It's unfortunate that the Hogs have to be in the same division as Alabama and LSU, because the Hogs are one of the best teams in the country. Look for Wilson to put up big numbers again and to fight for the SEC West Title.

5. RB Montee Ball, Wisconsin (Senior)
-The recent off the field problems of Montee Ball and the concussion he suffered shouldn't affect this physical and dynamic runner. Ball was invited to New York for the Heisman Ceremony in 2011, after an impressive season where he led the Badgers to another Big Ten Championship and Rose Bowl birth. Ball rushed for 1,923 yards and 33 touchdowns last season. Ball has proved to the nation that he can do it all, whether it's picking up big chunks of yards at one time in crucial situations, catching the ball, or even passing the ball. With the departure of QB Russell Wilson to the NFL, Ball will be the main reason if Wisconsin wins another Big Ten title this year.

Just missed the cut:

QB Collin Klein, Kansas State (Senior)
QB Geno Smith, West Virginia (Senior)
QB Aaron Murray, Georgia (Junior)
RB Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina (Junior)
WR/KR De'Anthony Thomas, Oregon (Sophomore)
