Tony Barnhart of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution has his top Heisman guys heading into the year.
The front runner? Darren McFadden of Arkansas.
He rushed for 1,647 yards (5.8 per carry) last season but McFadden also showed his versatility by lining up at quarterback in Arkansas’s “Wildcat” formation, where he completed 7 of 9 passes. That kind of talent captures the imagination of Heisman voters.
