What About Daniel Thomas?

Been thinking about some Heisman darkhorses for this season and senior Kansas State running back Daniel Thomas keeps popping up in my head.

Way back in week three of last year, I wrote that he’d be a load for the Big 12 to handle and that’s exactly what happened as the 6-2, 227-pounder led the league in rushing with 1,265 yards (he also added 11 touchdowns and caught 25 passes).

This year, I expect him to add to that total and make a bid for All-American status.  Can he challenge for the Heisman?  Naturally, his candidacy will depend on the fortunes of his team.

Meanwhile, I’m keeping my eye out and putting him on my short list of Heisman long shots.
