Remember, this isn’t about who the best player is. If this was about the NFL Draft, Trevor Lawrence is the one of ones. In the Heisman race, he won’t have the raw stats.
As always, if you’re an investor, take The Field – not Justin Fields – if possible. However, the correct answers are (keeping in mind that I picked Khalil Tate before last year started … but got Baker Mayfield right the previous preseason) …
The Winner Will Be … QB Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama
Finalists: RB JK Dobbins, Ohio State; RB Travis Etienne, Clemson
Tua, Trevor Lawrence, Joe Burrow
Trevor Lawrence, Tua Tagovailoa and Shea Patterson. The two College Football Playoff finalists continue to put up gaudy numbers, but a newcomer joins, as Shea Patterson benefits from having an offensive coordinator who highlights his capabilities.
It’s Tua Tagovailoa vs. Trevor Lawrence as we get started. I’ll throw in Sam Ehlinger as the third. I also think Jonathan Taylor and Justin Herbert will have decent shots at it, maybe Jake Fromm too. Some dark-horses: Jalen Hurts, Justin Fields, D’Eriq King, Khalil Tate and Brock Purdy.
Tua Tagovailoa, Trevor Lawrence, Justin Fields
Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence, Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts and Ohio State RB J.K. Dobbins.

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, quarterback Trevor Lawrence of Clemson and Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts will be the top three Heisman candidates. The top two are better throwers but Hurts is a winner and will become a better passer in Lincoln Riley’s system.
