2020 Early Heisman Early Odds: Best Value Candidate No. 4
QB Trevor Lawrence, Clemson 4/1
Lawrence might be the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, and he’s going to be the superstar of superstars on all the All-America lists, but will the stats be there?
Will he be given any credit for rocking and rolling against what should be double-digit inferior competition – at least for 11 of the 12 games?
He’s so good and Clemson will be so fantastic that Lawrence will be the early leaderboard to win the Heisman.
At 4/1 the value isn’t all that bad especially because of one game in early November, but will that be enough?
If Notre Dame is fantastic, and if Lawrence leaves South Bend with a win after a brilliant performance, then yeah, he’s going to be right there in the final mix.
Compared to the other top quarterback candidates, will the overall statistics be there to actually win the Heisman? Will he end up splitting the Heisman attention with RB Travis Etienne?
At the very least, he’s not a huge call, and again, the value isn’t all that bad.
