Here Are The Latest Favorites For The Heisman. Number Two Will Shock You

David Hookstead | Reporter

We have new Heisman odds, and Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is slotted in at number two.

The top seven, according to SBR Sports Picks, are as follows:

  1. Bryce Love (RB Stanford) +700
  2. Tua Tagovailoa (QB Alabama) +750
  3. Jonathan Taylor (RB Wisconsin) +850
  4. Jake Fromm (QB Georgia) +1500
  5. Khalil Tate (QB Arizona) +1550
  6. Dwayne Haskins (QB Ohio State) +1650
  7. Will Grier (QB West Virginia) +1800

Is it just me or is it a bit absurd to put a guy who has played one half of important football in the number two spot? Am I going a bit crazy over here? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying Tua isn’t a Heisman caliber gunslinger. He certainly is, but everybody on this list other than Dwayne Haskins has put out a great body of work. (RELATED: THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL WORLD SHOULD FEAR WISCONSIN FOR ONE SIMPLE REASON)

For example, Love and Taylor are the best running backs in America, and we all know it because we watched them shred defenses last year.

There’s no question about what those two men can do with the football. The same goes for Fromm, Tate and Grier when they get under center. All three of them are game changers. Tua? The man won Alabama the national championship with his late game heroics, but he really hasn’t put enough on tape for me to feel comfortable with putting him as the second favorite.

Of course, this is why we play the game. All that matters is what happens on the field, and I can’t see how it plays out.

As for me, I’m all-in on my guy Taylor. He is going to put up some monster numbers this season.
