Mark Ingram 7/2

Ingram rushed for 1,658 yards on 271 carries as a sophomore last year. The problem is backup Trent Richardson is a very good player and will take away some carries. The team will also throw the ball more with returning quarterback Greg McElroy.

Terrelle Pryor 5/1

Pryor is another player who will only be a junior this year. The Ohio State signal caller had a breakout Rose Bowl against Oregon (266 passing yards). He’s already a great runner, so if his passing skills keep improving, watch out!

Ryan Mallett 12/1

This Arkansas signal caller is the prototype Heisman candidate at 6-foot-7 with a rocket arm. The Michigan transfer is playing his second year with the Razorbacks and he needs to have better games against the SEC elite like Alabama.

Jake Locker 12/1

The Washington quarterback surprised everyone by spurning the NFL. The Heisman voters may take that into consideration. Coach Steve Sarkisian will certainly give him every opportunity to put up big numbers. He’s undervalued at these odds.

John Clay 12/1

The Wisconsin running back is trying to follow in the footsteps of Ron Dayne, who won the award in 1999. Clay is taller than Dayne, but he’s just as much of a bruiser. He ran for 1,517 yards on 291 carries, but has a lot of talented backs behind him who could steal carries.

Kellen Moore 15/1

The Boise State quarterback threw for over 3,500 yards last year. More remarkably, he had 39 touchdowns versus three interceptions. The Broncos have a great chance to make the national title game if they get by non-conference Virginia Tech. Moore will put up big stats again and is very undervalued at these odds.

Other Heisman Favorties

Case Keenum, Houston QB (12/1)

Dion Lewis Pittsburgh RB (12/1)
