1. Denard Robinson (Michigan)-Shoelace is by far the best player I have watched this season. He leads the nation in rushing and his passing is good enough to keep Michigan competing for the Big Ten this season. While it's true he is prone to injury with all the rushing attempts and hits he will take there is little doubt he is the leading candidate at this point. The kid is pure electricity with the ball in his hands.

2. Taylor Martinez (Nebraska)-Just a freshman Martinez has taken Lincoln by storm. Bringing back distant memories of Eric Crouch and Tommy Frazier, T-Magic has rushed for 496 yards while averaging 9.3 ypc to go along with 8 TDs rushing. Nebraska could go to a BCS Championship game with the freshman at QB. Sounds Heisman to me.

3. Kellen Moore (Boise State)-All Moore does is win games. He has had two big, outstanding performances in primetime wins against Virginia Tech and Oregon State. He reminds me a lot of Matt Leinart. Not great size or arm but he has tremendous accuracy and all he does is win. Have I mentioned he wins ball games.

4. Patrick Peterson (LSU)-Peterson is the best defensive player in the country along with being the best return man. He's a lockdown corner and the only defensive player who has a legit shot of getting invited to New York.

5. Andrew Luck (Stanford)-Luck is the best pure pro-style quarterback in the nation. He's on pace to throw for 33 TDs and only 6 INTs and with the way Stanford's defense is playing he could lead them to a PAC-10 Title. If Stanford goes undefeated then Luck wins the Heisman running away. He has a chance to prove to voters his candidacy this week with a tough road game in Eugene in primetime. If he comes out victorious with another great performance he could leap ahead of Shoelace.

Outside looking in: Terrelle Pryor (Ohio State), Cam Newton (Auburn), Mark Ingram (Alabama)
