Reigning Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel has to be the favorite in the SEC exiting spring. But the one thing we’ve learned is that repeat winners maybe shouldn’t be the favorite, knowing Archie Griffin is the only two-time Heisman winner in the history of the award.
However, Johnny Manziel could make history yet again. Regardless of whether or not he accomplishes this mighty feat, it will sure be fun watching him try week after week.
Heisman Pundit posted a post-spring watch list, and six players from the SEC made it on the list.
Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia
Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
AJ McCarron, QB, Alabama
Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
TJ Yeldon, RB, Alabama
On the heels of Manti Te’o’s traction for the award – legitimate or not, it paved the way for Clowney to make a legit run.
