If the Heisman truly did go to the best player, these guys would be on the watch lists.
JAKE LONG, OT, Michigan - A Joe Thomas-type who'll be the first player drafted next April from a very talented Michigan offense.
CALAIS CAMPBELL, DE, Miami - The Hurricanes' struggles last season overshadowed a heck of year by Campbell, who might be the best defensive player in the country this season.
RYAN TORAIN, RB, Arizona State - Ran for 1,229 yards last season, and most outside Tempe had no idea. NFL scouts, however, did notice the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder.
EARL BENNETT, WR, Vanderbilt - Just 48 catches away from becoming the SEC's career leader, he had 82 grabs for 1,146 yards last season, which wasn't even good enough to be a third-team AP All-American.
DAN CONNOR, LB, Penn State - The worst-kept secret in State College last year was that Connor outplayed two-time All-American Paul Posluszny.
