Heisman Trophy hopefuls not named Tim Tebow:
1) Chris Wells, RB, Ohio State: On a team with a pedestrian QB and no other real rushing threat, Wells was good for 5.9 yards per carry last season. If he can do that this year and keep the Buckeyes in the national title hunt, it's hard to see him not taking the trophy.
2. Knowshon Moreno, RB, Georgia: Speaking of highlight-worthy players, Moreno's going to lose carries in the Bulldogs' deep backfield, but he could more than make up for it with voters by ripping off a rewind-worthy play in one of Georgia's many big games.
3. Pat White, QB, West Virginia: His penchant for slaloming through hapless tacklers is well-known. But for him to appear in New York, the Mountaineers will need to stay in the national title picture.
4. Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri: No one has less control over his Heisman bid than Maclin. For one thing, WRs don't win unless they can return kicks (ask Desmond Howard, Tim Brown or even Johnny Rodgers). So Maclin - now the primary target for Chase Daniel - will need to hope that teams keep kicking to him, despite ample evidence (2 punt return TDs; 1 kick return) that this is unwise.
5. Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma: Although he's not a dual threat like Tim Tebow, he's a better passer. The top-rated one in the country last year. With a mammoth line to protect him, he could take the Sooners to the national title game. Worked for Jason White and this guy has more talent.
6. Chase Daniel, QB, Missouri: Improving on his 4,000-yard, 33-TD performance from last season would probably go a long way in voters' minds for one of last year's Heisman finalists. Leading the Tigers to the Big 12 title would help even more, especially if it's over Oklahoma.
