10. Jameis Winston, Sophomore Quarterback, Florida State Seminoles

Last Game: 25-for-48 (52.1%), 401 Yards, 3 TD’s (Defeated Louisville Cardinals 42-31)

2014 Season: 174-for-259 (67.2%), 2,279 Yards, 16 TD’s, 9 INT’s

The numbers here don’t matter. Use your eyes. Jameis Winston still deserves to be in the Heisman discussion, regardless of the questions surrounding him at this moment.

I’m going to state right here on this site that until he is charged with something, I care nothing about the “character” or “integrity” questions. With the Heisman vote, I only care about who the best player is.

Winston doesn’t have numbers as great as last year and has accuracy coming and going, which is why he’s at the bottom of this watch, but I only need to use my eyes to know that he is still one of the best players in college football. The sophomore quarterback keeps saving his team and willing them to victory every week, and he did it again against Louisville. Even if he is the one who dug the hole with 3 interceptions, he got the Seminoles out of it in the second half with a sensational performance. He is one of the most valuable players in college football right now, and we’re not going to ignore that just because we don’t like some of the things he’s done.

Cry about that some other time. This article is strictly football based. And from a football perspective, Winston deserves to be a Heisman candidate.
