We are rounding out the college football season, and it is about time for us to talk about the final Heisman watch standings. If you've read my site before, you would know that recent history favors the QB's playing in the National Championship game, and that may end up being the case this year. This year is a strange one however, because it just doesn't feel like we have that elite gamechanger on offense. There is no Cam Newton, RG3, Mark Ingram, or Tim Tebows, but we do have some guys that could win the trophy.

If you look at the most important (and best) players on a team then you would have to like a few other guys, but here are the current rankings:

1) Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State

 This is a hard one for me to fall in love with. Sure he has a lot of traits that rival Tim Tebow's, but he just doesn't look the part. He has led Kansas State to a 10-0 record, but he really doesn't have many signature wins over close & competitve teams. He hasn't had to throw the ball to win the game, and he just doesn't look like a QB that could win when he really needed to. He might win it, but It's hard to put him in the hall of greats when he hasn't had 20+ completions in a game.

2) Johnny Manziel, QB, TAMU

Manziel does pass the look test, and he has done more than any Freshman should, but it is hard to think that voters are going to put a Freshman into the winners seat. Manziel does a little bit of everything, and he does have signature wins though, so he may be able to pull it off.

3) Braxton Miller, QB, Ohio State

If Ohio State hadn't been blacklisted from the BCS this year, they would be ranked in the top-4 of the BCS. They also might have the Heisman front runner in Miller who has done a ton this season. He passes the looks test, he has some great talent, and it is hard to believe that his team would be as successful without him.

4) Manti Te'o, LB, Notre Dame

If the Heisman weren't set up for offensive beasts to win, then Te'o likely would be the front runner. He controls a very talented defense, and he has a knack for being in every play. He is the best player on a very talented team which usually does wonders for Heisman voters.

5) Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon

This won't happen. Not because Mariota hasn't been every part of spectacular, but he it isn't going to happen. We don't even know if Mariota is the third most important asset on this Oregon offense behind Kenjon Barner and DeAnthony Thomas. If LaMichael James didn't win a Heisman, then it is going to be hard to have a freshman QB win one.
