Jameis Winston, Florida State
“Famous Jameis” came out of nowhere in 2013 and took the NCAA by storm, throwing for 3,820 yards, 38 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions in his freshman season at Florida State. Winston has also added four rushing touchdowns on the year and led the Seminoles to a 13-0 record and a spot in the BCS title game. His celebrity, however, has took a hit due to being named in the investigation in a sexual assault case that has already drawn criticism from Heisman voters, some even saying that they will not vote for him. The case was closed, however, with no charges being brought against Winston, and with the controversy behind him, he is now the odds-on favorite to become the second straight freshman to win the Heisman Trophy.
