On a recent edition of College Football Live, the much maligned (but IMHO very reasonable) former Bama QB, Greg McElroy, named JK Dobbins when asked to name a non-QB that we could see in NY at the Heisman trophy ceremony at the end of the year.
He described JK as possibly the best RB in the nation his Freshman year, and justified the decreased numbers in 2018 resulting from split carries with Mike Weber. He also propped up The Ohio State Buckeyes by saying they are a team that gets a lot of attention and has a strong platform from which to showcase the big plays. He stated his belief that JK will be very complimentary to Justin Fields and that he has a lot of skill around him.
Jonathan Vilma named Jonathan Taylor from Wisconsin as his pick.
Bovada has Jonathan Taylor as the most likely non-QB to win the Heisman. Below are Bovada’s current odds overall:
1) Tagovailoa at +250
2) Lawrence at +275
3) Justin Fields at +900
4) Jalen Hurts at +1000
5) Adrian Martinez at +1100
6) Jake Fromm at +1400
7) Sam Ehlinger at +1500
8) Jonathan Taylor and Justin Herbert at +2000
Is the inclusion of Dobbins in the Heisman discussion reasonable at this point? Was listing Dobbins a good pick by McElroy, or are there others you would have mentioned ahead of Dobbins?
