2008 Heisman Watch Update

Colt McCoy continues to impress even with the loss to Texas Tech. He is the most NFL ready arm in school, but that doesn't always make you the Heisman Trophy front-runner, since it is an award for the nation's most outstanding college football player.
Graham Harrell of the still undefeated Red Raiders is making it look too easy, but his short and soft throws don't impress me very much. Not taking anything away from him, but no one has figured out how to get to him before he gets rid of the ball and they are putting up unreal numbers. I think he is better than Ty Detmer for BYU back in the day, but I don't think he is the best in the land.
Tim Tebow isn't being asked to carry his team on his back this season, but as far as football player's go, he is still the best football player at the college level. He doesn't have the biggest upside for being an NFL signal caller, in fact, he has a bigger chance of playing a fullback/tight end hybrid than QB, but his toughness on the ground allows his reciever to get wide open through the air and the Gators are in position to win another national championship if they beat Alabama in the SEC title game. The lefty won't have the numbers of last year, but he should walk away with the same trophy in December.
