Heisman trophy winner Robert Griffin III announced his intent to forgo his senior year at Baylor to enter the draft. He will join fellow juniors Andrew Luck (who was runner-up) and Trent Richardson (who came in third).
With the top three candidates this year taking their talents to the NFL, we look ahead to the next winner of arguably the most prestigious, individual award in sports today. Although two players who were finalists for the award in New York, Montee Ball and Tyrann Mathieu, still remain, neither looks to win the award this year.
These are the five men I see taking the trip to New York next year for the ceremony.
