There is a lot of history to the Davey O’Brien Award. Think of some of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play and there is a good chance they are part of the select group to win the award. Names such as Steve Young, Peyton Manning and Vince Young are just a few of the legendary players who have been honored.
Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M was last year's winner.
It should be fun trying to decide a winner this season with so many great quarterbacks to choose from. The watch list has been released by daveyobrien.org and it includes 34 of the nation's top quarterbacks.
Manziel returns for a chance to win back-to-back awards, while AJ McCarron and Teddy Bridgewater won't make that feat so easy. There are also a couple of sleepers who should be on the voters' radar.
