Did you know that five of the past six quarterbacks to win the Heisman were dual-threat guys?
Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford in 2008 is the only pro-style quarterback to have taken home the bronze statuette since USC’s Matt Leinart won in 2004.
Since then, it’s been Troy Smith of Ohio State (2006), Tim Tebow of Florida (2007), Cam Newton of Auburn (2010), Robert Griffin III of Baylor (2011) and Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M (2012), all dual-threat players.
The rising trend of superstar dual-treat quarterbacks continues into this season with a deluge of talented guys who can get it done both ways.
Those with the most potential for productivity are ranked here, with the starting criteria being at least 3,000 total yards in their last active season.
Extra credit is given to dualists who have earned a higher percentage of their total yards by running the ball. This gives an advantage in the rankings to guys who aren’t just great passers but who manage to earn a few extra yards rushing on the side.
