As usual, there is a tremendous amount of talent in College Football this year. It's tough to narrow such a talented pool of individuals down to a top five, but I have managed to do it. It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that Cameron Newton is one of these five. But, Newton does not have it locked up by any means. There are plenty of studs out there that can steal the trophy from him, some of which are not even on this list.
LaMichael James and Justin Blackmon, are the nation’s top players in their respective positions. They have separated themselves from others in their position, and the second half of the season will prove their legitimacy, or lack thereof.
There are also many quarterbacks out there pushing Cameron Newton in his quest for the trophy. I chose to highlight Kellen Moore and Andrew Luck. Although, many will argue that the freshman phenom’s Taylor Martinez and Denard Robinson also deserve to be in the discussion, and they probably do.
It's still early in the season, many things can and will change. Losses and/or injures will crush the hopes of some of these contenders.
My top five are: Cameron Newton, Kellen Moore, LaMichael James, Andrew Luck, and Justin Blackmon
Here is why...
