Heisman Trophy 2016: Top five candidates from the PAC-12

2. Royce Freeman, RB, Oregon


While the top player on our list is a running back that can do anything you ask him, Freeman is a classic runner that an get up and down the field at will. He is one of the toughest running backs in the country and should probably be getting more respect.

Over the last two years, he has rushed for over 3,200 yards and led the PAC-12 in rushing touchdowns each year for a grand total of 35. It should be fun to watch him continue to mature into one of the best backsĀ competing for the Heisman Trophy.
