2. Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia
It is hard to say that Chubb wouldn’t have been in New York and possibly would have won the award last year if not for a near career-ending knee injury. He had a fantastic freshman season replacing the injured Todd Gurley and was on his way to an even better season in 2015.
He seems to be almost 100-percent and you can expect him to compete for the Heisman Trophy this year. After rushing for 747 yards and a nation-leading 8.1 yards per carry in just six games, the Bulldogs could break their 30-plus year streak without a Heisman winner in 2015.
