Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson:
We all know a quarterback is almost a lock to the win the Heisman and that quarterback is probably Tua Tagoaviloa of Alabama. Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray, West Virginia’s Will Grier and Haskins could still have a say, too.
Etienne is the one running back left who might be able to break into the field. His biggest issue is touches. The sophomore is averaging just under 13 carries per game, but 8.6 yards per carry with 15 touchdowns. If Boston College can mount a challenge against the Tigers in prime time, maybe they will give Etienne a few more meaningful touches and the chance to direct some Heisman attention his way.
