The last five Heisman Trophy winners have been quarterbacks. Along with Florida junior Chris Leak, these returning passers figure to have the best chance of extending that streak.
Matt Leinart, Sr., USC
Mentor Norm Chow may have left for the NFL, but the 2004 Heisman winner still benefits from the nation's most talented supporting cast.
Vince Young, Jr., Texas
The Rose Bowl MVP (he ran for four scores and threw for one) will play behind four returning starters on the offensive line.
Drew Tate, Jr., Iowa
His 2,786 passing yards and 62.1% completion rate helped Iowa go 10--2 despite the nation's second-worst rushing attack.
Reggie McNeal, Sr., Texas A&M
He finally came of age last season, setting school records with 718 rushing yards by a quarterback and 2,791 passing yards.
