Oklahoma QB, Sr.
CAMPAIGN PLATFORM: Underrated record-setting passer
With Jones playing behind a line that has 102 combined starts and in front of some talented backs, his Sooners have the foundation for a run at a national title, but a go-to receiver will need to emerge.
Another 4,000-yard season seems a given for the Sooners' alltime leader in yards (12,379) and TD passes (93), though he has to cut down on his picks (15 in '11) to become the third Heisman winner of the Bob Stoops era.
September (vs. Kansas State) and October (vs. Texas and Notre Dame) offer big tests, and a strong stretch drive against ranked West Virginia, Oklahoma State and TCU could punch Jones's ticket to New York City.
South Carolina RB, Jr.
