The Chocolate Heisman Standings

5. Tim Tebow, QB, Florida: 38-of-64 passing, 489 yards, 5 TDs; 34 rushes, 118 yards.
Not to say that Tebow's number's are not good, but he is in the five position due to the fact he is the defending Heisman winner. Florida is a much deeper team this year so the odds if him putting up the numbers he did last year are slim to none, but he is still a beast of the highest order.

4. Jeremy Maclin, WR/KR, Missouri: 26 receptions, 391 yards, 4 TDs; 8 rushes, 43 yards, 1 TD; 12 punt returns, 123 yards; 7 kickoff returns, 217 yards, 1 TD.
Simply put, he is the most elusive man in all of college football. If you get the ball in his hands in open space he is a threat to go the distance every time.

3. Javon Ringer, RB, Michigan State: 143 rushes, 699 yards, 11 TDs; 4 receptions, 37 yards; 9 kickoff returns, 200 yards.
While I believe that the Big Ten is overrated, on thing that is the workhorse playing in East Lansing. The extremely durable back leads the nation in over 30. Oh and did I mention he returns kicks as well? If he keeps this up he could bring a little of the luster back to the Big Ten that the SEC has beaten off of them in the past few years.

2. Knowshown Moreno, RB, Georgia: 69 rushes, 455 yards, 9 TDs; 7 receptions, 96 yards; 2 punt returns, 30 yards.
IT's hard for the Puma to put Knowshown on here because it would mean admitting my boy Young Swole was right. But he hit the nail on the head when he talked about this youngster being the most complete back in the nation after seeing his virtuoso performance in the desert last weekend.

And the leader of the pack in the innagural Puma Heisman standings is...
Chase Daniel, QB, Missouri: 101-of-133 passing, 1,412 yards, 12 TDs, 1 INT; 14 rushes, 74 yards.
The man is putting up Tecmo Bowl number this season and he plays in the highly competitive Big 12 which earns him extra points in my eyes. And although he played Buffalo last week he did complete 20 consecutive passes which is impressive no matter who you play.
