3. QB Caleb Williams, Oklahoma

The skinny: Replacing preseason Heisman Trophy favorite Spencer Rattler during the Texas game, Williams remained the starter for the remainder of the season and often played like a veteran. Ending the season with 1,674 yards, 18 touchdowns and just four interceptions while running for 408 yards and six touchdowns, Williams appears to be Norman’s next big quarterback.

Farrell’s opinion: Williams has been a lifesaver for the Sooners this season as he provided a spark when Rattler faltered. This is a big surprise as Rattler was supposed to be a Heisman finalist, but Williams was a five star talent so we thought he would do well when he got the chance.

2. RB TreVeyon Henderson, State of Ohio

The skinny: Going into the season, there was a debate over who would be the star in Columbus this season. That question was quickly answered by Henderson, who finished the season with 1,172 yards and 15 touchdowns on the ground, third in both categories in the Big Ten, and also 285 yards and four touchdowns in the air.

Farrell’s opinion: Henderson came with a lot of hype, and it lived up to that and then a little bit. We’ve been criticized for not having it as a five-star, and that certainly seems like a big mistake. He has explosive speed and looks like a future Heisman winner.

3. TE Brock Browser, Georgia

The skinny: There was some optimism about Bowers’ potential coming into the season, but not many people expected the performance he produced. Leading the Bulldogs into receptions (47), receiving yards (791) and receiving touchdowns (11), he quickly became the biggest threat in the passing game. He also showed his athleticism by adding a running touchdown.

Farrell’s opinion: Bowers intervened quickly and filled a much-needed void in the Georgia offensive. It also ruined it for anyone who believes UGA doesn’t use tight end enough. He was an instant impact star and was the best offensive weapon for a playoff team.
