Six Pac-12 players are Heisman candidates

Six Pac-12 players made the initial 28-player Heisman Trophy Watch List, published by the Heisman Pundit blog.

The Pac-12 players are:

Ka'Deem Carey, Jr., RB, Arizona

Kevin Hogan, So., QB, Stanford

Brett Hundley, So., QB, UCLA

Marqise Lee, Jr., WR, USC

Marcus Mariota, So., QB, Oregon

De'Anthony Thomas, Jr., RB, Oregon

Makes sense. And if you were making a list of the top 10 candidates, both Lee and Mariota would surely be on it.

You potentially could add Arizona State QB Taylor Kelly and Washington RB Bishop Sankey to the list, but these six probably already register in the minds of Heisman voters even outside the West Coast.

Obviously, guys will be added and subtracted from the list as the season wears on.
