Rank 'Em: Heisman Watch 2009

Created: August 11, 2009, 8:51 AM

Is Tim Tebow the early Heisman favorite?

With the first preseason poll of the college football season coming out last week, we decided there is no better time to ask SportsNation to rank its preseason Heisman favorites.

The top contenders have to be the ''Big Three,'' the quarterback trio of Florida's Tim Tebow (the 2007 Heisman winner), Oklahoma's Sam Bradford (the 2008 winner) and Texas' Colt McCoy. Throw into the mix a talented wide receiver like Oklahoma State's Dez Bryant and an explosive running back like Cal's Jahvid Best and the 2009 Heisman race is sure to be an exciting one.
