Will quarterbacks re-emerge in the Heisman, draft picture?
Quarterbacks have won the Heisman Trophy five straight seasons and have been selected first in the NFL Draft five of the last seven years.
Those trends might be changing this year.
The quarterback position in college football lost plenty of star power with the early departures of Heisman Trophy winners Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, who were taken with the first two picks in the most recent draft.
Now that Mariota and Winston have moved on to the NFL, running backs such as LSU's Leonard Fournette and Georgia's Nick Chubb have grabbed much of the attention n the first month of the college football season. The lack of prime quarterback prospects in the college game also could have an impact on next year's draft.
