CFB 24 8 Heisman Watch: Preseason 30102653 Preseason Heisman Watch Preseason+Heisman+Watch CFB

With the 2011 college football season kicking off this week, here's my initial list of 10 players to watch in the race for the Heisman Trophy (Not that this needs saying, but I'm happy to hear your thoughts about who you like or who I may have missed). — CHARLES DAVIS

CFB 24 8 Heisman Watch: Preseason 30102651 Denard Robinson, junior, QB, Michigan Denard+Robinson%2C+junior%2C+QB%2C+Michigan CFB

2010 stats: 2,570 yards passing, 18 TDs; 1,702 yards rushing, 11 TDs.

There was no more exciting or productive player in the country in September of last season. The change to more of a pro-style attack may limit his highlight reel.

CFB 24 8 Heisman Watch: Preseason 30102650 Robert Griffin III, junior, QB, Baylor Robert+Griffin+III%2C+junior%2C+QB%2C+Baylor CFB

2010 stats: 3,501 yards passing, 22 TDs; 635 yards rushing, 8 TDs.

If Baylor re-creates last season's 7-2 start, Griffin, who missed the 2009 season because of a knee injury, will be the main reason why.

CFB 24 8 Heisman Watch: Preseason 30102647 Vontaze Burfict, junior, LB, Arizona State Vontaze+Burfict%2C+junior%2C+LB%2C+Arizona+State CFB

2010 stats: 90 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss.

When he plays, there should be cartoon bubbles over each of his hits ... BAM! BIFF!! POW!!!

CFB 24 8 Heisman Watch: Preseason 30102649 Alshon Jeffery, junior, WR, South Carolina Alshon+Jeffery%2C+junior%2C+WR%2C+South+Carolina CFB

2010 stats: 88 catches, 1,517 yards, nine touchdowns.

In the mold of Justin Blackmon of Oklahoma State, Jeffery is big, rangy, fast with terrific hands and breaks down double coverage to produce.

Grant Halverson - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/08/23/082311-CFB-Heisman-Watch-Gallery7-JW_2011082314195595_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/08/23/082311-CFB-Heisman-Watch-Gallery7-JW_2011082314195595_107_80.JPG
CFB 24 8 Heisman Watch: Preseason 30102652 Landry Jones, junior, QB, Oklahoma Landry+Jones%2C+junior%2C+QB%2C+Oklahoma CFB

2010 stats: 4,718 yards passing, 38 touchdowns.

His progress has been fun to watch, and his accuracy leads OU to the end zone often, and quickly.

CFB 24 8 Heisman Watch: Preseason 30102638 Kellen Moore, senior, QB, Boise State Kellen+Moore%2C+senior%2C+QB%2C+Boise+State CFB

2010 stats: 3,845 yards passing, 35 touchdowns.

A winning machine (just two career losses) with the ability to solve and beat most defenses.

CFB 24 8 Heisman Watch: Preseason 30102640 Trent Richardson, junior, RB, Alabama Trent+Richardson%2C+junior%2C+RB%2C+Alabama CFB

2010 stats: 1,620 total yards, 10 touchdowns.

Now that Mark Ingram is with the New Orleans Saints, the 'Bama Trophy case has room for a second statue in three seasons.

CFB 24 8 Heisman Watch: Preseason 30102641 LaMichael James, junior, RB, Oregon LaMichael+James%2C+junior%2C+RB%2C+Oregon CFB

2010 stats: 1,939 total yards, 24 touchdowns.

A do-it-all sensation who hopes to lead the Ducks back to the BCS Championship Game.

Matthew Emmons - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/08/23/082311-CFB-Heisman-Watch-Gallery3-JW_2011082314174782_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/08/23/082311-CFB-Heisman-Watch-Gallery3-JW_2011082314174782_107_80.JPG
CFB 24 8 Heisman Watch: Preseason 30102639 Justin Blackmon, junior, WR, Oklahoma State Justin+Blackmon%2C+junior%2C+WR%2C+Oklahoma+State CFB

2010 stats: 1,859 total yards, 21 touchdowns.

If you don't believe Andrew Luck is the best, you'll likely believe this Cowboy tops them all.

Brendan Maloney - USA TODAY Sports http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/08/23/082311-CFB-Heisman-Watch-Gallery2-JW_2011082314174779_600_400.JPG http://static.foxsports.com/content/fscom/img/2011/08/23/082311-CFB-Heisman-Watch-Gallery2-JW_2011082314174779_107_80.JPG
CFB 24 8 Heisman Watch: Preseason 30102637 Andrew Luck, junior, QB, Stanford Andrew+Luck%2C+junior%2C+QB%2C+Stanford CFB

2010 stats: 3,338 yards passing, 32 touchdowns.

The best player in the country.
