Oklahoma State Wide Receiver Justin Blackmon and quarterback Brandon Weeden will Remain at Oklahoma State for their senior season.

’s gunslinger Andy Dalton played very well, but radio and television pundits are tabbing Dalton as a later pick. Washington’s Jake Locker seems to have passed his time in the spotlight, but has shown moments of brilliance throughout his career with the Huskies.

The Crimson Tide’s Mark Ingram was the 2009 Heisman winner. Could he get the call?

What about Stanford’s beast Owen Marecic? This guy started as Tight End and Linebacker. The first ’60 minute man’ in college football since Deion Sanders. Marecic was awarded the Paul Hornung Award, given to college football’s most versatile player.
