Site Owner Todd Helmick maintains an Official Heisman Vote and is one of only 870 media members across the nation to obtain such an honor. His Heisman Invitation List is updated starting in mid-September.

March 2006

1. Brady Quinn, Sr. - Notre Dame
- Should have been invited in 2005. Is Weis really a genius or is Quinn that good?
2. Adrian Peterson, Jr. - Oklahoma
- Still needs more support from the QB and OL. As a junior now, he is the pride of Norman.
3. Troy Smith, Sr. - Ohio State
- The passing numbers are not good enough, but his rushing numbers and leadership may be.
4. Drew Stanton, Sr. - Michigan State
- Talk about a late season drop-off in 2005, a 5-6 team record just won't do. But he’s got talent.
5. Brian Brohm, Jr. - Louisville
- Will a season ending knee injury slow him down? Now is the time for Brohm to be where expected.
6. Marshawn Lynch, Jr. - California
- Coach Tedford loves to produce quality running backs. If healthy, Lynch will continue the tradition.
7. Michael Bush, Sr. - Louisville
- A big, bruising back. He must carry Louisville to a Big East title first.
8. Kenny Irons, Sr. - Auburn
- On Williams, on Brown, on Irons. The Tigers love to run and Irons should top his 2005 production.
9. Jeff Samardzija, Sr. - Notre Dame
- If Quinn is near the top, who is catching all the passes? If a WR can win the Heisman, this is our guy.
10. Dwayne Jarrett, Jr. - Southern California
- A long shot as a receiver, but he can take over any game versus any defender.
11. Ted Ginn, Jr. - Ohio State
- With Holmes off to the NFL, Ginn takes over. He does return kicks and punts. Can he finally play CB?

12. Garrett Wolfe, Sr. - Northern Illinois
- This kid is a small pack of dynamite. The MAC always has a few and Wolfe is on the short list.
13. Chris Leak, Sr. - Florida
- A second year in the Meyer system should ease decision-making issues.
14. Drew Tate, Sr. - Iowa
- A front-runner last preseason with a disappointing campaign. Never count out a Kirk Ferentz senior QB.
15. Calvin Johnson, Jr. - Georgia Tech
- Always mentioned as the nation's most athletic WR. Can Reggie Ball get him enough touches?
