The winner of the Trofeo Heisman It will be known this Tuesday, and it will not only be strange that its delivery is made a month later than usual, in a season in which almost nothing has gone as expected, because an unexpected factor will be added to its atypical date when entering as black hair to contest the receiver DeVonta Smith.
Most fans and experts have Clemson’s quarterback, Trevor Lawrence, as the favorite to be chosen as the global pick number 1 of the next Draft for the Jaguars, but this time it does not seem so easy to win the award for the best player of the schoolboy this year.
Although it led to Clemson to a 10-2 record and a place in the Semifinals of the Playoffs of college football (and while he is one of four finalists announced) and despite the fact that quarterbacks have won in nine of the last 10 years, Lawrence is not expected to win. In the casinos they place him as a 7 to 1 loser.
This is how DeVonta Smith of Alabama he’s a huge emerging favorite, which is notable for being a wide receiver. And it is that the Heisman has been almost exclusively awarded to quarterbacks, who have conquered it 17 times in the last 20 years, of which the other three years the award went to running backs.
The last receiver to win was Desmond Howard Michigan in 1991, while Notre Dame’s Tim Brown in 1987 and Nebraska’s Johnny Rodgers in 1972 are the only other wide receivers to win the award, which dates back to 1935. But Smith has caught 105 passes for 1,641 yards and 20 touchdowns. this season, so it could end that prolonged drought.
