2. Jameis Winston (2015)
Spearheading the renaissance of Florida State football (no pun intended) under Jimbo Fisher, for as much as teams gnashed their teeth at all of the off-the-field transgressions of Jameis Winston, that’s how much they loved what he showed as a football player. To a man, all you heard about Winston was his advanced ability to read defenses, scan the field, and deliver the football nearly anywhere on the field.
Winston also seemed to bring a swagger and bravado to which many of his teammates responded favorably. And with his 6’4 and 231lb size, teams were confident that he would be a nightmare to bring down by opposing defenders.
