He's the most NFL ready RB in country 3 Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin Idle Indiana Spent the past week getting some serioius face time on various sports talk shows because he has made Wisconsin national title worthy 4 Landry Jones, QB, Oklahoma 31-50, 367 yards, 3 TD in 55-10 win over 11 Texas at Kansas Breakout game on national TV against ranked team (if you consider Texas worthy of being ranked). He's salivating with the Jayhawks up next. 5 Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor 22-30, 212 yards, TD, 24 rush, 107 rush yards, rush TD in 49-26 win over Iowa State At 21 Texas A&M Iowa State dared him to show his running abilities and he made them pay. He won't win the award, but he should be the second QB taken in 2012 Draft. 6 Brandon Weeden, QB, Oklahoma State 24-28, 288 yards, 5 TD in 70-28 win over Kansas At 22 Texas Only played one half and still had those numbers! Did you know he was a 2nd round pick of the NY Yankees in '02, and turns 28 years old this week? 7 Kellen Moore, QB, Boise State 23-31, 254 yards, 3 TD in 57-7 win at Fresno State At Colorado State I had him tied with Luck two weeks ago, but I just don't see him winning it because of how weak the Broncos' schedule is. It's going to take a miracle. 8 Denard Robinson, QB, Michigan 17-26, 337 yards, 2 TD, 3 INT, 25 rush, 117 yards, 2 TD in 42-24 win at Northwestern At 23 Michigan State Over his last five games, he's amassed 1,706 yards and 18 TD but with 9 INT. Check back next week after he plays at the rival Spartans. 9 LaMichael James, RB, Oregon 30 rush, 239 yards, TD in 43-15 win over Cal 18 Arizona State His third straight 200 yard game, but did you see his gruesome elbow injury? Let's hope he is ready to play in the Ducks' showdown with the Sun Devils. 10 Case Keenum, QB, Houston 30-37, 304 yards, 3 TD in 56-3 win over East Carolina Idle, then Marshall The 6th-year senior moved into 2nd place on the NCAA all-time passing yards list, and is third on the all-time touchdown passes list. The Cougars are also ranked.
