    It might be Bo Levi Mitchell from the 2011-2012 title game all over again.

    Flacco has the best overall stats of those listed in the poll.

    To me, the knock on Maier is that most of his stats are down from last year. Davis's success has been thanks to an improved running game & a vastly improved defense.

    I've never been a big fan of individual awards in college football. It has become a, who has the best stats competition. If it was really for the best player we would be asking...Who has the best chance of playing on Sunday's.

    semobison- that philosophy didn't work for Doss last year. He led all of D1 (FBS asnd FCS) in receptions and yardage through the regular season.

    I still believe that Devlin Hodges is a serious threat to win this award.

    Some people think that who is playing in the NFL should not be taken into account but the best players make it to the NFL so shouldn't those who produce AND are going to play in the NFL be considered among them?

    When it comes to my list for the Payton here are the players with the best shot at the NFL:

    WR Juston Chrisian, Marist, Sr.- 39 catches, 972 yards, 24.9ypc, 12 TD, 108ypg in 9 games.
    QB Taryn Christion, South Dakota State, Sr.- 138-225, 2036 yards, 23 TD, 6 INT, 61.3%, 254.5ypg, 165.7 pass eff, 43 carries, 159 yards, 4 TD in 8 games.
    RB Ra’Quanne Dickens, Incarnate Word, Sr.- 128 carries, 841 yards, 6.6ypc, 11 TD, 93.4ypg, 10 catches, 88 yards in 9 games.
    LT Drew Forbes, Southeast Missouri State, Sr.- 3-year starter, 2017 2nd team All-OVC, likely 2018 1st team All-OVC, potential top 4 round pick in NFL Draft.
    WR Alexander Hollins, Eastern Illinois, Sr.- 70 catches, 899 yards, 12.8ypc, 13 TD, 99.9ypg in 9 games.
    WR Jesper Horsted, Princeton, Sr.- 59 catches, 817 yards, 13.8ypc, 9 TD, 102.1ypg in 8 games.
    TE Donald Parham, Stetson, Sr.- 64 catches, 951 yards, 14.9ypc, 9 TD, 135.9ypg in 7 games.
    WR Josh Pearson, Jacksonville State, Jr.- 46 catches, 769 yards, 16.7ypc, 15 TD, 85.4ypg in 9 games.
    FB Joe Protheroe, Cal Poly, Sr.- 288 carries, 1367 yards, 4.7ypc, 12 TD, 151.9ypg, 2 catches, 4 yards in 9 games.
    RB James Robinson, Illinois State, Jr.- 162 carries, 961 yards, 5.9ypc, 10 TD, 106.8ypg, 19 catches, 168 yards, 1 TD in 9 games.
    QB Easton Stick, North Dakota State, Sr.- 98-171, 1554 yards, 14 TD, 2 INT, 57.3%, 172.7ypg, 158.3 pass eff, 69 carries, 388 yards, 5.6ypc, 10 TD in 9 games.

    In fact, the best one is likely Drew Forbes but he won't make official lists because he is an OL. Linemen get screwed when it comes to the Payton. There aren't consistent grading scales by coaches, knockdowns, and sacks allowed numbers are not released and media doesn't truly know what that means. There have been several guys who should have finished top 5 for it but never will but the media doesn't have access to stats and don't truly know how to gauge them for linemen.
