With Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o's chance having passed, how much longer will it be before another defensive candidate threatens to win the Heisman? Well, there might be a good chance a purely defensive player finally wins the Heisman next year. South Carolina sophomore defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was a dominant force this year, and because of the NFL's very unfair draft eligibility rule, he will be back for another season. He will have a lot of things going for him. Clowney plays a position which has a statistic (sacks) that is easy for voters to see and process. ... It will take a truly great season for a defensive player to win the Heisman. But, Clowney might just be the guy to do it.
