Oregon's Marcus Mariota wins the 2014 Heisman Trophy.
We all knew that this would happen, as Mariota had a better season than anybody in college football and it wasn't really close. Mariota had 254 completions for 3783 yards and a 68.3 completion percentage, also throwing for 38 touchdowns and tossing just two picks. He also rushed for 669 yards on 117 attempts (5.7 YPC), which was good for 14 touchdowns. While we're praising Mariota, it's also worth mentioning that he caught a 26 yard pass for a touchdown. Mariota is a freak athlete with a great arm and very good decision skills, as he has generally been able to stay away from throwing interceptions in his college career. He is entering the NFL draft in 2015 and will likely be a top-10 pick. It will be interesting to see what teams think of him, as the era of mobile QB's seems to be coming to a close. Luckily, Mariota doesn't just rely on his running, as he is a very talented passer as well. He has ideal size for a quarterback, great intangibles, and a high football IQ. The future is bright for the Oregon quarterback in the NFL.
