Recently that seems to be true. There was a time when it wasn't true though. Back when most of the winners were running backs, they tended to do pretty well in the NFL.

1976 Tony Dorsett Pittsburgh RB Sr.

1977 Earl Campbell Texas RB Sr.

1978 Billy Sims Oklahoma RB Jr.

1979 Charles White USC RB Sr.

1980 George Rogers South Carolina RB Sr.

1981 Marcus Allen USC RB Sr.

1982 Herschel Walker Georgia RB Jr.

1983 Mike Rozier Nebraska RB Sr.

1984 Doug Flutie Boston College QB Sr.

1985 Bo Jackson Auburn RB Sr.

1986 Vinny Testaverde Miami (Fla) QB Sr.

1987 Tim Brown Notre Dame WR Sr.

1988 Barry Sanders Oklahoma State RB

I would say these guys did ok.

Yeah.

But as for the last 20 years, Charles Woodson is the only guy that has made a meaningful impact in the NFL. Reggie Bush may be the 2nd, but the jury's still out.

Maybe Carson Palmer as well. We'll see.

Maybe we should back up a bit.

What part about "last 20 years" threw you off? And you should go let Jerry Rice know he won a Heisman. He'll be thrilled.

The one reason I think Bradford may not win it is because he can't circumcise young Filipino boys.

But you can't sit there and tell me that those players I mentioned didn't have an influence on football.

And you can't tell me they've won the Heisman within the last 20 years.
