2014 SEC Heisman Trophy Candidates

Todd Gurley And Derrick Henry

Todd Gurley  

Todd Gurley and fellow running back Keith Marshall have become known as "Gurshell" — a combination that has almost equalled the likes of former Georgia great Herschel Walker. Instead, Gurley has taken the edge in becoming Georgia's standout back and Heisman front-runner. It should be fun early on when Georgia travels to South Carolina where Gurley will take on Gamecocks' leader Dylan Thompson.  

Derrick Henry  

Derrick Henry emerged on the national scene in Alabama's Sugar Bowl loss to Oklahoma.  

Henry rushed for 382 yards and scored three TDs on only 36 carries a season ago. You can expect Lane Kiffin to fully exercise all of Henry's abilities, and with the conference down in quarterbacks this year, running backs will have more of a chance for a Heisman run.
