Marshwan Gilyard Deserves a Look at for the Heisman

I know the Heisman traditionally goes to quarterbacks and running backs, however, Marshwan Gilyard deserves to be looked at by the committee for the highest honor in college football. Look at the guys numbers through his first four games this year.

The numbers don't lie and they've came against some decent teams.

32 catches for 442 yards and 6 TD's. He also has a rushing touchdown and is, in my opinion, the best return man in college football.

At this pace, he's projected to have 96 catches, over 1,300 yards and 18 touchdowns! Is that Heisman worthy?

Sadly enough it probably isn't considering a guy by the name of Michael Crabtree put up ridiculous numbers (134 catches, 1,962 yards, 22 touchdowns) in 2007 and didn't win! Granted he was a freshmen, but still.
