2024 Heisman hopefuls: Quarterbacks lead the way

It’s no surprise to see the early list of 2024 Heisman Trophy odds headlined by Quarterbacks. After all, eight of the last ten Heisman winners have been QBs with Alabama’s Devonta Smith (2020) and Derrick Henry (2015) being the only exceptions.

As the sport continues to see an uptick in offensive output year over year, the biggest winners (besides College Football fans) are Quarterbacks. The pace of play continues to quicken with top teams in the country now averaging upwards of 40 points per game, and star QBs are producing mind-boggling stat sheets as a result.

Carson Beck (Quarterback, Georgia): The early favorite for the 2024 Heisman Trophy is Georgia Quarterback Carson Beck. After leading the Bulldogs to a 13-1 record in his first season as a starter putting up nearly 4,000 yards passing with 24 Touchdowns to just 6 Interceptions, Beck looks poised to take a major leap in 2024.

Early NFL Mock Drafts have Beck slated as the first-overall pick which would certainly imply an ultra-successful season for UGA’s Senior QB. With Georgia currently the betting favorite to win the SEC, there should be every opportunity for Carson Beck to have a successful Heisman campaign in the upcoming season.

Quinn Ewers (Quarterback, Texas): The Texas Longhorns’ signal-caller comes in with the second-best Heisman odds for 2024 as Quinn Ewers gets set to enter his third season as a starting Quarterback. Ewers was impressive last season putting up nearly 3,500 yards through the air with 22 Touchdowns to 6 Interceptions.

Texas lost major talent through the NFL Draft including its top Wide Receivers from last season, but gained re-enforcements through the transfer portal with speedster Isaiah Bond coming over from the University of Alabama. As Ewers aims to get Texas into the College Football Playoff he could be set for an extremely successful individual campaign as well.

Dillon Gabriel (Quarterback, Oregon): After transferring to the Oregon Ducks from Oklahoma, Dillon Gabriel comes in on the list with the third-best odds to win the 2024 Heisman. Gabriel is an extremely experienced player with nearly 15,000 pass yards and over 150 total Touchdowns so far in his College Football career (previously played at UCF and Oklahoma).

Now set to run the show for Dan Lanning’s offense in Eugene, Gabriel takes over a talented roster coming off a 12-win regular season capped off by a victory in the Fiesta Bowl.
