5. 1982 RB Herschel Walker
Just edging out Bo Jackson, and coming in at 5 on this list is Herschel Walker.
Walker was great for Georgia immediately as he ran for 1,616 yards and 15 touchdowns in his freshman season.
The 1980 Bulldogs went undefeated and won the National Championship but he would finish third in the Heisman voting that year behind George Rogers and Hugh Green.
In his sophomore season he rushed for 1,812 yards and 18 touchdowns but finished second to USC’s Marcus Allen.
Either season would’ve been good enough to win the Heisman most years, but Walker ran into some great players.
In his junior year, Walker was the man and had another elite year.
He ran for 1,855 yards and scored 18 total touchdowns while leading the Bulldogs to the Sugar Bowl against Penn State.
And despite the loss to the Nittany Lions, Walker still had 100 yards on the ground and a rushing touchdown.
He was an all-world athlete and compiled a staggering 33-3 record at Georgia. He was truly a generational athlete and was a sight to see for Georgia.
Walker was also an elite track star at Georgia which is demonstrated by the picture above.
