Longshot Heisman candidates from the SEC

While the main contenders are more obvious, people are always looking to cash in more on more of a longshot pre-season Heisman Trophy contender. In this article, I share my thoughts on some of the best longshot Heisman odds players from the SEC

Justice Haynes (RB, Alabama)

This one may come as a surprise as the running back room in Tuscaloosa is loaded with talent. Haynes will undoubtedly be splitting carries early on with fellow returning Tide running backs Jamarion Miller and Richard Young. However, the flashes that Haynes showed during the Rose Bowl against the Michigan Wolverines to me were a serious tell of the individual talent Haynes possesses.

Haynes showed off his quick feet and rushed four times for 31 yards in the contest for an average of 7.8 yards per carry.

Haynes’ odds are so long that he is not even listed on the Heisman odds for FanDuel. And that makes him the perfect candidate to pay off your mortgage.
