27. Colt McCoy
McCoy is a straight-up winner. He started four seasons for the University of Texas and put up great numbers each year. As a freshman, he threw for 2,570 yards and 29 TDs. His sophomore year, he threw for 3,303 yards and 22 TDs. His junior year, he threw for 3,859 yards and 34 TDs. Finally, his senior year, he threw for 3,521 yards and 27 TDs. His junior year was his most successful season statistically. In addition to his throwing numbers, he also ran for 561 yards and 11 TDs.
Due to his impressive run with the Longhorns, he’d take home several awards. In 2008, he won the Walter Camp Award and Archie Griffen Award. In 2009, however, he took home the Danny O’Brien Award, Manning Award, Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, Walter Camp Award, and Maxwell Award. He’d even be named the Sporting News College Athlete of the Year. However, he’d fell short of the Heisman both years, finishing second in 2008 and third in 2009.
