Pulling back the curtain on the vote
What some of our analysts are saying about McCaffrey
"You need a dominant day of workhorse rushing yardage, a receiver out of the backfield to torment linebackers or a kick returner? I've got a guy. McCaffrey is the do-it-all heart and soul of the Stanford offense and might be the best college player in the game." -- Lance Zierlein
"Dynamic playmaker capable of scoring from anywhere on the field as a runner, receiver or returner." -- Bucky Brooks
"McCaffrey is a big play waiting to happen and he's the most versatile player in college football." -- Daniel Jeremiah
"It would be too much to expect a better season than the record-breaking one McCaffrey had a year ago, but coach David Shaw will feed him as many touches as possible once again." -- Chase Goodbread
"He could (should?) have won the Heisman Trophy after breaking Barry Sanders' single-season all-purpose yardage mark. Much like Sanders, McCaffrey's combination of toughness and agility makes you hold your breath every time he gets the ball." -- Chad Reuter
"Can literally do it all as a RB/KR ... would not doubt he could star at just about any 'skill' position on the field." -- Charles Davis
