For a team picked dead last in the SEC West and only expected to finish 13th overall in the SEC, it's very surprising to see that so many Razorback players are on the radar for these national awards watches. Now making a watch list isn't anything fantastic, and many Razorback players have been on these lists and not even made it to the final lists late in the season, but it's nice to be noticed and it's good recognition for these players.
We already have articles about Alex Collins and Jonathan Williams recognition as being watched for the Maxwell Award and the Doak Walker Award, but did you know they also made Chris Huston's list at Heisman Pundit.com of 25 players that he is tabbing as players to watch for the Heisman Trophy.
Among other's being watched, we also have Defensive End Trey Flowers on the lists for the Bednarik Award, the Nagurski Trophy, and the the Lombardi, Tight End Hunter Henry on the list for the Mackey Award, Braylon Mitchell on the Butkus Watch list for best Linebacker, and Punter Sam Irwin-Hill on the Ray Guy Watch list.
While Collins, Williams, and Flowers have each made three lists, the other watch list guys have quietly impressed during last season's 3-9 debacle. Which one of these Hogs will most likely win a post season award?
Is it actually one of these 6 guys? Will it be another Razorback? Will it be Bret Bielema for Coach of the Year?
