CBSSports.com's Top 5 ACC candidates who could be in the Heisman conversation this season:
1. EJ Manuel, quarterback, Florida State
2. Logan Thomas, quarterback, Virginia Tech
3. Tajh BoydTajh Boyd
RS Jr. Quarterback
#10 6-1, 225
View Full Profile, quarterback, Clemson -- Boyd was first team all-conference in 2011. He can put up video game numbers in offensive coordinator Chad Morris' system. Boyd passed for 3,828 yards last year and has a lot of offensive weapons surrounding him. The offensive line is a question mark, but if the line comes together and Clemson performs well against a challenging early schedule, Boyd will receive plenty of national attention.
4. Sammy WatkinsSammy Watkins
So. Wide Receiver
#2 6-1, 205
Fort Myers, FL
View Full Profile, wide receiver, Clemson -- Watkins is the best player in the ACC. However, there are two things working against him when it comes to winning the Heisman in 2012. First, a wide receiver has not won the award since Desmond Howard in 1991. Second, he is suspended for the first two games of the season. Still, he has the talent to be in the conversation.
5. Mike Glennon, quarterback, NC State
