Maxwell, Bednarik watch lists announced

The Maxwell Football Club on Monday announced its watch lists for the 78th annual Maxwell Award and the 20th annual Chuck Bednarik Award.

Returning Maxwell Award semifinalists from 2013 include Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon, Oregon State QB Sean Mannion, Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, Baylor QB Bryce Petty and returning Maxwell Award finalist Florida State QB Jameis Winston. The Seminoles have placed three players on the list, as RB Karlos Williams and WR Rashad Greene join Winston. Three athletes also represent Baylor, Oregon, and USC, and Alabama leads the pack with four.

The Chuck Bednarik Award watch list features three of last season's semifinalists, Clemson DE Vic Beasley, Oregon CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu and USC DE Leonard Williams. Notably, Georgia landed three linebackers on the list, Leonard Floyd, Jordan Jenkins and Ramik Wilson. And despite Stanford losing four of its best defensive players to the NFL draft, the Cardinal still leads all teams with four players represented.

Semifinalists for the Maxwell and Bednarik awards will be announced Nov. 3; the three finalists for both awards will be unveiled Nov. 24. The winners will be announced as part of the Home Depot College Football Awards Show held on Dec. 11.
