Two of last year’s three finalists — Baker Mayfield (winner) and Lamar Jackson (third place) — are now in the NFL, leaving Stanford’s Bryce Love as the lone returning finalist.

Last year, Mayfield became the first player since Florida quarterback Danny Wuerffel in 1996 to win the Heisman after finishing as a finalist the year before.
