Oddsmakers have tabbed Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston as the favorite for the Heisman Trophy in 2014.

Winston's encore to his Heisman winning rookie season will be one of the biggest national stories week-in and week-out. Not only did Winston become the second-straight and second-ever freshman to win the award, but he added an ACC Player of the Year honor and led Florida State to an undefeated season and first national title in over a decade.

If Winston continues to perform at a high level and the Seminoles continue their winning ways, Jameis will be in the mix for the award again in 2014. Where he falls in that race will depend on the performance of other frontrunners along with the seemingly-annual dark horse(s) -- Manziel in 2012, Winston, Andre Williams and Tre Mason in 2013 -- that enter the race once the season actually starts.
