HeismanPundit.com’s Chris Huston joined the show to handicap this year’s field.

Huston said that Johnny Manziel will win. “It’s pretty shocking,” Huston said. “This is a guy who was on nobody’s radar at the beginning of the year.”

Huston thinks that Manziel, Manti T’eo and Collin Klein will be invited to New York.

Huston noted that Manziel is about to turn 20 and actually Mark Ingram was younger.

Here’s Huston’s latest straw poll of voters:
