One of the questions posed by the new EA Sports game as a possible blog post was: Which former Heisman winner would you want on your team?

And thinking about last year's RU team, I had to consider what was Rutgers' biggest drawback last year? They had a great year, one that surpassed many expectations, but frustratingly (at least to me) the quarterback situation never truly worked it's way out. Gary Nova and Chas Dodd had their moments, but there wasn't enough consistency. So, if I were to think about it, I'd have to find a Heisman winning QB to fill the position.

But not just any Heisman Quarterback. Robert Griffin, for instance, wouldn't fit the RU offense to well. He won games as much with his feet as he did with his arm. A great college QB--as was Cam Newton--but I'm not sure they would have been used to their fullest potential under Greg Schiano's watch (I don't know enough about Kyle Flood and his staff to comment yet).

So... looking back... let's see.

My first instinct is to pick Carson Palmer. A pro-style quarterback. One who'd take advantage of both RU's growing running game and gamut of talented wide receivers. Palmer would be able to put the ball right where it needed to be caught and perhaps really would have helped Mark Harrison and Brandon Coleman to have the breakout years they were predicted to have. Solid years all around.

But let's face it, any of the former Heisman winners would have made Rutgers a better team. Players who put up those kinds of statistics and are first round (sometimes first overall picks) are something Rutgers has had only once in its recent history.

So, who would your choice be? Which former Heisman winner would you want on last year's squad?
