Rank the Heisman Trophy winners of the SEC
Included are those teams who are now members of the SEC that weren't when they won the trophy:

1942 - Frank Sinkwich, RB, Georgia
1957 - John David Crow, RB, Texas A&M
1959 - Billy Cannon, RB, LSU
1966 - Steve Spurrier, QB, Florida
1971 - Pat Sullivan, QB, Auburn
1980 - George Rogers, RB, South Carolina
1982 - Herschel Walker, RB, Georgia
1985 - Bo Jackson, RB, Auburn
1996 - Danny Wuerffel, QB, Florida
2007 - Tim Tebow, QB, Florida
2009 - Mark Ingram, RB, Alabama
2010 - Cam Newton, QB, Auburn
2012 - Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
2015 - Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama
2019 - Joe Burrow, QB, LSU
2020 - DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama

One thing that sticks out to me is the following - from 1935-2000, the SEC had nine Heisman Trophy winners total (and that's only if you count the two won by Texas A&M and South Carolina before they joined the conference). The SEC has had seven Heisman winners since the turn of the century.

Pat Sullivan, Gino Torretta, Jason White have a Heisman. Let that permeate for just a moment.

Difficult to rank. No Bama player will be at the top because they normally don’t carry a team like a Cam Newton does.

Bo/Herschel were before my time

He had absolutely no business winning it over Larry Fitzgerald. There wasn't even really an argument for it aside from "yeah he's not nearly as good, but he plays QB for a better team".

Cam Newton is the best player to ever play college ball in the SEC

Cam Newton was a QB which allows for more dominance. He did it both running and throwing and carried a dog shite team to a championship.
