FBS MVP Candidates-All Purpose Athletes

Here is a new category that will include players that often don't fit into one box...

Denard Robinson, Michigan
He's fun to watch, and he has won some games for the Wolverines, and you cannot doubt the talent, but he's not a prototype QB. It's like the Wolverines run the Wildcat formation on every play. Robinson got hurt last week.

Adam Robinson, Iowa
Robinson is a multi threat back that's very adept at catching the football out of the backfield. While not amongst the leaders in pure rushing yardage alone, his All Purpose status is alive and well.

Derrick Locke, Kentucky
Locke is as skilled as any player in the country, and is dangerous in the open field, whether it be as a back or as a receiver. He averages just a shade over 133 yards per game.

Shane Vereen, California
Vereen has scored 11 times this season, and you cannot count him out on passing downs. Youhave to cover him, and many teams don't. Huge mistake.

Taylor Martinez, Nebraska
Just because he doesn't pass much, does not mean that he cannot. He just doesn't get that call often because of his rushing skills. Martinez was a 3000 yard passer in high school. Think about that if you want to be scared come Halloween.

Honorable Mention
Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina
Jacquizz Rodgers, Oregon State
Mikel Leshoure, Illinois
Rodney Stewart, Colorado
Ray Graham, Pittsburgh
