Last week we gave you our thoughts on which Pac-12 player we thought could win the Heisman Trophy.

Kevin Gemmell went with preseason favorite Matt Barkley, who became the instant front-runner when he decided to return to USC for another season.

Ted Miller thinks the do-it-all, explosive De'Anthony Thomas at Oregon is the guy to beat. He should put up big total numbers, when you account for how he's used in the run, pass and special-teams games.

Are we off? Is there someone else we should be considering?

How about Washington quarterback Keith Price? He spent all of last season perfecting his game in the pocket. And now that he's fully healthy, his running game makes him that much more dynamic.

Could it be four straight years that a Stanford player is in the mix (or finishes second) in the Heisman voting? Stepfan Taylor has quietly been one of the best running backs in the conference the past two years.

What about Utah's John White IV? Only the NFL-bound LaMichael James rushed for more yards in the conference last year than White -- who carried the ball more than any other back in the league.

Which Pac-12 player has the best shot at the stiff-arm?
