The Post’s Heisman picks

Joe Burrow, QB, LSU: The question isn’t who will win, but what percentage of the vote the LSU senior will receive. After a mediocre-at-best first season in the Bayou, Burrow had a memorable final year aided by new passing-game coordinator Joe Brady, leading the Tigers to an unbeaten season and top spot in the College Football Playoff. He led the country in touchdown passes (48), was second in yards (4,715) and completed an astounding 77.9 percent of his passes, an NCAA record. USC’s Reggie Bush set the record in 2005 for the highest percentage of voting points with 91.7 percent (though that award was later vacated due to Bush receiving impermissible benefits), a mark Burrow could surpass.

Joe Burrow, QB, LSU: Somehow, the graduate transfer who completed less than 58 percent of his passes last season will achieve both an all-time improbable and lopsided Heisman win. Burrow shattered the all-time NCAA completion percentage mark (77.9). He led the nation with 48 TD passes. He finished second with 4,715 yards. He gave LSU its first SEC title in eight years, leading it to the playoff as the top-ranked team. Most impressively, Burrow was at his best in five wins against top-10 teams, throwing for 15 TDs and getting intercepted just twice, while completing 78.6 percent of his passes and averaging over 365 yards passing. No player in the country was better. No player meant more to his team.
