Herschel Walker was nearly unstoppable when he was running for Georgia in the early 1980s. The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner is undoubtedly an all-time great.
According to this ESPN weekly coaches poll, he might even be the best.
97 of the 128 FBS coaches participated in the poll that named Walker the top college football player ever. He edged out four other Heisman-winning running backs for the top spot.
Two other former SEC players were named on the list.
Former Auburn great Bo Jackson was voted fourth. Former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow ranked sixth, the highest non-running back on the list.
Jackson (1985) and Tebow (2007) were also both Heisman Trophy winners.
