Texian's right here.
Normally, when a QB goes #1 overall, they've been a finalist for the Heisman at least once and almost always, the year they're coming out.
Alex Smith was, Sam Bradford was, Cam Newton was, Luck was, Peyton was. Eli Manning was. David Carr was 5th in the voting, iirc.
Jamarcus Russell was not a finalist.
So, most of the time, if a QB goes 1-1, they're a Heisman Finalist. Not always, but normally.
