Nebraska's Taylor Martinez on Davey O'Brien Watch List

This Taylor Martinez could win the Davey O'Brien Award in 2011. That one we see where he's wincing and limping - that guy won't.

Hey, there's only 38 guys on the Davey O'Brien Watch list. That's at least fewer than the number of centers up for the Rimington Award. 

And one of them is Taylor Martinez, although that really shouldn't be a shock to anyone given that Martinez was one of seven returning semifinalists (might I remind you - as a first-year starter) in 2010. 

Out of the Big Ten you have Martinez, Kirk Cousins of Michigan State, Dan Persa of Northwestern, Denard Robinson of Michigan, Nathan Scheelhaase of Illinois and Russell Wilson, new dude at Wisconsin. 

Full list after the jump.
