With the offseason fully in swing we've got our first Heisman odds of the preseason, via Bovada. Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott, the Offensive MVP of January's national title game, is the favorite after ending his sophomore season with three consecutive 200-yard games.

A pair of SEC players follow Elliott, as 2014 contender Dak Prescott and former five-star prospect Leonard Fournette are tied for second. Four of the top 10 players come from SEC schools, while the first 29 (of 31 players listed) are either quarterbacks or running backs. The other two? Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell and Arizona linebacker Scooby Wright III, each coming in at 66/1.

Elliott isn't the only Buckeyes player to make the list -- just like there's a logjam on the depth chart for Ohio State at quarterback, there's a logjam on the Heisman odds of Ohio State quarterbacks. Cardale Jones, J.T. Barrett and Braxton Miller come in at No. 10, No. 11 and No. 12 respectively. Here is the full list:
