    Where its at though bra-- but my pick would definitely be Robinson so far, mainly because of his 14-1 TD-INT ratio.

    Breaking down James White

    Wisconsin may have had the Heisman trophy winner last year as Montee Ball had a monster year, but Ball is in the NFL now, and the Badgers have relied heavily on James White to carry the load this year. After splitting time with Ball last year and splitting with Ball and John Clay as a true freshman in 2010, White is the guy this year and has proven his playmaking ability.

    As a true freshman, White ran the ball 156 times for 1052 yards and 14 touchdowns. A season most people would be thrilled for! But it wasnt enough as last year he stepped it up with 181 carries for 1232 yards and 15 touchdowns. Now that this is his team, he looks the part. Already with 1000 yards on 166 carries, he is on pace for 1750 yards and 23 touchdowns this year. Numbers that will put him in the heisman race if he can keep things up.

    The career numbers rank near the top of the Badger record books and White still may have a year of eligibility left if he returns next year. Already with 3284 yards in his career and 42 TDs, it is exciting to watch every time White takes a handoff. Already this year, he has a career high 11 rushes broken for 20+ yards.

    White is not the tallest RB, but he has quality size on that frame, excellent feet, and runs with power between the tackles. He has a plus pair of hands, he makes adjustments to passes, and will be a weapon in the passing game. White has some wiggle, but is more of a player that looks to run through defenders than around them. He is a fundamentally sound blocker that excels in pass protection. In open field, White will outrun most defenders and has a tremendous burst. Very tough to bring down.

    Let it be noted Ball is on the Rams practice squad cleaning Bradford's jock straps.
