Voting closes Friday at 2 p.m. Pacific.
Bryan Schor – James Madison
The national-championship-winning quarterback makes the JMU offense go. A strong arm and the ability to escape pressure and make throws on the run gives defenses headaches. Now a senior, Schor continues to be a top quarterback in the FCS, completing nearly 70 percent of his passes for 2,512 yards, 23 touchdowns and 11 interceptions and is also tied for the team lead with six rushing touchdowns..
Andrew Vollert – Weber State
While the offense goes where quarterback Stefan Cantwell takes them, his 6-foot-5, 245-pound tight end is a premiere player in the FCS. Maybe overshadowed a bit by Dallas Goedert, Vollert is a legitimate NFL prospect and is ranked the No. 16 tight end in the 2018 draft by NFLDraftScout. He's recorded 56 catches for 726 yards and five touchdowns this season.
Dallas Goedert – South Dakota State
Speaking of tight ends, Goedert is the best one at his position in all of college football. That’s according to several NFL Draft experts throughout 2017. At 6-foot-5, 260 pounds with speed and great hands, Goedert’s career stats are 192 catches for 2,926 yards and 20 touchdowns. So far, no one in the FCS has been able to contain him.
Neil O'Connor – New Hampshire
A first team All-CAA selection this season, O'Connor is a standout receiver for the Wildcats. The numbers speak for themselves for the 5-foot-11, 190-pound junior: 93 catches, 1,358 yards and 10 touchdowns. He’s fourth in the FCS in receiving yards and seventh in catches per game at 7.2.
Jeremiah Briscoe – Sam Houston State
The subdivision’s No. 1 passer in yards (4,398) and touchdowns (41), Briscoe is a senior putting on a show for the NFL Scouts. NFLDraftScout has him the 11th best quarterback in the 2018 draft. He was named the Walter Payton Award winner last season and is a top-three finalist again this year.
Chandler Burks – Kennesaw State
As the Big South Offensive Player of the Year, Burks orchestrates KSU’s option offense to perfection. The Owls have become the best story in the playoffs as just a third-year program being in the quarterfinals. And good news for them, Burks is just a junior. This season, he's thrown for 1,187 yards and eight scores and has ran for 1,060 yards and 17 touchdowns.
Easton Stick – North Dakota State
Perhaps the best number to describe the Bison’s quarterback is 31-3 as a starter. And he’s got his senior season ahead of him in 2018. Besides wins, Stick is still a dynamic athlete at the quarterback position and no doubt the team’s most valuable player on the field. He's thrown for 1,992 yards with 20 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Stick also uses his legs and has ran for 547 yards and 10 scores.
Lennox McAfee – Wofford
The Terriers are such a balanced offense with their option attack. But McAfee is the home run threat when he gets a pitch and hits the corner on a defense. He’s only 5-foot-7 and 175 pounds, yet the junior uses that to his advantage. While the fullback in this offense, Andre Stoddard, punches it in the endzone for 14 touchdowns, McAfee is the speedster to set it up with 747 yards on the ground and six scores.
