ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. Predicts USC's Caleb Williams to Win 2nd Heisman Award

ESPN Analyst Mel Kiper Jr. is not overthinking his Heisman prediction.

Kiper picked USC quarterback Caleb Williams to take home his second consecutive Heisman Trophy, stating that he should have a good chance to replicate his numbers from the 2022 season.

"I guess I'll be the boring one and pick the guy who just won it," Kiper wrote. "But how can you not? He's going to put up incredible numbers in Lincoln Riley's offense ... again."

Williams numbers in 2022 were sensational. He threw for 4,537 yards and had 42 touchdowns to just five interceptions.
