If not Palmer then I would guess Vinny T.
Plunkett, Staubach, Tebow and Vinny Testaverde are the four.
I think this is part reflects the different demands of college and pro football, and in part the results of some poor Heisman voting. As an example of the former, while Tebow (who did QB one playoff game victory) certainly looks as if he will never be a first rate NFL quarterback, he was a very effective college QB and probably deserved his Heisman. As an example of the latter, Joe Namath probably deserved the Heisman in 1964 but voters deemed the best college player in the land to be fellow senior QB John Huarte of Notre Dame.
