The 34-man Davey O'Brien Award's preseason watch list was released on Wednesday, and Michigan senior quarterback Denard Robinson was, as expected, once again among the names listed.
The six-foot Robinson, already added to the Maxwell watch list earlier in the month, is one of seven Michigan players who have been lauded with preseason accolades. One of five Big Ten passers on the list, the dual threat is already in the top 10 of Michigan's record books for completions, attempts, yards and touchdowns as a passer, and in yards, touchdowns and 100-yard games as a runner.
Broken down to 16 semifinalists on October 22, a cut which Robinson made just last year, the O'Brien will be doled out on December 6 at the annual College Football Awards Show. Seven of last year's 16 semifinalists are still in the field, including Southern California's Matt Barkley, Oklahoma's Landry Jones and Arkansas' Tyler Wilson.
