FCS Awards candidates from outside the box

(STATS) - Major awards tend to go to big stars in prominent positions, and in that regard, the top honors in the FCS are like most others.

Steve McNair, Brian Westbrook and Tony Romo are among the offensive standouts who have hoisted the Walter Payton Award since its inception in 1987, and Dexter Coakley and Jared Allen are among the big-play defenders who have carried off the Buck Buchanan Award since it came on the scene in 1995.

The Payton used to feature running backs and now it's dominated by quarterbacks - 13 of the past 14 winners were signal callers - while the past 15 Buchanan winners have been defensive ends or linebackers. An offensive lineman has never won the Payton and there's been only two at wide receiver, while the Buchanan has only had one winner at both defensive back (a cornerback) and defensive tackle.
