Wisconsin quarterback Graham Mertz was named as a top breakout candidate by Treash after his explosive five-touchdown performance against the Illinois Fighting Illini in the 2020 season opener. Mertz was not the lone representative of the Big Ten, as Maryland QB Taulia Tagovailoa was also listed by Treash.

If being included by PFF is not enough of an indication of expectations for Graham Mertz entering his second year as a starter, he has already been named to the watch lists for both the Davey O’Brien and Manning awards.
