Winston was a runaway winner for the 2013 Heisman Trophy, leading the nation in yards per pass at 10.9 and throwing 38 touchdowns to 10 picks. He helped FSU to an undefeated season and a trip to the BCS national title game.

Running back: Andre Williams, Sr., Boston College
Williams had an exceptional season in Chestnut Hill, leading the nation in rushing with 2,102 yards and adding 17 touchdowns. He finished fourth in the Heisman race.

Running back: Ka'Deem Carey, Jr., Arizona
Carey put up a huge year in Tucson, rushing for 1,716 yards and 17 touchdowns. In the Wildcats' biggest win of the year, a 42-16 whipping of Oregon, the junior racked up 206 yards and four TDs.

Wide receiver: Brandin Cooks, Jr., Oregon State
Cooks led the nation in receiving with 1,670 yards and tied for second with 15 touchdowns, combining with Sean Mannion to form one of the nation's most dynamic receiever-QB duos.

Wide receiver: Mike Evans, So., Texas A&M
Evans mesmerized the country on Sept. 14 against Alabama, hauling in seven catches for 279 yards and a touchdown. At 6-foot-5 with impressive leaping ability, he was a nightmare matchup for almost any defensive back that had to line up against him.

Tight end: Jace Amaro, Jr., Texas Tech
Amaro caught 98 balls for 1,240 yards and seven touchdowns, a reliable source for freshman quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Davis Webb. He was a semifinalist for the Mackey Award, honoring the nation's best tight end.

Offensive tackle: Jake Matthews, Jr., Texas A&M
Matthews protected quarterback Johnny Manziel in College Station for the last two seasons and earned the Jacobs Blocking Trophy in 2013, awarded to the SEC's best offensive lineman. He's projected to be a high first-round pick in next spring's NFL draft.

Offensive tackle: Taylor Lewan, Sr., Michigan
Lewan anchored a young offensive line in Ann Arbor and solidified himself as a first-round NFL draft prospect. At 6-8 and more than 300 pounds, he has length and power but also the athleticism to move well in pass-protection.

Offensive guard: Cyril Richardson, Sr., Baylor
Richardson was a key cog in a Baylor offensive line that allowed the Bears to rush for 5.39 yards per attempt, 14th-best in the nation. He was a finalist for the Outland Trophy, given to college football's top interior lineman, and should serve some NFL team well in the future.

Center: Gabe Ikard, Sr., Oklahoma
Ikard has been a staple in Norman for a while now and helped block for running backs Brennan Clay and Damien Williams and running QB Blake Bell this season; the Sooners ranked 16th in the nation at 5.35 yards per rush. Ikard was a Rimington Trophy finalist, given to the country's best center, and will head to the NFL after OU plays Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.

Offensive guard: David Yankey, Sr., Stanford
Perhaps no team relies on the run more than Stanford, and Yankey was an important piece of that attack in 2013. Despite being listed as a senior by Stanford, Yankey has another year of eligibility remaining after playing only two games his freshman year due to injury, but he might head to the NFL after the Cardinal play Michigan State in the Rose Bowl.

Defensive end: Michael Sam, Sr., Missouri
Sam was a beast on the Mizzou defense in 2013, ranking ninth in the country with 10.5 sacks and 11th with 18 tackles for loss. He helped the Tigers win the SEC East and earn a trip to Atlanta for the conference championship game.

Defensive end: Jackson Jeffcoat, Sr., Texas
Part of Texas' turnaround was due to a defensive spark when Greg Robinson came aboard midseason, and a big part of that can be attributed to the play of Jeffcoat. He ranked third in the country with 12 sacks and was an all-out menace in pursuit.

Defensive line: Aaron Donald, Sr., Pittsburgh
Donald led the country in tackles for loss with 26.5 and also added 10 sacks. Pitt went only 6-6 on the season, but Donald was rewarded for his efforts by winning the Outland Trophy, given to the country's top interior lineman.
Howard Smith-USA TODAY SportsHoward Smith
Defensive line: Will Sutton, Sr., Arizona State
Sutton lacks the gaudy numbers of other defensive linemen -- four sacks, 11.5 tackles for loss -- but he was a disruptive force in Arizona State's interior and helped the Sun Devils reach the Pac-12 title game.

Linebacker: C.J. Mosley, Sr., Alabama
Mosley is putting the finishing touches on an outstanding career in Tuscaloosa. He was the leading tackler (102) on a defense that ranked 10th in the nation in yards per play (4.73) and is projected to be a top-10 pick in the upcoming NFL draft.
Kevin C. Cox
Linebacker: Anthony Barr, Sr., UCLA
Barr was a beast for UCLA, recording 10 sacks as one of the most dynamic edge rushers in the country. He's strong enough to fight big offensive linemen hand-to-hand and athletic enough to drop back in pass coverage. He has a shot to be selected within the first 10 picks of the NFL draft.
Linebacker: Trent Murphy, Sr., Stanford
Murphy epitomizes the style of football the Cardinal love to play: physical and mean. He led the nation with 14 sacks and is athletic enough to drop back and play the pass in addition to rushing the quarterback. He is a projected first-round pick in the NFL draft.

Cornerback: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Jr., Oregon
In addition to having one of college football's best names, Ekpre-Olomu was one of the nation's top corners in 2013. He's more physical than his 5-10, 190-pound frame would suggest and has an ability to blanket opposing receivers without drawing flags. A projected first-round pick, he likely has only one more game left in college.

Cornerback: Darqueze Dennard, Sr., Michigan State
Dennard was a standout on the defense that led Michigan State to a Big Ten title and Rose Bowl berth. He can play tight man-to-man coverage and also has the ability to come off the corner and get to the quarterback when a blitz is called. The NFL awaits after his work is done in Pasadena.

Safety: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Jr., Alabama
Clinton-Dix gives the Crimson Tide two defensive players on this year's All-America team. He has exceptional awareness in the middle of the field and reads the quarterback well. After the Sugar Bowl, Clinton-Dix will likely turn pro and give Alabama another first-round pick.

Returner: Ty Montgomery, Jr., Stanford
Montgomery led the nation in kickoff return average at 31.2 yards per return, also taking two kickoffs back for touchdowns. Not bad work in addition to his 937 yards and 10 TDs as a wide receiver.

All-purpose: Myles Jack, Fr., UCLA
Jack made noise in the second half of the season as a running back -- averaging 7.2 yards on 37 carries with seven TDs -- but his highest ceiling is at linebacker, where some NFL scouts believe he has more potential than teammate Anthony Barr (who will be a first-round pick this year). Luckily for the Bruins, they get Jack for two more seasons before he can turn pro.

Coach: Gus Malzahn, Auburn
A few coaches deserved this honor in 2013, but it was hard to go against Malzahn. In his first year at Auburn, he took the Tigers from 3-9 in 2012 to an SEC championship and berth in the national title game. Beating Florida State would turn this dream year into an all-timer at Auburn.
