The best college football players of 2013 are those NCAA Football stars who led their respective teams and the league during the 2013 college football season. While not all of these top 2013 college football players will get an invitation to New York City for the 2013 Heisman Trophy presentation, each have made an impact on the game with their stellar and often clutch play.
It should be no surprise that many of the top players of the 2013 college football season are quarterbacks. Between 2012 Heisman winner Johnny Manziel of the Texas A&M Aggies, Jameis Winston of the Florida State Seminoles, Bryce Petty of the Baylor Bears and Marcus Mariota of the Oregon Ducks, odds are that a skilled passer will once again take home the trophy as the top college football player in 2013. Don't forget about AJ McCarron of the Alabama Crimson Tide, who has quietly and consistently set his team up for their third-consecutive BCS National Championship.
But there are many other great players who are leading the league at their various other positions of note as well. Running backs like Bishop Sankey, Ka'Deem Carey, Melvin Gordon and Andre Williams, wide receivers such as Brandin Cooks and Mike Evans, or even defensive stars like Michael Sam, Aaron Donald, Vic Beasley and Anthony Barr should all get some love for their 2013 campaigns.Despite the strong performances from all of these players, just one will be remembered as the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner.
