College Football's 2013 Postseason All-Freshman Team

College football’s regular season is officially in the books. After Saturday’s Army-Navy game, only 35 bowl matchups stand in the way of a long offseason.

With the completion of the regular season, it’s time to take a look at some of the top players in college football. Last week, Athlon Sports awarded its all-conference and All-America honors for 2013. And this week, it’s a look at the top freshmen in college football.

Each season, a handful of freshmen make an impact on the national stage. Last year, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel led the Aggies to an 11-2 record in the Aggies’ debut season in the SEC. In 2013, Jameis Winston guided Florida State to a perfect 13-0 mark and an appearance in the national championship.

Putting together an all-freshman task is no easy assignment. Talent and recruiting ranks don’t always equal success as a freshman. With that in mind, our task of picking players for the three teams was split based on production and talent. Players like Wisconsin running back Corey Clement and Pittsburgh’s James Conner are future standouts, but we awarded the production from two non-BCS players. However, players like Ole Miss’ Robert Nkemdiche – 2013’s No. 1 recruit – didn’t necessarily have the biggest stats but clearly made an impact beyond the box score.
