College football fans know about Florida State’s Jameis Winston, Oregon’s Marcus Mariota, Alabama’s T.J. Yeldon and Ohio State’s Braxton Miller, but there’s a new crop of superstars waiting to emerge. Every college football season always brings new household names, and the countdown has officially started for 2014.

With fall practice underway, freshmen are on campus and ready to make an impact on the upcoming season. The recruiting hype and star rankings surrounding these players will continue for the next few years, but fall practice is the first chance for most freshmen to make a significant impact.

Every season, freshmen make an impact for some of the top teams in the nation. Last year, quarterback Jameis Winston guided Florida State to a national championship. What freshmen might make that type of impact in 2014?

Athlon has attempted to answer that question with a look at the top three all-freshmen teams for 2014. True and redshirt freshmen were considered for this list, with the emphasis on playing time. Talent and recruiting rank does play a part in compiling an All-Freshman team. However, a major factor in placement was determined by how much the players would see the field. Players from the five power conferences, Notre Dame and BYU were considered for this all-freshman team.
