5 Defensive Players Who Could Crash 2013 Heisman Trophy Ceremony

Manti Te'o crashed the Heisman party this season, making his way to the award ceremony as a finalist, a feat that doesn't happen often for defensive players.

But it took a perfect season from his team, punctuated by great plays, for him to earn a trip to New York.

The five players on this list have the potential to do the same.

While it's unlikely any of them will actually win the award, with a few breaks and a team that competes in the national spotlight for the majority of the season, a visit to New York for the Heisman ceremony is a very real possibility.

Of course, it would take a season similar to Te'o's 2012, where a consistently high level of play is highlighted by a "Heisman moment" or two, but each player on this list has the potential to earn a spot at the table usually reserved for offense.
