Loucheiz Purifoy, Florida
Purifoy is one of the most underrated cornerbacks in the country, and he will have ample opportunity to shine in 2013.
The Gators' 2013 schedule is rough, as usual, and they will have a tough time getting to the conference championship game. Just from the SEC, Florida faces LSU, Arkansas, Georgia and South Carolina.
Purifoy will be tested, and he will pass the exams with flying colors. Regardless of what Florida does, Purifoy will be on the All-American team.
Ricardo Allen, Purdue
Ricardo Allen will help the Purdue Boilermakers overcome the loss of two talented quarterbacks. Naturally, he won't be doing this on offense, but he will be taking the enemy's opportunities away via tackles, sacks and interceptions.
Allen will step up in a big way in 2013, and Purdue will live or die by his performances each week. Of his 45 tackles in 2012, 42 were solo. He is a superstar when he's left on an island.
Purdue will have to stop relying on him if it wants to contend for the Big Ten's Rose Bowl berth, but he will continue to be a rock for the Boilermakers as long as he's there. Team success has little to do with the All-American selection process. Allen will prove that in 2013.
