Jameis Winston became "famous" during his freshman season. What will he do for an encore in 2014?

The college football world lost a tremendous amount of star power this offseason, with a record 98 underclassmen declaring for the 2014 NFL draft, including heralded headline-makers such as Johnny ManzielJadeveon Clowney, Teddy Bridgewater and Sammy Watkins.

While many of the top performers from the 2013 season may be moving on to the pros, there are still plenty of players left on the collegiate level who are worth getting excited about.

Florida State QB Jameis Winston, the reigning Heisman winner, will be college football’s new cover boy this offseason. However, there are plenty of other players who deserve their fair share of recognition as well.

That’s why I wanted to put together a preliminary preseason analysis of the top players to watch out for this fall.

There were many factors I considered when putting together these rankings. Physical ability, pro potential and past production were all factored into the equation, but ultimately, the main word and general idea I focused on when putting together the list was impact.

These are the players who I feel have what it takes to make the biggest individual impact at their respective positions this season. 

Here’s a look at the top 50 college football players for the 2014 season, as well as a breakdown of the top 25 players at every position.
