One player doesn't make a team in most sports, especially in college football.
But that doesn't mean being able to identify each team's best player isn't important. Not to mention, it's a fun exercise.
There's more than six months until the first games of the 2014 season, although spring practices have already started and will provide schools with their first batch of answers as far as whom they can count on in the fall.
Most teams are replacing their best player from 2013—a guy who either graduated or is in the process of trying to get drafted by the NFL. A select few were fortunate enough to have their best be someone who's coming back.
Either way, here's our list of the best returning player for each and every FBS football team heading into the 2014 campaign.
Note: A player's year is based on what class he'll be in for the 2014 season.
