2013 CFN Preseason Ind. Off. Player of the Year - OT Zack Martin, Sr. Notre Dame

He's not massive at 6-4 and 304 pounds, and he's not going to be a left tackle at the next level, but he could get a long look at right tackle and will likely end up as an athletic guard. For now, he'll be an anchor for a good-looking line protecting Tommy Rees and being one of the main men the ground game works behind. At the college level, he's an elite pass protector and should be on everyone's All-America short list.

2013 CFN Preseason Ind. Def. Player of the Year - DE Stephon Tuitt, Jr. Notre Dame

Tuitt has it all with size, pass rushing ability and toughness against the run, and it showed with a brilliant 2012 season. Considered a possible top ten overall draft pick if he chooses to come out early, he's has dream NFL tools in any system as a 3-4 end or a 4-3 tackle. A superstar recruit a few years ago, he's living up to his billing.
