2013 Preseason Mountain West Offensive Player of the Year

QB Derek Carr, Sr. Fresno State

The hope was that he'd take his game to another level after throwing for 3,515 yards and 26 scores with nine picks in 2011, and he did with a terrific campaign hitting a whopping 67% of his passes for 4,104 yards and 37 scores with seven picks. With the loaded receiving corps he’ll get to work with, his NFL stock might go through the roof after throwing for more than 4,000 yards and showing a strong command of the attack.

2013 Preseason Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year
 
DE Demarcus Lawrence, Jr. Boise State

Talk about paying off right away, the JUCO transfer came up with nine tackles and two good pressures on the quarterback in the season-opening loss to Michigan State, and he followed it up with a dominant seven tackle, 2.5 sack day against Miami University. He owned Fresno State in the key win, and he was steady throughout the rest of the season cranking up at least one sack over a four game stretch. He’s the team’s most disruptive force, but now he’ll be keyed on even more.
