Texas-Alabama NFL Draft Prospects

Texas vs. Alabama
BCS Championship, Jan. 7th
TV: ABC 8:00pm ET

The BCS Championship will be stock full of NFL Draft Prospects and the last regular college football game to see these guys in action. Some you will be able to catch in the Senior Bowl but that is just different.

The biggest game in College Football is also a huge game for Texas Quarterback Colt McCoy’s NFL Draft stock. It is hard to place McCoy right now. He is certainly one of the top Quarterbacks in the class but how will his game translate to the NFL? He has been projected from a first rounder to a sixth-seventh rounder. Considering how McCoy was owned by the Nebraska defense this game is a very important bounce back game, especially if he can do it against a legit defense in Alabama. Another prospect to watch on the Longhorn offense is Wide Receiver Jordan Shipley on the other end of throws from McCoy.

On defense for Texas there are two top prospects for their positions in Sergio Kindle (projected at OLB) and Safety Earl Thomas. Kindle will remind you of now Washington Redskin Brian Orakpo.

If it’s defense you want to watch though you will get a treat when Alabama’s is on the field. Linebacker Rolando McClain should be all over the field and should be one of the first Linebackers drafted in April. In front of him at Defensive Tackle, Terrence Cody is a monster in the middle. ¬†Giving McCoy and Shipley nightmares will be Cornerback Javier Arenas.

That will conclude the college football season. Next up…Senior Bowl…
