As we'll describe in more detail in our Discover BCS National Championship preview, which will be published Friday, there will be a lot of talent on the field Monday night when the Alabama Crimson Tide take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

But how do the teams stack up in terms of future NFL potential? Let's take a look at the prospects that will be lining up for each team.


The Crimson Tide have 10 prospects currently receiving draftable grades from us, including nine in our top 250 and two in the first-round range (that doesn't include linebacker C.J. Mosley, who carried a first-round grade from us before announcing he was returning to Tuscaloosa for his senior season). The headliner of the group is guard Chance Warmack, who is the No. 3-ranked player on our board. He's followed closely by cornerback Dee Milliner, at No. 11.
