Florida Vs. Alabama- Prospects to Watch

Updated: October 2, 2010

Tomorrow the most antcipated game in the SEC (and possibly the nation) will go down.  Florida vs. Alabama.  Just to give you an idea of how big this game is, the past two seasons the winner of this game has appeared in the National Title Game.

All that is fine and dandy, but from a NFL Draft point of view who should we be watching?

First on the offensive side, look for Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson. There are whispers in the draft community that Richardson will be the better pro back.  I am unsure about all of that, but I am sure that whatever happens tomorrow will boost the stock of one or both of these players.  I expect them to combine for at least 170 yards tomorrow.

Julio Jones is another prospect that many cannot agree on.  Some people look at him and think “Randy Moss” and others see a talented kid who hasn’t dominated yet the way he should week in and week out.

Maurkice Pouncey’s brother Mike Pouncey on the Florida side is going to be one to watch as well.  Can he dominate like his brother did and boost his stock to the first round? Time will tell.

And finally on the defensive side you have to look out for Donta Hightower.  After playing last year next to Rolondo McClain this is his year to shine in the big game.  I expect to hear his name called a lot by the announcers.

Florida and Alabama look to have another great game in this series Saturday.
