BCS National Championship 2013: Notre Dame vs. Alabama Open Thread

Matt Cashore-US PRESSWIRE

Alabama vs. Notre Dame. Now there's a matchup I didn't expect to see in this game. Still, it's happened, and we get the two least likable college football teams facing off. Oh what fun we'll have. Roll Bama Roll and One Foot Down have all the coverage you'll need on the two teams. As always, Mocking the Draft has all the draft watch notes.

This game is absolutely filled with NFL talent, however. The most obvious player the Buccaneers should be interested in is Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner, widely seen as the best cornerback in the draft. Other NFL-ready players for Alabama include G Chance Warmack, C Barrett Jones, RT D.J. Fluker (quite an offensive line), RB Eddie Lacy, NT Jesse Williams, DE Damion Square, and linebackers C.J. Mosley, Nico Johnson and Adrian Hubbard.

Meanwhile, Notre Dame's talent isn't too shabby either. Tight end Tyler Eifert has been linked with the Bucs, although drafting him at #13 in the first round may be overreaching. RB/WR Theo Riddick is another player to keep an eye on, and on defense they have DE/DT Kapron Lewis-Moore, NT Louis Nix, DE Stephon Tuitt and finally, safety Zeke Motta.
