CFB Championship - CBS Sports Top 100 Alabama & OSU

Trainmaster : 1/11/2021 4:59 pm
SY'56 used to do a "players to watch" for upcoming games (a ton of work I'm sure, but I do miss those posts).

From the CBS Sports CFB Rankings (I didn't see a date, but I think it's current / recent):


1st round rank:
4 Justin Fields Ohio St. Jr QB2 6-3 228
8 DeVonta Smith Alabama Sr WR2 6-1 175
9 Jaylen Waddle Alabama Jr WR3 5-10 182
13 Patrick Surtain II Alabama Jr CB2 6-2 202
15 Wyatt Davis Ohio St. Jr OL2 6-4 315
25 Mac Jones Alabama Jr QB5 6-3 214
27 Christian Barmore Alabama Soph DL2 6-5 310

2nd round rank:
38 Deonte Brown Alabama Sr OL9 6-4 350
44 Najee Harris Alabama Sr RB2 6-2 230
45 Alex Leatherwood Alabama Sr OL11 6-6 312
49 Dylan Moses Alabama Sr LB6 6-3 240
50 Shaun Wade Ohio St.Jr CB6 6-1 195

3rd round rank:
67 Chris Olave Ohio St. Jr WR11 6-1 188
72 Josh Myers Ohio St.Jr OL15 6-5 312
74 Landon Dickerson Alabama Sr OL16 6-6 325
84 Josh Jobe AlabamaJr CB11 6-1 192
88 Baron Browning Ohio St. Sr LB8 6-3 240

Hopefully some future Giant WR, CB, OL, LB or DL from this list. I wouldn't complain about Smith, Waddle or Surtain in the first round. I doubt Olave lasts to early in the third round, but the second round where the Giants pick might be a little early. Some good OL and LB prospects in rounds two and three.

Should be a great game. I'm looking forward to Olave vs Surtain; Smith vs Wade etc.

in three rounds for just two teams. I guess there is a reason that they are in the Champ Finals...

11 to 6
If Waddle is a go...

and he's 90%+, Ohio State is really going to have challenges in their secondary. Mattison is probably going to have to play a lot of zone and hope his front four can get to Jones.

The good thing is Jones isn't really a dual threat. The bad news is he is very sharp decision maker and rarely misses. And he'll use Billingsley and Harris underneath all day if he has to...
