The best take on the best tonight.

In tonight’s CFP National Championship Game between Alabama and Ohio State, there are an absolute WEALTH of talent on either sideline.

Off the top of my head, here are the best players to watch for either team:


  • QB Mac Jones
  • WR Devonta Smith
  • WR Jaylen Waddle (if he returns from injury)
  • RB Najee Harris
  • OT Alex Leatherwood
  • OG Deonte Brown
  • DT Christian Barmore
  • LB Dylan Moses
  • CB Patrick Surtain

Ohio State

  • QB Justin Fields
  • RB Trey Sermon
  • WR Chris Olave
  • TE Jeremy Ruckert
  • OG Wyatt Davis
  • DT Tommy Togiai
  • LB Tuf Borland
  • LB Baron Browning
  • CB Shaun Wade

The prospects in this game that I like the most for the Chargers are obviously the offensive line prospects (Davis, Leatherwood, Brown) but the cornerbacks of Surtain and Wade are also going to be ones to keep an eye on. Surtain had another solid year while Wade has been discussed as a player whop regressed a ton in 2020. Nonetheless, there’s a ton of great players to be had in this matchup.

Ejoy the game and feel free to discuss tonight’s events in the comments below!
