It's no secret that No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Clemson are most likely the two best teams the country, but the pro-caliber talent lining up on either end of Monday's 2019 College Football Playoff National Championship could be historic.
That's because we could be looking at more than 20 potential future 2019 NFL Draft selections playing in the same game – and that's just for the 2019 Draft class. And it's not just quantity either, considering talents like Alabama DT Quinnen Williams, Alabama OT Jonah Williams and Clemson DE Clelin Ferrell could come off the board in the first 10 overall picks.
If Lawrence, Wilkins, and Ferrell go on to be selected in the first round, that means Tagovailoa and Alabama's offense will have already faced a defensive line comprised of three NFL-ready, first-round talents in a collegiate game.
There's no doubt Monday night's title game will be a heavyweight bout, so don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for a potential record-breaking number of pros to face off with another for the CFP crown.
The final game of the college football season pits a pair of familiar rivals against each other.
The Alabama Crimson Tide and Clemson Tigers are facing off for the fourth year in a row in the College Football Playoff, with Monday's meeting the third time in the national championship.
Nick Saban's Crimson Tide won the initial title clash with the Tigers in 2016, while Dabo Swinney's program returned the favor in 2017.
Clemson is attempting to rebound from a poor performance against the Tide a year ago in which it scored just six points in a Sugar Bowl loss to its top rival.
