However, I also wanted to take a few minutes to highlight some of the championship game’s top professional prospects.
With programs like Alabama and Georgia playing in the title game, it’ll come as a surprise to absolutely no one that many of the stars of tonight’s game will one day have high NFL draft odds.
With that in mind, here’s a quick look at some of the top NFL draft prospects in tonight’s championship game, which should be helpful for those of you that haven’t started reading the 2022 mock drafts just yet.
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Evan Neal, Alabama OT
Evan Neal is widely regarded as the top prospect at offensive tackle in this year’s draft. Historically, that means he’ll likely go in the top 10. Many draft analysts are projecting he could go as high as No.1 overall to Jacksonville.
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Nakobe Dean, Georgia LB
Georgia has plenty of draft prospects, but not a ton who are guaranteed first-rounders. Dean could be the exception, as his speed and playmaking ability in the middle of the defense have him going in the middle of the first round in most current mocks.
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Jameson Williams, Alabama WR
Williams has become Alabama’s de facto playmaker in the passing game since John Metchie was injured. He erupted in the SEC Championship Game against Georgia and could cap his career with another big game on Monday night.
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Derion Kendrick, Georgia CB
An unquestioned talent in the Georgia secondary, Kendrick could be an immediate impact player in the NFL. He’s more likely to be drafted as a Day 2 guy, but a team that really likes could make the decision to snag him in the final portion of the first round. His performance on Monday night could move the needle.
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Jordan Davis, Georgia DT
History says you’ve got to be a truly elite defensive tackle to crack the Heisman voting. Davis is the real deal, boasting physical skills that are genuinely rare for interior defensive lineman. Don’t be surprised if he goes in the first round.
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Trevon Walker, Georgia DL
Another Georgia playmaker at the line of scrimmage that likely goes off the board on Day 2.
2022 NFL Draft Odd: Christian Harris, Alabama LB
Christian Harris is one of the top playmakers for Alabama at the college level. His value at the professional level could be just a tad deflated, as he likely won’t go off the board during the first round. Still, teams willing to spend their capital on him in rounds 2-3 are getting a highly experienced playmaker.
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Henry To’o To’o, Alabama LB
The one-time Tennessee Vol topped 100 tackles after transferring to Tuscaloosa.
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Jordan Battle, Alabama S
Safety is generally a devalued position when it comes to the NFL Draft, but Alabama’s standout should still find his way onto draft boards on Day 2.
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Devonte Wyatt, Georgia DT
A question you might be asking yourself right now: “How is it possible that Georgia has three defensive linemen this good?”
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Phidarian Mathis, Alabama DT
Georgia is not the only team with a good defensive tackle.
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Jalyn Armour-Davis, Alabama CB
His health is a concern right now, but his value as a prospect is hard to deny.
2022 NFL Draft Odds: Quay Walker, Georgia LB
