NCAA Football: Alabama at Tennessee Bryan Lynn-USA TODAY Sports

The College Football Playoffs are upon us. We’ve got Oklahoma Vs. Alabama. If you are looking for it on TV, you can find it on ESPN at 8:00PM EST. Here are some names to keep an eye on.

Edge, Christian Miller, Alabama (#47)

Anfernee Jennings gets a lot of the spotlight on the edge, but Christian Miller is the better athlete and is just as disruptive.

Edge, Anfernee Jennings, Alabama (#33)

Anfernee is a powerful edge setter that uses his hands very well to gain leverage. He isn’t that explosive or fast though, which hurts his pass rushing ability.

T, Bobby Evans, Oklahoma (#71)

Evans has a ton of power and has the meanness that you like in a lineman. Looks to finish and dominate blocks downfield.

T/G, Cody Ford, Oklahoma (#74)

Cody Ford might be the best tackle on that Oklahoma line in the long run. He needs to work on his footwork.

OT, Jonah Williams, Alabama (#73)

Jonah Williams is probably the most well put together tackle in the draft. He is also scheme fluid, which will drive his stock up to being a top pick in 2019.

OG, Ben Powers, Oklahoma (#72)

Powers lives up to his name with a nose for power run blocking. Good build with little bad weight, durable player. Ben is a good puller and has very good reaction speed.

OG, Dru Samia, Oklahoma (#75)

Despite not having great lateral movement, Dru does move pretty smoothly to the second level. He blocks with a lot of power

G/C, Ross Pierschbacher, Alabama (#71)

Ross has done a great job in pass protection, but has been spotty in run blocking. He only allowed 4 pressures all year.

WR, Marquise Brown, Oklahoma (#5)

They don’t call him “Hollywood” Brown for nothing. This kid is a star and a playmaker. He can blow the top off of any defense.

RB, Damien Harris, Alabama (#32)

Harris is a very confident runner. He doesn’t waste any movement or time finding his running lane, and hitting it hard. Harris has good balance through contact.

RB, Irv Smith, Alabama (#82)

Irv Smith has been more than just a safety blanket for Tua. He has been a playmaker down the field and after the catch.
