Sugar Bowl - Prospects To Watch and Discussion Thread

The Sugar Bowl is being played tonight and the two teams, Oklahoma and Alabama, are NFL factories who churn out countless NFL talent year after year. This game gives a possibility for Bears fans to get an early look at potential prospects in preparation for the offseason.

Prospects to watch (Round projections per WalterFootball.com)

Alabama:

FS - Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix #6 (Jr)

- It is widely known that Chicago's safety tandem struggled, and a player like Clinton-Dix could be a great upgrade. He is a first round prospect.

MLB - CJ Mosley #32 (Sr)

- A leader in the stout Alabama defence, particularly noted for strong pass coverage. A player the Bears could target for BPA especially considering the struggles of the Chicago linebacker core. He is a first round prospect.

LOLB - Adrian Hubbard #42 (RS Jr)

- A rush linebacker who has struggled this season, but can be an intriguing prospect if the Bears choose to change to a 3-4 defence. He is a second-third round prospect.

QB - AJ McCarron #10 (RS Sr)

- Widely decorated three year started, winner of the 2013 Maxwell Award, and two time National Championship winning starting quarterback. Possible development backup. Second-third round prospect.

RG - Anthony Steen #61 (RS Sr)

- Three year starter on the rock solid Alabama line. Potential target for OL depth. Second - fourth round prospect.

LT - Cyrus Kouandjio #71 (Jr)

- Two year starter. An unlikely option for the Bears, but who knows what Emery may do. First rounder.

Oklahoma:

CB - Aaron Colvin #14 (Sr)

- Good man cover corner, three year starter including one at safety. Potential DB target in the fourth - sixth rounds

C - Gabe Ikard #64 (RS Sr)

- Four year starter for Oklahoma and 3 time First Team All Big 12. Could be a target if the team decides to move on from Garza. Projected as a fifth-seventh rounder, but could rise meteorically.

WR - Jalen Saunders #8 (Sr)

- 5'9" height, 4.40 runner, can never have too many options for Jay. Projected sixth - UDFA rounds.
