By Matt Fortuna
Alabama has 10 prospects currently receiving draftable grades from Scouts Inc. Notre Dame has seven, though it has additional NFL talent on its roster that will not be eligible for this April's draft.
Chance Warmack leads the contingent for the Tide. Manti Te'o leads the way for the Irish.
Todd McShay breaks down the pro potential on both rosters, and one of the names that may stand out for Notre Dame is Jamoris Slaughter, the fifth-year safety whose season -- and likely college career -- ended with an Achilles tear suffered in the Sept. 15 win at Michigan State.
