It should come as no surprise that the Citi BCS National Championship Game is also the bowl game that features the most NFL-caliber talent.

Alabama and Texas boast 12 players who grade out as mid-round prospects or better, including three likely first-round picks. There are also 16 other players in the game who are late-round or rookie free agent possibilities.

Below is a breakdown of the top 12 NFL prospects from the Crimson Tide and Longhorns as well as a listing of the remaining prospects from each team. Underclassmen are denoted with an asterisk.
