I was able to make it to South Carolina last weekend to see the Gamecocks take on Southern Miss and to Atlanta for the LSU-North Carolina matchup. This week Scouts Inc. goes even further south to take in the Penn State-Alabama game.

My colleague Todd McShay looked at Nittany Lions RB Evan Royster and Crimson Tide WR Julio Jones on a blog entry earlier this week, and highly rated Alabama prospects RB Mark Ingram (knee) and DT Marcell Dareus (suspension) will be out, but there is still plenty of future NFL talent to break down in this matchup.

Here are the other players I'll have an eye on when these heavyweight programs take the field.
