Monday’s National Championship Game features the two best teams in college football. Who are the top 2020 NFL Draft prospects to look out for during the title game?

Both LSU and Clemson are absolutely loaded with talent. Some talented players are underclassmen in this matchup that will have at least one more year playing college football in Trevor Lawerence, Justyn Ross, Derek Stingley Jr., and Ja’Marr Chase, but these rosters are littered with 2020 NFL Draft prospects as well.

We could see at least nine players in this game get drafted in the top-50 in the 2020 NFL Draft alone. Also, these teams are built for the future in young players’ getting talked about in the national spotlight for top draft selections in the coming years. I originally planned on doing five prospects to watch but realized how loaded these two teams were, so here are my top-10 2020 NFL Draft prospects to keep your eye on in the National Championship Game.

1. Joe Burrow, QB, LSU

Quarterback Rank: 1, Overall Rank: 1

What else needs to be said? Joe Burrow is on another level. He is all but locked into the number one overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to the Cincinnati Bengals and for good reason. This game is another opportunity for Burrow to solidify himself as the top guy in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The growth he has experienced as a quarterback from the end of the 2018 season until now is unheard of. He has the hardware with his Heisman Trophy but adding a National Championship title will only strengthen his already impressive resume this season.
