Odds are good you've heard about Florida State freshman quarterback Jameis Winston in some way or another. You've also heard of how the state of Alabama is going for its fifth consecutive national championship, and that dude who got a $100 bet on Auburn winning it all that will pay him $50,000 if the Tigers win.
Keep an eye on FSU defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, a disruptive force inside who will almost certainly be a first round pick. Offensive tackle Cameron Erving could shoot up the draft board with a strong performance tonight.
More than anything else, watch FSU WR Kelvin Benjamin. A product of Belle Glade, Fla., the same as former Steelers WR Santonio Holmes, Benjamin has elite level size and explosion. A big game tonight could be the final domino falling for him to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft.
It's curious how fast he is, but his strength and body control are obvious and could be enough to get him into the top 15, particularly with a big performance tonight.
