Alabama-Tennessee matchup draws 19 NFL scouts, per report
Saturday’s matchup between Alabama and Tennessee is the most anticipated one across the college football landscape currently, and it’s easy to see why as this is the first time in recent history that it seems the Vols have a legitimate chance to get the victory.
And while Neyland Stadium will be packed with closely watching fans, it won’t be just the casual viewer with their eyes on this one. According to a report from Alabama beat reporter Charlie Potter, there will be 19 NFL scouts from a host of different professional teams in attendance.
These include the Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots, New York Giants, Tennessee Titans and Seattle Seahawks — just to name a handful. This isn’t surprising considering the high stakes of this particular contest and how frequently both programs put quality talent into the NFL.
