Ranking 15 Teams Capable of Winning 2017/2018 National Championship

1. Alabama

The Alabama Crimson Tide lost a ton in the 2017 NFL Draft. Seven defensive starters from a year ago (Eddie Jackson, Reuben Foster, Jonathan Allen, Ryan Anderson, Tim Williams, Dalvin Tomlinson, Marlon Humphrey) were selected, and two more on the offensive side of the ball (ArDarius Stewart, O.J. Howard, Cam Robinson) heard their name called during the draft weekend.

With that said, Alabama still possesses the deepest roster of any program. QB Jalen Hurts returns with one year of experience under his belt, and there isn’t a squad in the country able to match the Crimson Tide’s talent at running back. Oh…and there’s that Nick Saban guy grumpily patrolling the sidelines. Alabama is shooting for its fifth title in the last nine years.
