1. Green Bay Packers - The Packers got to fill a major need with a player that many had predicted to go at number five overall to the Kansas City Chiefs. Bulaga is the big, strong offensive lineman that the Packers desperately need. Adding Bulaga to the Packers just makes this already dangerous offense even more dangerous.
2. Oklahoma Sooners Football - If a star recruit is having a hard time deciding between a few schools, he can look at this draft for a good indication of where to go if he wants to make it to the next level. With Sam Bradford going first overall, Gerald McCoy going third overall, and Trent Williams going fourth overall, the recruiting for Bob Stoops just got a whole lot easier.
3. Tim Tebow - After all the criticism he received this offseason, Tim Tebow goes in the first round to a solid football team in the Denver Broncos. Not to mention he goes ahead of predicted top ten pick Jimmy Clausen. Now the hard part for Tebow, proving that Denver made the right decision.
1. Buffalo Bills - The Bills already had a solid running back duo in Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson, then they go out and get C.J. Spiller? This is a pass first league now; Jimmy Clausen should have been the pick here. Spiller is a great all-around player, and the Bills can be a great running team next year, but passing the ball is what wins games these days, not running it. (See Colts vs. Saints Superbowl)
2. San Diego Chargers - The Chargers trade up a plethora of spots, giving up a second rounder, and then take Ryan Mathews... who would have more than likely still been there at the Chargers original pick. Running back was probably San Diego's biggest need, sure, but taking a guy with limited upside way too early when they could have gotten him with keeping their second rounder was a colossal mistake by the Chargers.

Orange Bowl: Iowa vs. Georgia Tech
Prediction: Georgia Tech's offense will be a big test for Iowa. Jonathan Dwyer has a nice game but falls up short as Iowa pulls off somewhat of an upset.
Score: Iowa 24, Georgia Tech 21
Rose Bowl: Ohio State vs. Oregon
Prediction: Oregon's offensive weapons will be too much for Ohio State to handle. The up-and-down Terrelle Pryor has a down game and Oregon D takes advantage of the opportunity.
Score: Oregon 24, Ohio State 14
Fiesta Bowl: TCU vs. Boise State
Prediction: Kellen Moore and the Boise State offense will be exploited by an aggressive TCU defense. The TCU offense led by Andy Dalton will do enough to get the job done.
Score: TCU 28, Boise State 21
Sugar Bowl: Cincinnati vs. Florida
Prediction: Tim Tebow, in his final game, won't accept a second consecutive loss. In a high scoring game that will be the most entertaining, Florida's offense will have a fun game vs. Cincinnati's weak defense.
Score: Florida 38, Cincinnati 17
National Championship Game: Alabama vs. Texas
Prediction: Alabama is the favorite and for good reason... their defense is rock solid and their offense can light up the scoreboard. They have a Heisman candidate in sophomore running back Mark Ingram. However, the Longhorns want this game badly after knowing they could've won it all last season. Colt McCoy is a Heisman candidate as well, and he's got a great target in Jordan Shipley. The Longhorns defense gets it done in the upset.
Score: Texas 23, Alabama 21

Oklahoma Sooners (1) vs. Florida Gators (2)
After the dust settled, the two top teams in college football have emerged to play in the national championship in January. On one side, the offensive juggernaut that is Oklahoma. Led by Heisman candidate Sam Bradford and star tailback DeMarco Murray, Oklahoma tends to make scoring look easy. On the other side, the Florida Gators will attempt to show why Tim Tebow-Percy Harvin is the best combination in college football today. With the dual threat quarterback Tim Tebow and the speedy, athletic Percy Harvin, the Sooners' defense will be up for a challenge. Two great coaches in Bob Stoops (OU) and Urban Meyer (UF).
Oklahoma Sooners: Players to Watch
1. Sam Bradford, QB
If Oklahoma wants to win this game, Sam Bradford will have to play the game of his life. Against a tough Gator defense, Bradford must keep his calm throughout the game and continue to make smart decisions as he has all year.
2. Manuel Johnson, WR
Coming back from injury, Manuel Johnson is slowly looking like his old self. With Florida focusing mainly on teammate Juaquin Iglesias, Johnson could be in store for a big game.
3. Chris Brown, RB
Anyone who didn't know who Chris Brown was now knows. The second half of the Sooners' great run game will look to rush for over 100 yards for the fourth time in five games.
Florida Gators: Players to Watch
1. Tim Tebow, QB
Dual threat quarterback Tim Tebow will have to play like his Heisman self against a physical Oklahoma defense. As long as his offensive line plays well, Tebow is a huge threat in the backfield, passing or rushing.
2. Percy Harvin, WR/RB
Another dual threat, Harvin is one of the most feared players in college when he has his hands on the ball. With his speed and athleticism, Percy can take it in for six any time he touches the ball.
3. Louis Murphy, WR
One of Tebow's trusted targest, Louis Murphy is a reliable receiver when Harvin is not avaiable. Look for Murphy to see the ball a lot with Harvin getting a lot of attention from the Sooners' defense.
1st- Tim Tebow 24 yard pass to Louis Murphy (UF 7, OU 0)
2nd- Percy Harvin 17 yard run (UF 14, OU 14)
Mossis Madu 2 yard run, 2 pt conversion good (OU 34, UF 28)
Sam Bradford 19 yard pass to Juaquin Iglesias (OU 41, UF 28)
Tim Tebow 21 yard pass to Percy Harvin (OU 41, UF 35)
4th- Jimmy Stevens 42 yard FG (OU 44, UF 35)
