South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier caused a bit of a media firestorm last week when he said that Alabama was good enough to possibly beat an NFL team.
Obviously, Spurrier was tired of being out of the spotlight for the past few weeks and he was simply trolling for a reaction, which overzealous football fans and sports writers gladly gave him. Any rational person knows that no matter how good a college football team may be (and the 2012 version of Alabama might be one of the best ever), there is no way that it could possibly beat an NFL team loaded with professional players.
Still, even though there may not be any actual college team that could compete at the NFL level, there are certainly a number of individual players all around the country who are ready to play with the big boys in the pros.
Here's a look at the college football players who are physically ready to start for an NFL team right now.
