That would be awesome, especially if they did it the week before the Superbowl. NFL team with the #1 draft pick vs the college champion.

I'd even let them both play by their own rules: College team gets their huge roster and only needs 1 foot down for a completed catch, NFL team only has 46 players dressed and needs 2 feet down for a catch.

I envision it going something like this:

Raiders get the ball first:
Run for 12, run for 6, run for 19, run for 16, run for touchdown!

Alabama gets the ball:
Tackle for a loss (run). Tackle for a loss (screen pass). Sack! Punt blocked!

etc...


Football is a game won in the trenches, and the sheer domination of NFL interior linemen over their college counterparts would be devastating.
