The college football season is officially over, and the LSU Tigers have completed one of the best seasons in the sport's history. They finished 15-0, which has only happened twice in the sport's history, and defeated Clemson handily in the National Championship.

LSU signal-caller Joe Burrow broke several records during his Heisman-winning season in 2019, finishing with 65 total touchdowns. In Monday's National Championship victory over Clemson, Burrow finished with 463 passing yards and five touchdown passes, capping his incredible campaign. His performance Monday all but cemented his status as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Alabama was on the outside looking in for the first time in the College Football Playoff, but their loaded roster did not go unnoticed. The Crimson Tide make up eight of the first 32 picks in our latest mock draft.
