Alabama and Clemson University will face off in the College Football National Championship Monday night but, why does it matter to the New York Giants.

The New York Giants hold the sixth overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft following their 5-11 record in 2018.

At six, the Giants will likely be looking for either an offensive lineman or a quarterback in hopes of giving Saquon Barkley and the offense some help.

When it comes to offensive linemen, the likely candidate for the Giants pick at six is playing in the National Championship Monday night.

That man is 6’5″, 301 pound offensive tackle, Jonah Williams out of Alabama.

Williams has been fantastic for Alabama all season and he hopes to continue that tonight as they take on Clemson.

Williams is part of an offensive line that has allowed Heisman runner-up, Tua Tagovailoa to be sacked only 12 times on the season.

At this point, the Alabama offensive line is probably better than that of the Giants, and Jonah Williams is a large part of that line.

Should the Giants draft Williams, they would be getting a guy who has blocked against some of the best defensive linemen in the country, and they are getting a guy who has played football at the highest level since he stepped onto a college football field in 2016.

Williams is a fantastic player and would do wonders for whatever team that should draft him, but hopefully it’s the Giants.

But, Jonah Williams isn’t the only reason this game matters for Big Blue.

Although Tua Tagovailoa isn’t eligible for the draft this year, 2019, he is next year and he will be a hot commodity when he is available.

Tagovailoa was incredible for the Crimson Tide this year, racking up 3,671 yards with 41 touchdowns and only four interceptions.

These are incredible to begin with, but what if I told you he played in the fourth quarter in only four games this season?

In all but four games this year, Tagovailoa was pulled when the Crimson Tide were up big to avoid injury.

On multiple occasions Tagovailoa played in only the first quarter or first half, not even making it to the third quarter.

So, if he is putting up these kinds of stats without playing complete games, could you imagine what he could do over the course of the season had he played every snap?

Should the Giants still need a quarterback come the 2020 Draft, Tua Tagovailoa is a guy that will be hard to pass up on.
