Taggart: Alabama could be next NFL expansion team

Willie Taggart is no stranger to playing some of the best teams in the country. Two years ago it was Nebraska, last year it was LSU.

This season is no different as Taggart and the Western Kentucky crew will take on Alabama on Saturday. After taking a look at the film, Taggart had some high praise for the Tide.

"LSU wasn't the defending national champions. These guys are the defending national champions. They came out and had a really good game (Saturday). Doesn't seem like they let off. By far one of the best teams in the country."

"If you ask me, they're going to be the next expansion team in the NFL. They'll be that 33rd team in the NFL. They are loaded. Sometimes you look at those guys and say, 'That's not fair.'"

Taggart added that the Tide "may be able to give Green Bay a shot."

"It seems like those same players are back. They just put some different numbers on them. I was banking on it. They lost all those guys to the NFL. You're like, 'There's no way they can come back and have that same type of defense."

"Once again, Nick Saban proved us wrong. He reloaded, restocked. Probably have another six guys on their defense who are ready for the NFL."

Taggart and the Hilltoppers will face the Tide up in Tuscaloosa at 3:30 on Saturday. You can catch the game on ESPN3 or the SEC Network.
