Can the Gators or Sooners beat the lowly Lions?

Could the Sooners or Gators (assuming that their entire rosters is healthly) beat the 0-16 Detriot Lions. There are plently of future stars on the both the Sooners and Gators but could they match up against an NFL team as bad as the Lions?

Oklahoma: Sam is an eligible sophomore. He plays QB for Oklahoma. In just 2 years he has shown that he has the ability to take over games and become a superstar in the NFL. Sam is 6'4", 220 lbs and he runs between a 4.5-4.6 40 yard dash. His ability to throw his passes accurately and with power on it gives him the chance to be the #1 QB taken and maybe for the Lions the No. 1 pick in the Draft, top 3 pick

Comparison - Eli Manning

Reggie Smith (CB) - Smith is an outstanding athlete who covers a lot of ground in the secondary. He's a versatile defender who can play corner or safety at the next level, 1st rounder

Nic Harris (CB) -Harris is a big-time safety who has the skills to play in coverage or in the box and defend the run. He has great awareness and positions himself well to make plays, 1st rounder

Malcolm Kelly (WR) - Kelly is a big, physical vertical threat who possesses game breaking ability when the ball is in his hands. He gets a quick release off the line, uses his frame to his advantage, and has the ability to make acrobatic receptions with his tremendous athleticism. 1st or 2nd

Other drafties - Juaquin Iglesias, George Robinson, Phil Loadholt, Curtis Loften, and Lendy Holmes.

  Side Note: DeMarco Murray - 3rd most yards from scrimmage in the NCAA this year but is out for the national title game.

Florida: Tebow is one of the best college players ever, wining the Maxwell Award twice, the Heisman, and a National Championship as a freshman (with Chris Leak.) He will probably enter the draft this year because next years draft will be stacked with McCoy, Sanchez, Stafford, etc...He is very physical, makes smart plays, but his slow release is what may hinder his success as a pro. ( 2nd or 3rd round)

Percy Harvin: Percy Harvin, junior, Florida, has been selected AP All-American Second Team for the 2008 college football season as voted on by The Associated Press. The versatile Harvin is averaging 103.0 all-purpose yards per game for the Gators and has scored 16 touchdowns in 2008, nine rushing and seven receiving. He has scored a touchdown in each of the last 14 games he has played in, which is the best in the nation. He has rushed for 538 yards on just 61 carries this season, averaging 8.8 yards per rush, second best in the nation. Harvin leads the Gators with 35 catches and 595 receiving yards, averaging 17.0 yards per catch (1st rounder)

Brandon Spikes: He is just a great linebacker, period. Spikes hits like a ton of bricks and has nice size at 6' 3" 240 lbs. He recorded 87 tackles, 8 TFLs, 2 sacks and 4 INTs in 2008.

Other drafties: Carlos Dunlap, Louis Murray,

Now compare: The Detroit Lions struggle @ virtually every position with the exception of Calvin Johnson and Kevin Smith being a few of the bright spots. Both the Sooners and Gators put up points in bunches which could make the game a shoot out. With strong offenses, it helps to cover their slightly suspect defenses. I just saying this would be a good game to have national broadcasted. Picking up what I'm putting down.
