Greg McElroy, QB, Alabama

McElroy is not going to blow anyone away with his athleticism, but he is about as solid as they come. He started his last two seasons at quarterback for Alabama and guided the team to a BCS National Championship as a junior. McElroy completed 198 of 325 passes for 2508 yards while throwing 17 touchdowns against just four interceptions that season. He was even better as a senior, going 222 of 313 for 2987 yards, 20 touchdowns, and a mere five interceptions.

As the stats indicate, McElroy is a master game-manager who minimizes his mistakes and excels in efficiency. A good decision-maker, McElroy saw his natural intelligence transfer to the football field. Off the field, he scored a 43 on the Wonderlic test and was a finalist for the Rhodes Scholarship.

McElroy has good size at 6'2'' and 220 pounds, but his athleticism is limited. He has been clocked as fast as 4.78 in the 40-yard dash, which is not going to wow anyone at the quarterback position. He struggles to escape out of the pocket and his delivery is long, which could especially be a problem under increased pressure in the NFL. McElroy does not have great potential, but the fact that he is so solid could garner him a selection on draft day. He won't be off the board prior to the fifth round, but he also might not be an undrafted free agent.
