A.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama

After leading the Crimson Tide to an incredible 34-2 record under his tenure, McCarron is the next great Alabama quarterback in line to hit the NFL. An exemplary leader and student of the game, McCarron has the mental acuity and enough of the necessary physical tools to compete at the next level.

Very competitive and fiery leadership. Will challenge his teammates and is vocal with his teammates to stay on task and focused. Excellent decision-making with the football. Limits turnovers and bad throws at an elite level. Knows when to get out of the pocket and just get rid of it. Will not hang on to the ball and force the issue. Really good accuracy in the short game. Arm strength is average. Decent velocity, nothing special. Winds up when he throws at times. Insufficient arm strength to make the big throws. Poor accuracy beyond 25 to 30 yards. Surprisingly evasive. Faster than most would expect. Pretty good pocket awareness but can look a bit excitable when running for a first out of a broken pocket.

Scouts will love his personality and leadership. Very willing to put in the work in film study.

McCarron projects as a third rounder in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Prediction: 4th Round

I see a Day 3 future for A.J. He's more of a game manager type than a guy who will put a team on his back. In the perfect situation, could be an Alex Smith type.
Low end starter/high end backup.
