It sounds like a number of NFL scouts are grading out Alabama QB A.J. McCarron as a 2nd day selection, falling within the 2nd or 3rd round of the draft. Here is what Senior Bowl Executive Director Phil Savahe had to say on a podcast:
“I think if you asked all 32 teams right now on a bell curve, there’d be two or three teams who would have him potentially as a high second-round, maybe even late first-round pick,” Savage told the CFB 24/7 podcast. “Then there would be two or three teams that would have him in the fourth or fifth round, that are not that impressed with his arm strength, what have you.”
If you are a team at the top of the draft like the Texans, would you consider taking Jadeveon Clowney or Anthony Barr with the first pick and go after McCarron in the next round?
McCarron has potential and he knows how to win games. I think he will be a solid starter in the league for years.
