**Due to time constraints I will merely be reprinting my work from the CHTV Draft Guide for WRs and QBs. I wish I had more time to write up all my notes but such is the life of a part time freelancer. Thanks for your understanding.**

Name: A.J. McCarron

School: Alabama

Height: 6’3”

Weight: 220

40-Yard Dash: 4.94

In a nutshell: McCarron is comfortable in a pro-style offense, both under center and in a shotgun formation. He has solid accuracy on short-to-intermediate throws, though McCarron has a tendency to be off target on longer throws, forcing receivers to adjust too much. Does not have a huge arm, and benefitted from having an excellent offense around him.


Sugar Bowl: McCarron posted some great yardage and touchdown totals, but turned the ball over three times—two interceptions and one fumble which was returned for a touchdown. Both interceptions set up scores by Oklahoma as well. McCarron threw some really nice passes overall but made far too many mistakes.
