2014 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about AJ McCarron: Alabama, 6032 220 4.94. Three-year starter. A competitive move-the-chains type of player in a structured offense. Throws the ball well to the outside of the field with anticipation and timing. Good touch to throw over linebackers. Patient in the pocket. Makes good decisions. Alabama’s single season passing record holder. Two-time national champion and three-year starter who enjoyed playing behind one of the best offensive lines in college football history. Played under center and in the shotgun for the Tides’ pro style offense. Did a consistent job of executing the offense which featured play action, roll out, and timing pass routes. Deadly when in rhythm. Stays focused with his eyes down the field when lighting up a secondary. Stands tall in the pocket. Has the ability to manage the team from start to finish. Focused and not distracted during the game. Good touch. Plays a lot of pitch and catch with wide open receivers. Lacks the arm strength to stick the ball through a tight window in coverage. Can step away from pressure and scramble for positive yards. Good ball handler and ball placement to receivers. How will he be in a new system? Needs to physically get bigger and stronger. 2013 stats: 226/336, 3063 passing yds, 67.3%, 28 TD, 7 INT. Ball velocity 53 mph. OSR:15/18. Third/fourth round. (A-31 1/2, H-10, SS-4.34, VJ-28).
