...any chance A.J. McCarron might say 3 rings is enough and decide to enter?
He's a 3rd to 4th round pick right now. If he waits, he's a 1st.
Doubt seriously he leaves. Could use another year.
And next years draft class doesn't look great at QB either.
This is what run-based spread offenses have done. Honestly, next year's class will be even worse than this year's. No Barkley, no Wilson, no... Moxie McGloin... I would definitely stay an extra year.
What?! McHandoff? A first round pick?
BornToBeRed said: WPS, just a head's up. We might be the most family-friendly board on the network, so take it easy on your normal wps-ness.
God you are dumb. What Nova makes me out to be, you are.
1st in line for unemployment?
Kid will never be a 1st rounder.
I have listened to the pre game of every Alabama game every week this year. Their draft expert who comes on EVERY week has said the same thing. I'll take him over you
Here's a guy who thinks he should be the number one pick THIS YEAR. But the Blue Board's got this, right? Some of you should stick to baseball IMO....
The NextEra Verizon Wireless 2013 NFL Mock Draft
Here's another mock draft that has AJ in the first. He's going tin the first guys
Round 1 of the 2014 NFL mock draft projections, with trade info based on weekly team projections and college and amateur player rankings.
“It wouldn’t shock me if we’re talking for the 2014 draft A.J. McCarron as a potential top 20 overall draft pick because he’s got enough tools. I just I like the way he plays the game.”- Todd McShay
LOL, who's next? Anyone?
Look, I think if he plays his senior year and does really well, he would have a chance for a first round pick (especially with the slop that he will be competing with), but this year he is way down the list. He just doesn't have the elite tools to make him a top pick unless he shows up on the field (as in, looks like more than a game manager).
That link that you provided which had him going first overall is an absolute joke.
EDIT: And never use Todd McShay as an example ever again.

McElroy was a winner and he is now 3rd string behind the worst 1st and 2nd string in the NFL.
I would bet anyone on here $100 AJ does not go 1st round. Kid is a game manager with a solid arm. Nothing more.
Also solid sources you're finding this draft talks from.......
What elite tools is he lacking? Elite speed? OK. Who does have elite speed and how did that shape up? He has a very strong, accurate arm to go along with a 6'4" frame, and will stand in the pocket to deliver the pass. The negatives I've head on him are he is skinny (not really anymore) and he is a bit of a gunslinger. He's about to throw for 3,000 yards in a fun first offense where two RB's went over 1,000 yards and so did a WR. What that means is, they didn't need to throw but did because he was so good. His WR's corps are going to be the best in the SEC in not the entire country next season and he is going to kill it. Absent of a mental breakdown and If he comes back and stays healthy, he will be a 1st round pick. It's too long from now to do a sig bet but I would do one for a year.
Game manager? And you want me to waste my time with you? Nope. You are going on ignore so I know not to take your troll posts seriously.
He will have a monster year next year as well which will make a good case for him. The WR core is going to be sick.
When did he say this? I'd bet it was before the season, or at least very early in the season. McCarron doesn't go before the 3rd round. I'd predict 4th to 5th round. And for him to be a 1st round pick he'll have to be MUCH better than he has been.
He's played with a lot of talent already.
Nope, on October 19 in an SI.com article
McShay is very respected for his opinion on the game and the fact that he believes so much in McCarron’s skill is a great endorsement for the ‘Bama thrower down the road. While McShay likes what he sees in McCarron, just how high does he believe the junior could be selected when he enters the NFL Draft?
“It wouldn’t shock me if we’re talking for the 2014 draft A.J. McCarron as a potential top 20 overall draft pick because he’s got enough tools, and I just I like the way he plays the game,” said McShay.
Yeah, with 3 of our top 4 WR's out with season ending injuries.
You mean the same Toddy McShay who said Blaine Gabbert would be a better NFL quarterback than Cam Newton and Andy Dalton. How has the prediction worked out?
Pretty well, he's still getting paid to talk football. How's your job working out?
ESPN is full of idiots who have no clue what they are talking about. McShay should feel right at home
McShay also said that UGA has more NFL ready talent than bama, and bama fans acted like that was ludacris and he shouldn't ever be cited as a credible resource ever again. Not saying you said that weed, but it is humorous to see how people use quotes from sources to benefit the debate at hand and then discredit that source later.
Sounds like some people on the Blue Board I know. Now it's the top minds in this field disagree with me so THEY are the ones who are wrong. Yep, seems legit. You guys got owned. Deal with it. Some of you know better than to argue this kind of stuff with me too so it makes it look twice as bad. You ain't gonna win brah
