We aren't just committed to college football; we're early enrolling in it.
College football scuttlebutt and scoop- powered by Football Rumor Mill
Where the madness isn't just in March.
You have no favorite boards.
Who will hold the clipboard longer in the NFL?
Murray is more athletic and has more potential, IMO.
Murray looks like a classier, more put together young man. This leads me to believe he has better penmanship. Murray > McCarron IMHO.
Butch Jones. Who???
I'll take McCarron in the pros over Murray any day.
Is this seriously a question? Look at how horrible Murray has played vs a lot of good teams on his schedule.
Plus he is small and doesn't have a great arm.
McCarron because he will throw it out of bounds instead of throwing it to someone covered by 3 defenders.
I think McCarron has a chance to become a really solid QB...possibly an occasional starter in the league. I'm pretty sure he's hurting pretty bad right now. I don't know what, but rumors abound that he's playing with significant limitations, they're just not disclosing what it is. He has a very strong arm and is really just now maturing as a QB. I expect him back at Bama next year, so he's got one more offseason to take complete control of the team or not. Personally, I'm quite impressed with him. I have no complaints. He's missed some open guys the past couple weeks, but any Bama fan that throws him under the bus never strapped on a helmet and played the game, IMO.
I suppose I didn't address the OP very well. Murray has some potential, but I haven't seen him enough to be honest about it. I'd give measureables and arm to McCarron from what I've seen, though.
I think McCarron will be drafted higher. Beyond that, who knows. Murray has ability, will just need to fine tune quite a bit.
