Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports has spoken to a few evaluators who “strongly” believe Alabama QB A.J. McCarron will be the fourth or fifth quarterback to come off the board.
- La Canfora adds that the evaluators “continue to gush about his film,” and mentions that McCarron has been flying under the radar.
McCarron mentioned a few weeks ago that NFL teams have told him that they have a first-round grade on him.
“They felt like I could go anywhere from 16-35,” McCarron said, via Al.com. “I believe that, too. At the same time, I don’t have my hopes set on anything. Whatever happens, happens. It’s a blessing for me to even be in this situation.”
It seems highly unlikely that the Cowboys would be in play for him at No. 16 overall. La Canfora isn’t saying that McCarron will come off the board in round one, but he could certainly be high day-two selection as there are a number of teams in need of a quarterback drafting at that point.
McCarron has met with a number of teams in need of a quarterback including the Browns, Ravens, Jaguars, Rams, Patriots while canceling a visit with the Titans. The Cardinals have also come up as a team to watch in regards to McCarron.
We have McCarron falling past round two in our most recent 2014 NFL Mock Draft, but that could change later in the week.
