It would be close, but you may be right. I hate Geno's pocket presence late in the season and thats a HUGE thing in the NFL. I love Tyler Wilson though, and wish he had a better senior season. But I would snatch him or McCarron up yesterday if someone told us we could get either in the second round this year.

I'm not sure how McCarron would do on a team that has far less talent than Bama' does but compared to Barkley, Smith, Wilson, and others...he's freakishly poised and can make plays happen.

If he keeps doing what he does, he can easily secure a spot as a #1 overall pick IMO.

If your a Longhorn alum that is a big time booster, you know you are sitting there thinking that canning Mack and paying Saban a million more would be totally worth it. Hell, Alabama would never be able to match Texas for Saban's services, plus he gets the great stat of Texas.

I like 4 other Qb's better than Geno Smith. He is a product of his offense, and the lack of defense in the Big 12. Vastly overrated. It would be disappointing if the Texans took him no matter the round. Horrible pocket presence, and he is bad at pre and post snap reads. Austin and Bailey got alot of yards for him after the catch on intermediate routes.

Are you sure about that? I'm sure Alabama has some very wealthy booster of their own that would pony up to keep Saban if some school tried offering him a larger contract. Alabama isn't Syracuse or Western Michigan...

I like McCarron's moxie and such, but he does not come off as more than a 2nd/3rd round guy to me.

I know alabama the state might be poor, Alabama the university especially as pertains to football can and will match anything anybody wants to throw at Saban.

No offense to you or your daughter, but I'm pretty sure little Miss Alabama has that wrapped up. WOW. Shots of her in the stands was my favorite part of this game. What a lucky guy, you get to win a national championship (2nd) and then get to go home with that bird, he's like a young Tom Brady. I'm sold.

I can't agree with you here..... If you watch this guy enough you'll see there's not a single throw he can't make. I'm going to fall short of saying he reminds me of Tom Brady, but there's something about him that makes me think of Brady while watching him. Don't forget where Brady was drafted. McCarron does everything well. It's just not a sexy game because of the offense he plays in. To me he's big time underrated.

Man this cat went from looking like a top 7 pick to looking like a 5th round pick...

How does somebody who wins all those awards miss that many tackles?

Yeah, seriously. Teo might have just cost himself millions with that performance. Maybe the Ravens fans will get their wish and replace Ray Lewis with him after all!

There enough passing in the alabama offense that he can look sexy, if he is that kind of good. anyway, i have another season of college football to be convinced.

Just don't think a guy with Ms. alabama, 2 national titles would be messing around with a 5th year of college if he were any kind of lock at the top of draft.

I really don't understand why he isn't going into the draft this year. If I were him, I would draft this year because the QB class is so weak, he would be more likely to go in the 1st after riding all the hype of back to back NCs.

If he played in a different system. Lets go with West Vriginia's system, he would put up number's equal too or better than Geno Smith while winning more games. He is that good.

It doesn't seem so far fetched that maybe the kid grew up loving and respecting the Bama legacy. Now he is creating one of his own and he wants it to be the best. Legacy's are important to some people, Peyton, and Andrew Luck passed up being the number one pick to try and win NCAA championship's fairly recently.
