I've said it for a while, he's the Trent Dilfer of College Football. That translates to 7-8 year backup in the NFL.
You may be right,

I will take his 1 SB ring though.

Then I guess we can sign McCarron as our backup after he has 7 years in the league.

Trent Dilfer was WAY better of a QB/passer in college than he was the pros. We went 30/5 his Senior season.

I'm saying AJ is like Dilfer OF COLLEGE. Meaning he will be damn near worthless in the NFL.

As an LSU fan, the thought of McCarron going from trumped-up Heisman runner-up to UDFA brings a warm, loving feeling to the cockles of my heart.

To me, it feels like he's just trying to maintain his stock and not hurt it. Going to the Senior Bowl and looking bad without elite Bama talent around him would confirm everything his naysayers have against him. Instead of proving them wrong, he sits out. This, and his performance against Oklahoma, will hurt his stock regardless. No reason for him to skip the Senior Bowl IMO.

Unless he absolutely lights it up at the combine and / or Bama Pro day, I think his stock is in free fall.

So are people starting to figure out that McCarron is an over-hyped, under-talented Matt Barkley?

FWIW, I think about 80% of this board (including myself *humble brag*) all thought that about him. There were only about 20% defenders (you can find them in this thread and elsewhere).

I think the main place I've heard McCarron's name is on ESPN and local sports radio, which I'm starting to understand are all idiots the more I hang out around this message board.

He will be better than Matt Barkley though.

I've watched his youtube videos, the highlights as well as his cutups against certain teams. I like the guy. I mean really like the guy. He's not my favorite QB in this draft, but I see no reason he can't be a franchise QB.

He's got the size, good enough arm, smart with the ball, & plays well. I understand he's had a lot of help, he's not as flashy as some of the other guys, definitely not as athletic.

But I hope he falls in the draft, I hope he has a chip on his shoulder, & if we draft Bridgewater or Manziel, I hope we get him in the 3rd/4th..... Kirk Cousins like insurance.

I don't see it happening TK. We have more holes to fill than picks to fill them with. I think I can safely predict you won't see a Shanny move for McCarron. Just ain't gonna happen.

Should I care about how athletic my QB is?

If I should, I'm doing it wrong.

yep. unless he is Luck, Collin K., RGIII or someone who can a difference make with athleticism, then running a 4.75 40 when we think he is going to run 4.85 probably is not significant.

Maybe he is Kapaernick-esque and that rat Saban has been holding him back this whole time......

So do you expect more of a Leinhart type career where he's a backup and then slowly fades away?

McCarron is my favorite QB in this class. I know most people are down on him. But he's the guy I would be targeting. It sucks that he had such a talented team in Alabama, but the team I plan to put him on is even better.

I think he's the most ready to start of all of them.

And what team is that? I don't think there is any team in the NFL right now that is as comparatively dominant and has such a wide talent gap over the competition as Bama does in the NCAA.
