A.J. McCarron’s draft stock high with NFL teams, compared to Tom Brady

Senior Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron has received some high praise from one NFL scout. According to Matt Miller, one AFC scouting director has compared McCarron to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

There are some prevalent similarities between the two players. Brady has three Super Bowl Championships; McCarron has three BCS Championships. Each quarterback plays for the greatest coach of their generation (Belichick and Saban). Nick Saban coached under Bill Belichick in Cleveland. Both quarterbacks were labeled as game managers early in their careers, only to mature into stars at their position.

According to Miller, NFL insiders are higher on McCarron than the media.

While the debate over McCarron’s potential in the NFL will undoubtedly run all the way through April, right now, his stock is up.
