Former Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron claims he’s been told that he get drafted as high as the 16th overall pick in the first round.
“They felt like I could go anywhere from 16-35,” McCarron told the Paul Finebaum radio show. “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.”
Matt Miller of Bleacher Report doesn’t believe McCarron deserves to go that high.
*Could* A.J. McCarron be drafted as high as No. 16 overall? Yes. *Should* he be? No.
