Savage on A.J. McCarron’s Draft Prospects

Alabama radio network color analyst Phil Savage weighs in on A.J. McCarron’s draft prospects:

“I think for AJ, at least from my own NFL perspective, if he can go back and really improve in certain areas — everybody’s going to be focused on the winning and the national championships — but from an individual standpoint … really improve some things and make some plays under duress, I think he certainly ends up being a real option for people.

“The other thing I would say is that he weighed 204 pounds at the spring pro day, and obviously in that league he needs to add some weight in terms of … taking the hits, of surviving in the pocket.”

I seriously hope he doesn’t have to learn how to survive in the pocket this year.
