For former Alabama gunslinger AJ McCarron, there may be a little waiting. The cerebral QB looks to be a late first-round or second-round pick by a team looking for value at the quarterback position. His career in college speaks for its self with two national titles.
In this year’s draft, the SEC could account for six of the top ten players taken.

Moncrief, due to his outstanding NFL combine workout, could get the call as early as the mid-second round — possibly by the Minnesota Vikings or Philadelphia Eagles.
Jeff Scott is hoping for a late-round bid or possibly a free-agent opportunity. The former Ole Miss scat back is rated 58 out of 171 of running backs by one scouting organization.
