While the decision of quarterbacks to throw at the Scouting Combine can be overblown, Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron has a reason beyond noble intentions.
McCarron said he’ll throw this weekend for scouts in Indianapolis primarily so he’ll get attention.
With Alabama’s pro day scheduled for the middle of March, coinciding with the beginning of free agency, McCarron said he wanted to be sure to get the attention of NFL evaluators.
He has some things to prove, as there are legitimate questions about his arm strength, and he skipped the Senior Bowl while rehabbing a shoulder injury. He’s admitted arm fatigue was a factor during last season, so he could help himself by showing the assembled NFL he’s well.
