The NFL Combine may be the perfect chance for a player to show off his skills but sometimes quarterbacks decide not to throw. Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron almost needs to throw or he will be overlooked.
McCarron said he’ll throw this weekend for scouts in Indianapolis mainly 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 still has a lot to prove, as there are legitimate questions about his arm strength. He skipped the Senior Bowl while rehabbing a shoulder injury and he previously admitted that arm fatigue was a factor during last season.
Throwing in the Combine would only help him and the image he wants to portray as a potential NFL QB.
