The NFL draft is less than two months away and the time to impress the scouts is growing shorter. Alabama will host it’s annual pro-day Wednesday in Tuscaloosa. It’ll be more important than ever for the Tide players to perform – considering many were injured during the NFL combine last month.
Of the 14 former Bama players in action Wednesday, quarterback AJ McCarron will look to improve his numbers from the combine. The Mobile-native had a good throwing day in Indianapolis last month, but his numbers were far from “jumping off the page.” McCarron admitted that his 40 time was slow on twitter, which no doubt it was. A 4.94 just proves he’s a pocket passer; however, Tom Brady ran a “blistering fast” 5.28 seconds back in the day, so maybe McCarron is not in bad company.
AJ finished near the bottom for QB’s in the vertical jump at 28 inches and dead last in the broad jump at 99 inches.
Former Bama linebacker, C.J. Mosley, a Theodore-graduate, is projected to be drafted somewhere in the mid to late first round come may. There’s a good chance Mosley will be the Tide’s first pick of the draft.
