Greg McElroy
Greg McElroy - Alabama (HT: 6-1⅟ - WT: 220)
Combine 40: 4.87 - Pro Day 40: N/A - Position Rank: 9 of 20

Positives: True game manager... High football IQ... Very intelligent player and person, was a finalist for a Rhodes Scholarship, is currently working on his master's degree and scored a 43 on the Wonderlic test... Played in a pro-style offense that should translate well to the NFL... A winner; has lost only three games that he has started since eighth grade... Efficient player; makes good decisions... Shows good poise in the pocket, steps into pressure and isn't afraid to throw while getting hit... Decent arm strength, can make most NFL throws... Solid bulk... Teammates react well to him in high pressure situations. .. Really took his game to the next level as a senior, made defenses respect the pass.

Negatives: Long release allows defenders to jump his passes... Holds the ball too long, takes far too many sacks, needs to get rid of the ball quicker... Below-average athlete... Low ceiling, physical ability is limited... Was not asked to throw a ton and had arguably the best running back tandem in the country to rely on to pull safeties towards the line of scrimmage at Alabama... Will throw off his back foot under pressure.
