Greg McElroy
Round 7, Pick 208
Position: QB
Class:  5Sr
School: Alabama
Conference: Southeastern
HT: 6-2
WT: 220
40 Time: 4.84
Biography: "Two-year starter who passed for 70.9%/2987/20/5 as a senior after junior totals of 60.9%/2508/17/4, when he helped lead Alabama to a national title."

Positives: "Intelligent, high-percentage passer who makes proper decisions in the pocket. Displays tremendous poise, great field vision, and great overall awareness. Stands in against the rush, scans the field, and finds the open receiver. Sells ball fakes, throws with an over-the-top delivery, and passes with solid mechanics. Consistently looks away from covered receivers, rarely gets rattled and always in command of the situation. Spreads the ball around to all his receivers, puts touch on throws and very accurate. Correctly places passes so only his receivers can make the reception. Gets the ball through tight spots. Will take the sack rather than force the ball into covered receivers."

Negatives: Average arm strength and cannot power the ball into targets when necessary. Must put a lot of effort into passes to get extra speed on them. Does not always find the safety.

Analysis: "McElroy watched his game take off the past two years after winning the starting job for the Tide. He's a high percentage passer who throws with terrific accuracy yet lacks great arm strength for the next level. McElroy?s overall intangibles, field vision, and accuracy will make him a quality backup."

Projection: 6-7
