Bio

      One of the biggest winners among QBs in college history, and also a multiple career-record holder at Alabama, McCarron joined 53-player roster late in 2014 after rehab from shoulder injury ... Looks for chance in 2015 to prove he should have rated higher than the ninth QB selected in 2014 Draft ... Posted a 36-4 record in three seasons as a Crimson Tide starter, leading national championship teams in 2011 and ’12 ... Set school records for TD passes (77), passing yards (9019) and completion percentage (66.9), and his INT percentage (1.46) is lowest in NCAA annals (15 INTs in 1026 attempts) ... Finished second in 2013 Heisman Trophy voting behind Florida State QB Jameis Winston.
