With the No. 164 pick in the NFL draft, the Cincinnati Bengals selected Alabama QB A.J. McCarron.
He has good pocket presence, and possesses sufficient mobility to make the first tackler miss. He lacks the arm strength to make deep passes, instead he heaves the ball downfield. Accurate on short to medium passes. He is behind Andy Dalton, who may be allowed to move on depending on McCarron's development when his rookie contract expires. Essentially a game manager who needs a strong supporting cast to succeed.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
