Alabama quarterback AJ McCaron appeared on Fox's Crowd Goes Wild yesterday and went about comparing himself to the New England Patriots' QB Tom Brady. 

The two do have similarities, with the Crimson Tide QB having won two national titles in College Football and heading into the NFL underrated at this position.

Brady himself was very much underrated at went in the sixth round of his NFL Draft. However, he has gone on to play in five Super Bowls, winning three.   

When McCaron was asked 'who do you look at and say I can do that', he explained. 

"I hate trying to compare because everyone has a different style. But on similarities, I think I'm similar to Tom Brady and how he plays his game.

"I think that's the area I have my edges on the mental side of the ball game. Taking advantages of breaking down film, and knowing what tendencies defensives have.

"Also, coming out of college he was underrated a pretty good bit too. A lot of teams passed on him and he turned out pretty good. 

"I think I probably stack up to him best. I don't like being boastful about myself, all I'll say is that if you take a chance on me good things will come out of it."

Meanwhile, McCaron also gave his views on whether College Football players should be paid for their efforts on the field. 

"I truly believe at some point in the future College athletes should be paid," he added.

"The NCAA is not a bad organisation, but in some way they are taking advantage of college athletes.

"The revenue they get is absurd money, and players should see some of the money for jerseys and video game rights."
