AJ McCarron lied about being a first round draft pick

There have been plenty of articles recently that Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron could well be working his way up into the late-first round in next week’s draft 2014 NFL Draft.

All those reports mainly came from McCarron himself telling members of the media that teams are saying he is set to go so high whilst only being predicted to go in the 3rd round and later.

While McCarron isn't a terrible player and does boast some discernible talent, an article from Pro Football Talk states that ”multiple scouts are befuddled” about McCarron being told he is a first-round talent.

Which makes this look an awful lot like the Crimson Tide play-caller is lying to media outlets about just how good he is.

There's a difference between being confident about how good you are and thinking how high you should be picked, and insisting that you're being consistently told by multiple teams that he is a first round talent that could go number 16.

This all seems like a play from the  QB to get a team to jump high on him, but it could well come back to bite the tattooed quarterback come draft day, when he finds himself still without a team come day 3.
