Greg McElroy Scouting Report

Greg McElroy QB Alabama #12

Ht: 6’2

Wt: 225

Adequate height and overall size. A team leader on and off the field. Very intelligent quarterback – and a smart kid off the field too. Smart with the football; knows the limits of his talents and won’t force balls where he can’t fit them. Decent arm strength. Decent accuracy.
Limited mobility; is not a threat to run with the football. Nothing special about him – essentially no upside.
McElroy is your classic backup quarterback. He’s smart – on and off the field – and the ideal guy to have on your bench. In a pinch, you can throw him onto the field and he won’t miss beat. Unfortunately, the talent level just isn’t there to project him as a future starter. He shouldn’t be drafted with hopes of developing him into a starter, but he should have no problem making a roster and staying in the league as a quality backup.
