Greg McElroy   # QB

Height: 6-2   Weight: 225   Age: 26

Born: 5/10/1988 Los Angeles , CA

College: Alabama

Experience: 3rd season

High School: Carroll HS [Southlake, TX]









Draft 2011

Pick No.208

Selected By: New York Jets

Round: 7

Pick (Overall): 5 (208)

Pick Analysis: McElroy could quickly emerge as a quality backup NFL quarterback but does not possess the physical attributes of a starter. Fully grasps the mental side of the game and has succeeded in multiple pressure-packed situations but simply does not have the arm strength to force and NFL defense to defend the entire field. Comfortable making NFL-type reads, accurate when hitting short to intermediate targets, and capable of moving around in the pocket. However, we don't expect him to be able to hit the deep out or zip the ball into tight coverage at the next level, so McElroy carries a late Day 3 grade.
