Notes:
Second Team All-SEC selection in 2012 and 2013 ... Heisman Trophy runner-up in 2013 ... Two-time BCS National Championship winner as a starter ... Only four losses in three seasons as a starter, all of which came to teams ranked in the top 15 ... Set Alabama's single-season passing yards record in 2013 (3,063), while throwing for 28 TDs ... Career completion percentage of .668 with just 15 interceptions in 1,026 attempts ... Used to running a pro-style offense at a high efficiency ... Remains calm in the pocket and goes through all of his progressions ... Very accurate on short routes with great anticipation ... Better than advertised arm strength ... Makes smart decisions ... Proven leader ... Played most of his career behind an NFL-caliber offensive line ... Doesn't deliver an accurate deep ball with much consistency ... Merely average athleticism.
