11. A.J. McCarron, Alabama
Winning back-to-back national championships as a starting quarterback is nothing to scoff at, which puts McCarron in exclusive company. Obviously, he played on great teams and was surrounded by serious amounts of talent. However, McCarron is Alabama’s all-time passing leader and single-season passing leader. He was also Heisman runner-up his senior season and threw just 15 interceptions over three full seasons as a starter against 77 career touchdown passes.
In the NFL, McCarron has struggled to establish himself, starting only three games, all of which came in 2015. He had a chance to win Buffalo’s starting job in 2018 but lost out in the preseason to Nathan Peterman and Josh Allen, in part because of an injury. He appears destined to be little more than a career backup.
