Draft fact: A.J. McCarron's accuracy

April, 28, 2014
The Baltimore Ravens showed their interest in A.J. McCarron by bringing in the Alabama quarterback for a pre-draft visit.

While McCarron doesn't have an arm that is even close to Joe Flacco's cannon, his accuracy is what makes him an intriguing option at the next level.

Here are some numbers to note:

10 -- Interceptions on 650 pass attempts over the last two seasons. His 1.5 percent interception rate trailed only Derek Carr, Marcus Mariota and Teddy Bridgewater among quarterbacks with at least 15 starts the last two seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

19 -- Drops by Alabama receivers last season, according to STATS, Inc. That was the sixth-highest mark among SEC quarterbacks.

64 -- Percent completion rate against blitzes last season, per ESPN Stats & Info. He threw 16 touchdowns and two interceptions when defenses sent five or more rushers.

291 -- Passes without an interception over the 2011 and 2012 seasons. That's an Alabama school record.
