Is AJ McCarron an NFL starter?

AJ McCarron's stellar college career came to a close Thursday night at the Sugar Bowl, where things ended uncharacteristically (read: with a loss) for the Heisman Trophy runner-up. Now it's on to the NFL, where McCarron isn't expected to be a star -- at least not right away. While Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles and SEC rival Johnny Manziel are expected to go at the top of the draft, the two-time national championship-winning starter isn't seen as a first-rounder. Will he overcome his iffy projection to succeed in the pros?
