ROUNDS 4-7

Saturday, May 10, 12pm ET/11am CT - ESPN & NFL Network

AJ McCarron, quarterback - There are reports that AJ was less than eloquent in his interviews with NFL teams. Additionally, his claims that he would be a first rounder did not sit too well either. This could explain his slide to day three of the NFL Draft. Pick 24, Round 5 (164) Bengals

All of the following is a cut & paste from a previous post and still applies:

Kevin Norwood, wide receiver - I don't have to tell Tide fans what Norwood has meant to the program the last few years. As a dependable clutch receiver with good hands and size, some lucky team could take a chance on him as early as the third round but most likely he goes in the fourth. Pick 23, Round 4 (123) Seahawks

Adrian Hubbard, outside linebacker - He has good size (6'6"/257) that the NFL loves. At times at Bama he showed flashes of greatness but wasn't consistent enough. He will have to work on his speed but look for his name to be called in the late fourth or more likely in the fifth.

Anthony Steen, offensive guard - He may not look the part of an NFL offensive lineman but his hard work and toughness make him worth a look in the late fifth or sixth round.

Ed Stinson, defensive end - Ed is a big powerful man with good motor. He will have to work on his speed and explosiveness to make a real impact. He should be a good piece for a team looking for depth around the late fifth or sixth round. Pick 20, Round 5 (160) Cardinals

Vinnie Sunseri, strong safety - I am still in shock that he left college early. That said, he has a chance to be a nice piece for a team that needs a hard-worker who is not afraid to knock heads. Being a coach's kid adds to his football IQ. Believe it or not, he could go in the sixth round if he has proved himself healthy. Pick 27, Round 5 (167) Saints

Jeoffrey Pagan, defensive end - The potential is there for him to blossom into a star. How hard will he work to get there? He probably should've stayed at Bama another year and build towards a big senior year. Sixth round, maybe seventh. Pick 1, Round 6 (177) Texans

Deion Belue, cornerback - He will probably have to get healthy and prove himself on special teams before he sees time in nickel and dime packages. That said, he should get a call in the seventh or possibly maybe the sixth. At the very least, he will get many offers as a free agent.

Cody Mandell, punter - Only elite can't-miss punters tend to get drafted higher than seventh. If there is a team that has had a great draft and gotten everyone they wanted, they could take him in the seventh. If he is not drafted, he will be a "priority free agent" with many suitors. UFA: Cowboys

John Fulton, cornerback  - although Fulton had a rocky career at Bama, he is a good athlete and excelled at special teams. I expect him to get a free-agent offer from someone. Whether he sticks as a special teams player or on a practice squad may be up to how hard he wants to work but the opportunity is there. UFA: Eagles
