It's silly season right now, a time when the NFL world is covered in smoke. Anything you hear is a lie, whether you're a media member, fan or even a player. So take what A.J. McCarron was told by teams with a grain of salt.

McCarron, appearing on the Paul Finebaum Show, said teams told him he'd go between 16 and 35 in the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft.

"They felt like I could go anywhere from 16-35," McCarron said. "I believe that, too. At the same time, I don't have my hopes set on anything. Whatever happens, happens. It's a blessing for me to even be in this situation."

McCarron's quote is particularly hilarious because he said he believes it ... and then promptly went on to say that teams lie all the time and you can't believe what you hear.

"It's not like the GMs are calling these guys and telling them, 'Hey, we're going to draft this guy at this number so go ahead and put that out there,'" McCarron said. "One thing I've learned about this whole process, it's nothing but a big secret.
