Alabama’s A.J. McCarron isn’t often mentioned as one of the top quarterbacks in the 2014 NFL draft, but Nick Saban thinks he should be.

Saban, who won two national championships with McCarron as his quarterback, told Michele Steele on ESPN that the NFL teams that pass on McCarron will live to regret it.

“I think anybody that doesn’t take A.J. in one of those earlier rounds is going to make a huge mistake, because I think he’s going to be a very, very good player,” Saban said.
