Alabama QB McElroy shakes off injury concerns

Published on April 6, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Alabama QB Greg McElroy demonstrated that he has recovered well from a fracture in his throwing hand, tossing 50 passes to teammate Earl Alexander and South Alabama WR Courtney Smith on Tuesday at a makeup for the Crimson Tide’s March 9 pro day.

McElroy, who injured his hand at the Under Armour Senior Bowl on Jan. 29, was joined by Alabama TE Preston Dial, who missed the orginal pro day while recovering from a sports hernia.

Only two Seattle Seahawks scouts were on hand for the event, which was taped. Footage of the workout will be distributed to all 32 NFL teams.

“I think I threw the ball well,” McElroy told The Birmingham News following the workout. “I thought I was pretty accurate. It had good pop on it. The drop felt good. Accuracy-wise, I thought we were pretty dang good.”

McElroy, who began throwing again two and a half weeks ago, said he’s still regaining his arm strength.

“I feel like I have good command,” McElroy told the newspaper. “It doesn’t take long. I’ve been doing this my whole life. Am I perfect right now? No. Accuracy-wise is good. Arm strength is good. It’s just the fatigue. My arm gets pretty tired. I don’t have a lot of longevity I would have during the season.”

According to NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora, McElroy has impressed scouts with his composure and intelligence. While he’s not as physically gifted as others at his position, McElroy has the intangibles that teams covet. He could stick around in the league for a long time as a valuable backup, able to start when needed and help others learn and digest an offensive system.
