McElroy doesn't have the best arm, the quickest feet, or the fastest release, but he does have the smarts and decision making ability that most teams covet from their quarterbacks.
He nearly aced the Wonderlic test, scoring 48 out of a possible 50 points, by far the best in the class. He also proved during his career at Alabama that he was smart on the field as well, making smart throws and rarely turning the ball over.
In his two years as the starting quarterback, he threw 37 touchdowns to only nine interceptions, as well as a completion percentage of 60.9 and 70.9. Oh yeah, he also won a national championship.
In those 27 games, he threw more interceptions than touchdowns only twice, and this was against SEC defenses.
The Giants seem to like the qualities he possesses, ones that aren't exactly measurable at the combine, and have met with McElroy already and had him work out for them.
Seems to me they will try and get him if he is available in Round 6.
