While Alabama's defense certainly deserves plenty of the blame for the surprising loss to underdog Oklahoma, senior quarterback AJ McCarron and star junior left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio's poor performances raised red flags with scouts.
From an NFL perspective, did the committees make the right choices? Which award winner will ultimately be selected first in 2014? Who will be selected last? Does Jameis Winston winning the Heisman bode well for his chances at the No. 1 overall pick next year?
Fans will point out that McCarron's stats were impressive in the loss. Critics, however, will point to a handful of late and inaccurate passes from the senior quarterback as evidence of his limitations as an NFL prospect.
