The ranking is based solely on performance during the 2013 season, and is based on how players performed in key games and clutch situations. Here is what ESPN had to say about McCarron:

The next player in our countdown should be plenty familiar with SEC fans. A three-year starter, he became the face of a program and a conference.

He went from a “game manager” to Heisman Trophy contender in the span of a season, ultimately finishing second to Jameis Winston in the award balloting.

Aj McCarron #5? Really? He was barely even a top 5 QB in the SEC

"He went from a “game manager” to Heisman Trophy contender in the span of a season"

He was actually a contender?
