Draft Scout Aaron Murray News
04/16/14 - Quarterback Aaron Murray still has some convincing to do after undergoing reconstructive knee surgery in late November. Even so, Murray believes he alleviated many potential concerns about his health after working out in front of 23 NFL teams at Georgia's pro day Wednesday. Murray said he felt "no limitations" despite wearing a brace on his left knee. Murray hopes that some scouts will recommend him as a second-round draft pick after his scripted workout that included 54 passes to several receivers on a windy, chilly morning. "We did a lot of throws on the run, left and right, to demonstrate my ability to cut off my leg and show everyone that I'm healthy," he said. "That way these teams don't have to worry about if they draft me that I'm going to have to sit out or anything like that."
Murray likewise understands that he could be the ninth quarterback taken and could fall into the fourth or fifth round. But Murray says that NFL teams are impressed with his resume at Georgia - 52 starts and Southeastern Conference career passing records for yards and touchdowns. In conversations with former Georgia stars A.J. Green, a Pro Bowl receiver with Cincinnati, and Matthew Stafford, the Detroit Lions' quarterback, Murray has been reassured that NFL teams value a successful career in the SEC. "Obviously it's not the NFL, but it's the closest thing to it when it comes to college football," Murray said. "That helps us after playing against these top (opponents) week in and week out, gets us ready for the NFL." - AP Sports
04/16/14 - 2014 Pro Days: QB Aaron Murray healthy, impressive in workout...With 23 NFL teams represented, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley, Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson and several others were in attendance to see Murray perform. At a hair under 6-1 and 207 pounds, Murray doesn't have the size NFL teams covet at the position, but similar to Russell Wilson, he grades above average with his mental development and natural intangibles to run an offense. He leaves Georgia as the most accomplished passer in school history, running a traditional under-center, pro-style offense with a lot of I-formation and NFL throws.
Murray lacks ideal physical traits with his size and arm strength, but he is an extremely detailed passer with his mechanics and movements, showing the decisions of a smart, seasoned veteran. He thrives with a clean pocket and clear sight lines, but it's a different story when pressured, lacking the escapability to routinely run away from pass rushers. Murray has strong football character traits with a coachable attitude and has even attracted some Russell Wilson comparisons. And when healthy, Murray's NFL floor is as a solid NFL backup, but that might also be his ceiling as the lack of physical tools might be too much to overcome. However, his positive workout on Wednesday only helped remind NFL teams how talented Murray is and it shouldn't surprise anyone if he is a top-100 pick on draft weekend. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
04/16/14 - 2014 Pro Days: QB Aaron Murray healthy, impressive in workout...For a prospect who was a four-year SEC starting quarterback and holds numerous school and conference passing records, Georgia's Aaron Murray still has a lot to prove. And on Wednesday at the school's on-campus pro day, he checked a lot of boxes for NFL scouts, most importantly throwing well with his surgically repaired knee. Murray completed 48 of 54 passes outside on the Bulldogs' practice fields, showing he could throw the entire route tree and that the knee injury wasn't a concern. He suffered a torn ACL in his left knee last November and rehabbed vigorously to be walking without crutches by the NFL combine and looked natural in his movements on Wednesday -- a remarkable recovery in less than five months. Murray's 54-pass script was run by former NFL quarterback coach, Terry Shea, and was designed to show a myriad of different throws with the former Bulldog quarterback moving, planting and showing full range of motion with his knee.
"I feel great right now," said Murray, who didn't participate in any of the agility drills like the 40-yard dash. "I feel no limitations with the knee. I think everyone today saw that between all the movement I was doing, the cutting, the sprinting. We put a lot of throws on the right, left, demonstrate my ability to cut off my leg and show everyone that I'm healthy. These teams don't have to worry about if they draft me, I'm going to have to sit out or something like that." - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
04/06/14 - Pro Days are wrapping up in advance of the 2014 NFL Draft and while most of the big names have already shown their stuff, there's still plenty of interesting teams and players on the docket. For instance, Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray. Murray's a special case because he tore his ACL in November while Georgia was playing Kentucky ... and is somehow going to throw at his UGA's April 16 pro day anyway. “He looks great,” Murray's agent Pat Dye told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I mean his body composition looks great, his knee looks great, he's moving around really well, he's not favoring it at all. His strength and conditioning coaches and his movement coaches down there say they've very rarely had anybody come through there with the kind work ethic, drive and passion that he has. He not only will he be able to give them a representative workout at Pro Day, but he'll be able to do all his drops and roll-outs. "He's not going to run the 40 or do any of the timed drills. There's no point in that. But he's throwing the ball great."
Murray is NFLDraftScout.com's 8th-ranked quarterback (and 141st overall player) and is projected to be drafted in the fourth or fifth round of May's draft. His stock obviously took a hit after suffering the ACL injury; some thought he could be mentioned among the top quarterbacks, although his size (6'1") is a concern. It's fantastic news that things are going well for the quarterback now, however. If he's as improved as Dye says, it could certainly spice up the draft a bit. “Everything's going great,” Dye said. “He wakes up every day trying to get better. Things look good. We've still got a little time. I think teams will be pretty shocked at what they see.” - Will Brinson, CBSSports.com
12/13/13 - Aaron Murray said Friday his recovery from knee surgery is going "extremely well" and he expects to participate in Georgia's pro day so he can show NFL teams he is "on the right track." Murray captured most of the Southeastern Conference's major passing records in four years as Georgia's quarterback before he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee against Kentucky on Nov. 23 and had surgery three days later.
Murray said Georgia director of sports medicine Ron Courson is supervising his rehabilitation. Murray said he plans to be ready to join Georgia's draft-eligible players when they work out for NFL coaches and scouts in April. "My goal is to be back for my pro day," Murray said. "We're going to push it back as far as possible. I was just talking with Ron and they really believe I'm going to be looking pretty good to go out there and do drops and roll-outs and run the 40 if I want to and things like that. That's my goal. I want to be ready for pro day."
Asked his chances to meet that goal, Murray said "very high." He said he was emotional when first told the ACL was torn but said he quickly moved on to preparing for the surgery and recovery. "I felt sorry for myself for about 20, 30 minutes at the stadium and then like I said, it was on to the next thing, figure out what we needed to do to get better, to heal up and get stronger and get going in the right direction," he said. - AP Sports
