Draft Scout Aaron Murray News
11/29/13 - Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage planned to announce Monday that Georgia QB Aaron Murray was one of the confirmed players for the Senior Bowl, securing one of the coveted six quarterback spots. But Saturday in the Bulldogs' win over Kentucky, Murray suffered a gruesome injury to his left knee and on Sunday it was confirmed he'll need surgery to repair a torn ACL. Georgia's athletic department released a statement on Sunday: "Murray experienced minimal swelling and it was determined to proceed with the surgery this week, according to UGA Sr. Associate Athletic Director and Director of Sports Medicine Ron Courson."
The injury ends the most productive career in SEC history for a passer as Murray finishes with 13,166 passing yards and 121 touchdowns, both conference records. But with a rigorous rehab in his future, Murray will be shelved for the next few months, almost certainly keeping him from participating in the Senior Bowl (Jan. 25) or combine (Feb. 19-25). The injury shouldn't hurt his draft grade too badly, but Murray will miss out on some opportunities to convert some doubters during the pre-draft process. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
11/24/13 - Aaron Murray threw four first-half touchdown passes before hurting his left knee and missing the second half of his final home game as Georgia beat Kentucky 59-17 on Saturday night. Todd Gurley ran for 77 yards and had five catches for 90 yards, including touchdown receptions for 16 and 24 yards, for Georgia (7-4, 5-3 Southeastern Conference). Murray, already favoring the left knee, left the game after he was hit by defensive end Za'Darius Smith following a pass that was intercepted by Khalid Henderson with 2:17 remaining in the half.
Murray was unable to put pressure on his left leg as he was helped off the field and taken to the Georgia locker room. Georgia announced Murray was taken to an Athens hospital to have a MRI on the knee. Hutson Mason, who replaced Murray, threw and ran for touchdowns. Kentucky (2-8, 0-7) lost its 15th straight SEC game. The Wildcats must beat Tennessee next week to avoid their second straight 0-8 finish in the conference. - AP Sports
11/24/13 - Georgia QB Murray having ACL surgery...The University of Georgia confirmed Sunday that senior quarterback Aaron Murray will have ACL surgery on his left knee. Murray was injured during Saturday's 59-17 blowout win over Kentucky. The school announced that since swelling in Murray's knee was minimal, he will have surgery Tuesday instead of waiting the typical two weeks. Murray's mother, Lauren Murray, earlier in the day posted an announcement on Facebook that he would have season-ending surgery. Murray did not confirm what his mother posted but wrote on Twitter: "Thank you for all the prayers over the past few hours. Gonna come back stronger than ever! Dawg for life. Truly love you all #GoDawgs"
Murray finishes his collegiate career as the SEC's all-time leading passer with 13,166 yards with 121 touchdowns. He started 52 straight games for the Bulldogs and nearly led them to a national championship in 2012, falling just short to Alabama. Murray opted to return for his senior season instead of the NFL draft. He completed nearly 65 percent of his passes with 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions, but Georgia is just 7-4 with one game left at Georgia Tech. - The Sports Xchange
11/09/13 - Aaron Murray threw two touchdown passes to set the SEC career record, and Georgia broke open a close game with a dominant second half to beat Appalachian State 45-6 Saturday. Todd Gurley, J.J. Green and Brendan Douglas ran for touchdowns as Georgia (6-3) outscored the Mountaineers 31-0 in the second half after leading only 14-6 at halftime. Appalachian State (2-8) reached eight losses for the first time since a 3-8 finish in 1979. The Mountaineers, in their last season as a FCS team, are moving to the Sun Belt Conference in 2014.
Murray completed 19 of 26 passes for 281 yards with touchdown passes to Rantavious Wooten and Michael Bennett. He threw one interception. Hutson Mason took over in the fourth quarter and threw a 3-yard scoring pass to Kenneth Towns. Murray began the day one touchdown pass behind Danny Wuerffel's Southeastern Conference record of 114 at Florida from 1993-96. - AP Sports
10/08/13 - Georgia's Aaron Murray entered this season needing a big senior year to help show pro scouts that he has the skills for the next level. The Bulldogs' signal caller became the SEC's career leader in passing yards over the weekend and has an impressive resume, but at the end of the day, his lack of ideal size and arm strength will be tough for teams to overlook. However, when I gauged the interest in Murray from some around the league, one response from an AFC scout stood out: “He's limited, but I like him a lot better than Kirk Cousins. Kid was born to play quarterback.” Murray is expected to test well on the chalkboard and has the intangibles that evaluators seek at the position. But will that be enough to overlook the mediocre physical traits? For most, probably not. But all it takes is that one team. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
