Draft Scout Aaron Murray News
05/04/13 - 2014 NFL DRAFT: EARLY TOP-50 DRAFT BOARD: 42. QB Aaron Murray, Georgia (6-1, 212, 4.76)...The school record-holder for career touchdown passes (95), Murray has some Drew Brees to him but too often folds on the big stage. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/06/13 - Breathe easier, Georgia fans. Quarterback Aaron Murray had a special message to deliver via Twitter on Sunday evening. Blessed to be the QB for the Dawgs, not ready to leave just yet. Time to get back to work & help lead this team to a championship #GoDawgs...Yes, instead of entering the NFL Draft, Murray will be returning to Georgia for his senior season. Murray had been projected as a possible second-round draft pick in this spring's draft. Instead he'll be remaining in Athens and trying to bring a national title to Georgia.
Murray threw for 3,893 yards, 36 touchdowns and 10 interceptions for Georgia this season, as the Bulldogs finished just a few yards shy of winning the SEC and moving on to the BCS National Championship Game. In his three seasons as a starter for Georgia, Murray has thrown for 10,091 yards and 95 touchdowns, leading Georgia to a record of 28-13.
Murray also finds himself first, second and third in the Georgia record books for yards passing in a single season. He's currently third all-time in career passing yards, but barring injury, won't have much problem passing David Greene and Eric Zeier next season. His 95 touchdown passes are already the most in Georgia history. - Tom Fornelli, CBSSports.com
01/06/13 - Aaron Murray, one of the few underclassmen in position to bolster a weak senior class of quarterbacks, has elected instead to return to the University of Georgia. Rather than have the school set up a press conference, Murray made his decision via Twitter, announcing that "he's not ready to leave just yet." Coming off an MVP performance in a Capital One Bowl victory over Nebraska in which he tied the school record with five passing touchdowns, some had questioned what the 6-1, 212 pound passer could gain in returning for his senior season in the ultra-physical SEC.
Murray completed 64.5% of his passes for 3,893 yards and 36 touchdowns against just 10 interceptions for the year. In 41 career games, he's thrown for roughly a 3-1 TD to INT ratio (95-32) against a high caliber of competition.
In doing so, Murray had ascended to the No. 4 standing in NFLDraftScout.com's quarterback rankings for the 2013 draft, and the top underclassman. Despite less than ideal size, Murray possesses many of the other traits talent evaluators look for in a franchise quarterback. Murray has a strong arm, has shown the ability to throw with touch, precision and velocity and is both mobile and tough.
In returning to Georgia, however, Murray currently ranks as NFLDraftScout.com's top quarterback in the class of 2014. It is hard to question Murray's decision considering how similar choices by Andrew Luck, Jake Locker, Christian Ponder, and Matt Ryan over the past five years have paid off. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/01/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: QB Aaron Murray has put together another strong season for Georgia. The fourth-year junior has passed for 3,466 yards with 31 TDs and eight interceptions. He passed for his 90th career TD in the SEC title game loss to Alabama, passing Peyton Manning (89) for second on the all-time SEC TD passing list. - The Sports Xchange
01/01/13 - Aaron Murray passed for 427 yards and five touchdowns, and No. 7 Georgia rallied for a 45-31 victory over No. 16 Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl on Tuesday at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium. Murray, a junior quarterback, was 18-of-33 and threw touchdown passes on three of four possessions in the second half, as Georgia (12-2) wiped out a 31-23 deficit against the nation's No. 1 passing defense.
Nebraska entered the game allowing 148.2 passing yards a game, the best mark in the nation. But Murray, who was spot-on on his deep ball, threw touchdown passes of 29, 75, 49, 24 and 87 yards. The last one came when Chris Conley caught a short screen pass for a couple of yards and ran the rest of the way, with no defenders within 20 yards of him. The touchdown with 11:03 remaining was the longest passing play in Georgia bowl history, and the longest ever in the Capital One Bowl.
Nebraska (10-4) entered the game on heels of an embarrassing 70-31 loss to Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game, when the Badgers ran for 539 yards and didn't attempt a pass in the second half. Georgia, though, did most of its damage through the air, although freshmen running backs Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall combined to run for 161 yards. - The Sports Xchange
