Draft Scout Aaron Murray News
05/12/14 - Chiefs like how they helped roster depth in draft...Then in the sixth round they grabbed guard Zach Fulton out of Tennessee and with their final selection, No. 200 in the draft, they picked offensive tackle Laurent Duvernay-Tardif from McGill University in Canada. A third-year medical school student, LDT gained attention from the NFL with his performance in last January's East-West Shrine Game. Dorsey stayed true to his draft board, and did not use a choice to fill what are perceived to be the two biggest holes in the Chiefs roster right now: wide receiver and free safety. Second-round choice Phillip Gaines could play on the back line, but he was drafted as a cornerback. Thomas caught 113 passes in that wide-open Oregon offense in his three seasons and could fill the slot receiver role vacated by McCluster.
Murray will compete for the No. 3 spot at quarterback with backup Chase Daniel and last year's No. 3 Tyler Bray. He likes the situation. "It's just a perfect fit," Murray said. "They run a similar scheme that I ran at Georgia. (Andy Reid) does a tremendous job at developing quarterbacks. It's a great fit. I'm not complaining one bit." - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - Chiefs like how they helped roster depth in draft...In the fifth round, they drafted only the fourth quarterback by Kansas City since 1998 in grabbing Georgia's Aaron Murray. A late season torn ACL and knee surgery kept him from finishing up a very productive career with the Bulldogs, but he says he's ready for full participation in the offseason program. "This was a chance to get a really quality quarterback at that position and we went with what the board gave us," said Dorsey. "He was the best player on the board at the time. He is a winner. The bottom line is he's been a winner at every stage of his career. When there are big drives that need to be made at the end of the game, he makes those drives. They didn't always win them, but he made the drives that put them in a position to win." - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Chiefs' picks: Round 5/163 - Aaron Murray, QB, 6-0, 200, Georgia...Through different general managers, coaches, coordinators and other decision-makers, the Chiefs have not been an active participant in drafting quarterbacks. Including the 1998 selection meeting, Kansas City picked three quarterbacks in 16 drafts. Murray is the most gifted and experienced college quarterback the franchise has drafted since 1983 when they made Todd Blackledge the No. 7 pick in the first round. A torn ACL and surgery put an early end to Murray's career with the Bulldogs, but he moved on as the all-time touchdown passer in the SEC with 121 scores over his four-year, 52-game starting career. - The Sports Xchange
05/07/14 - Five players who should be on the Jacksonville Jaguars' draft radar...QB Aaron Murray, Georgia: Due to his time in Seattle, Bradley may be more willing than most to gamble on a short quarterback like Murray. Other than size, Murray possesses many of the attributes necessary for success in the NFL. He completed 62.3 percent of his passes over his career for 13,166 yards and nearly three times as many touchdowns (121) as interceptions (41) in a pro-style offense against elite competition. He showed incredible commitment by working his way back from an ACL tear to throw at Georgia's Pro Day and impressed in attending the Senior Bowl despite being unable to play. Further, Murray's accuracy and underrated blend of velocity and mobility would make him an attractive fit in offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch's scheme. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
05/06/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Quarterbacks: Aaron Murray, Georgia, 6-1, 207, 4.84...Murray is physically and mentally tough, commands respect. Nice over-the-top passing motion. Coming back from November ACL surgery. Some scouts compare him to similarly sized Drew Brees. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
