Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray had his collegiate career cut short by a very disappointing knee injury back in November of 2013, but that won’t delay the start of his NFL career.
Murray suffered a torn ACL, but is on schedule to perform for scouts at the Georgia Bulldogs pro day on April 16th, telling Yahoo! Sports’ Eric Edholm that he will do ‘everything’ and ‘even backflips to follow’ (jokingly).
For me, this is one of the toughest guys in the draft to figure out. There were times earlier in his college career that people thought Murray would be one of the top quarterbacks picked whenever he came out, but the further along he came, the more people picked into his skill set, size, and potential, and now with this knee injury he’s not expected to be picked before day three.
He will certainly be one of the most intriguing day three picks, especially after proving in his college career how productive he can be.
There are times when Murray makes bad decisions but certainly he has some talent, and will be an intriguing developmental project for someone to undertake.
The fact that he’s coming back this early from a major knee injury is remarkable, so it’ll be interesting to see how he moves around at the Georgia Pro Day, obviously far ahead of schedule.
