The Cowboys are showing some interest in Georgia's Aaron Murray, reports ESPN.com.
"However, it doesn’t mean the Cowboys won’t look at some quarterbacks," notes beat writer Calvin Watkins. Dallas team officials, including QB coach Wade Wilson, were in Athens, Ga. Wednesday to take in Georgia's pro day workout. The team doesn't expect to carry more than three QBs and already has Tony Romo, Kyle Orton and Brandon Weeden, but Watkins writes that Orton's contract is expected to be voided after next season and the squad wants to do its due diligence. ESPN’s Jon Gruden likes Murray's deep-ball accuracy and touch on the ball, and says he will be a "steal for somebody" in the draft. Apr 16 - 6:59 PM

Aaron Murray (ACL) threw 52-of-54 catchable balls at Georgia’s pro day on Wednesday, but NFL.com's Gil Brandt noted that "toward the end of the workout it appeared as if his arm got tired."

Murray's surgically-repaired knee "looked stable" in front of reps from 20 NFL teams. Included in that bunch were the QB coaches from the Cowboys, Jaguars, Chiefs, Saints and Rams. Interestingly, Jacksonville also sent its head coach (Gus Bradley) and general manager (David Caldwell), while St. Louis dispatched director of player personnel Taylor Morton. Brandt did clarify that, despite the fatigue, Murray looked good. "He’s a not-get-too-high or not-get-too-low type of player," the analyst wrote. "If there’s a run on quarterbacks in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, he could wind up being selected in that round."

NFL.com's Charles Davis wrote that he would begin considering selecting Georgia's Aaron Murray in the second round.

"Due to a late-season knee injury that kept him out of the postseason all-star games and the NFL Scouting Combine and has limited him in individual workouts, Murray has been below the radar," Davis wrote. "Some are leery of his height (below 6-foot-1). Others question his arm strength. I see a 52-game starter in the SEC who left as the all-time leader in passing yardage, with 121 touchdowns, and got better every year. On film, I see plenty of wide-field throws as well as numerous downfield shots taken (and completed). Tough, competitive, smart (two-time Academic All America). Let the word get out: Aaron Murray is a QB to be considered. Strongly." Murray's agent Pat Dye, Jr. has heard from "dozens" of NFL teams about his client. The signal-caller will throw at the Bulldogs' pro day on Wednesday after undergoing ACL surgery in November.

NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock says Georgia's Aaron Murray is as accurate as any QB in the 2014 class.

"This kid gets it," Mayock said. "He's as accurate as any quarterback in the draft is. ... I really like the kid. I've got to do some more homework on him, because he's kind of changing my perception right now." The analyst said that the more tape he watched of Murray, the more that he liked him. Murray, of course, is the all-time SEC record holder in passing yards (13,166) and TD passes (121). Murray's agent Pat Dye, Jr. said last month that the signal caller has garnered interest from Cincinnati, Jacksonville, Arizona, Minnesota, New Orleans, St. Louis, Cleveland, Houston, Dallas, Oakland, Tennessee and Kansas City. Over the weekend, Dye said "dozens" of NFL teams have contacted him about his client.

Georgia QB Aaron Murray will throw at the Bulldogs' pro day on April 16.

The Bulldogs' signal-caller tore his ACL less than five months ago. "He looks great," Murray's agent Pat Dye Jr. said. "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 of work ethic, drive and passion that he has." Murray is only wearing a light knee brace at this point. Dye added that "dozens" of NFL teams have contacted him about his client.

ESPN's Kevin Weidl writes that Georgia QB Aaron Murray possesses a "below average skill set with everything you want above the shoulders."

"Murray has strong field presence, a great understanding for situational football and has brass as a competitor. Very good facilitator," Weidl wrote after completing a film evaluation. "Murray will have limitations, will only fit in certain systems. To his credit though he maximizes everything he has in the tank physically." Murray is the all-time SEC record holder in passing yards (13,166) and TD passes (121). Pat Dye, Jr., Murray’s agent, said last week that the signal caller has garnered interest from the following teams: Cincinnati, Jacksonville, Arizona, Minnesota, New Orleans, St. Louis, Cleveland, Houston, Dallas, Oakland, Tennessee and Kansas City.

NFL Media analyst Charles Davis believes Georgia QB Aaron Murray could be an alternate option in the third round for the Houston Texans.

"I don't think the third round is too early to consider Murray. He creeps into the conversation more and more when you look at his overall production at Georgia -- he left the school as the SEC record holder in passing yards (13,166) and TD passes (121). He has great experience as a four-year starter in the SEC, and improved throughout his career. He's capable of surprising people at the next level," Davis wrote. Even though Murray is coming off an ACL injury, his name continues to generate some buzz. Murray doesn't have the ideal size or arm strength, but could take advantage of his accuracy, ball placement, and his ability to throw on the move. In the right system Murray could a very good developmental project at the next level.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Wednesday that 12 teams have expressed interest in Georgia QB Aaron Murray.

Murray is currently in Phoenix preparing for Georgia’s pro day on April 16. Pat Dye, Jr., Murray’s agent, said the signal caller has garnered interest from the following teams: Cincinnati, Jacksonville, Arizona, Minnesota, New Orleans, St. Louis, Cleveland, Houston, Dallas, Oakland, Tennessee and Kansas City. "There’s just a real positive buzz about Aaron with the teams," Dye said. "He’s well ahead of schedule [from ACL surgery in November] and he should be fine to start training camp or at some point during training camp. Whether if that’s the first day or two weeks into it. Aaron swears he’ll be ready by training camp, a full go."

Georgia QB Aaron Murray has a "hot name" in scouting circles, says ESPN's Todd McShay.

"He showed toughness this year, he can handle pressure," McShay said. "He doesn't have great size, he has marginal arm strength, but in the right system, a Sean Payton system, he can have success and be a really good backup, and who knows, one day could maybe be a starter." Murray, progressing well from ACL surgery in November, is hopeful he will be able to work out at Georgia’s pro day on April 16.

Scout Inc.'s Kevin Weidl cautions teams from the AFC East, AFC North and NFC North from drafting Georgia QB Aaron Murray.

The thinking is that, because Murray's lackluster size will give him trouble in collapsing pockets and his noodle won't compensate, he shouldn't regularly be playing in inclement weather. "Murray’s best chance at developing and maximizing his skill set will come if he is able to team up with a creative offensive mind, like a Sean Payton in New Orleans, who relies on quick decision-making and getting the ball out in a timely manner," wrote Weidl. Murray, progressing well from ACL surgery in November, is hopeful he will be able to work out at Georgia’s pro day on April 16.

NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger says Georgia QB Aaron Murray will have the best career of any signal caller in the 2014 class.

"I like Manziel, but I think he's going to get hurt," said Baldinger. "I think Bridgewater is going to go to a bad team. I think he's the best quarterback right now, but the question was, who is going to have the best career. I just think a guy like Aaron is probably going to go to a team where they may not need a quarterback (immediately). Where he goes, there may be no pressure." Murray, a four-year starter at Georgia, owns SEC records for passing yardage (13,166) and completions (921). The 6-foot, 207-pound Murray, who suffered a torn ACL in November, is a likely Day 3 pick. "Most of the great quarterbacks in this league right now, whether it's Manning, Rivers or Brees, they played a lot of college games," Baldinger said. "And this guy played as many as anybody in the country. ... When I watch him, he looks as good as anybody. He's got a good arm, he snaps the ball off, he's smart. He's probably going to get underdrafted."

NFL Films' Greg Cosell says the problem with Georgia QB Aaron Murray is his size, lack of arm strength, and confinement to the pocket.

Cosell added that Murray's arm is better than AJ McCarron's. The analyst mused at one point about Murray's ability to turn into another Drew Brees. "Brees is the exception," Cosell said. "Normally, 6-foot pocket quarterbacks without great feet, who do not have big arms, do not become quality NFL starters." The 6-foot, 207-pound Murray suffered a torn ACL in November, so he's facing even greater odds than most.

The Dayton Daily News reported that the Bengals could have legitimate interest in Georgia QB Aaron Murray, who interviewed with the Bengals at the Combine.

"I’ll play anywhere, but the chance to get to play with A.J. (Green) again would be incredible," Murray said. "He’s an unbelievable receiver and one of the best in the NFL. We had a good relationship and chemistry in college, so it would be nice to hook up with him again." At Georgia Murray connected with AJ Green for nine touchdowns during their 2010 season. At the moment, the Bengals are currently looking to bring in someone to groom behind Andy Dalton. The 6-foot, 207-pound Murray suffered a torn ACL in November, but believes he should be ready for his Pro Day on March 16th. The Bengals new-look West Coast offense could be a fit for Murray's skill set.
Mar 5 - 1:27 PM

Georgia QB Aaron Murray expects to fully participate at the school's pro day on April 16.

Murray joked that he will even perform backflips "just to show off." The quarterback suffered a torn ACL back in November but has consistently said he is "way ahead of schedule." Don't expect him to draw more than a third day selection, however.

Former NFL scout Russ Lande believes Georgia's Aaron Murray could be a second day QB option for the Jaguars.

"General Manager David Caldwell learned under Bill Polian and Thomas Dimitroff, who both place a ton of emphasis on film evaluation and college production," Lande writes. GM Dave Caldwell noted the team has a pretty good idea of who their top 5 prospects will be, but he is open to trading away from the No. 3 pick. Lande adds "there is some sentiment around the league that the Jaguars would prefer to select a pass rusher in the first round," leading to a quarterback selection on the second day. The Seattle Seahawks recently took the same strategy, but it is not a common practice.
