Default Re: Aaron Murray QB Georgia

Thanks for the update Nate on Murrays Pro Day. I mocked him to the Texans in the 2nd round back in Oct. of last year, pre-injury, and really like Murray. With the injury I think he'd have to be a heavy consideration in the 3rd round if his rehab is going well and if we haven't already filled the QB position, and a definite pick in the 4th if he's still there.

I still like Aaron Murray, wouldn't mind if we drafted him in the second.

I like him to, but do you think we need to use our 2 round pick to get him ?

I like guys that show toughness and put their body on the line late in important games, but I don't want a guy that's doing that every other play. Pretty big difference there.

Who knows. I wouldn't expect to need to draft Murray until the 3rd, maybe 4th. But now people are mocking him in the 2nd so... I don't know.

Hopefully, Smith and OB have a better estimate of where these guys are going to be drafted than I do.

With the depth of this draft many good players will fall a little. I think we could easily get Murray in the 3rd round. Also I'm thinking that a trade down is coming in either the 1st or 2nd rounds and possibly in both so there should be some extra 2nd-4th round picks. Our late round comp. picks also free us up to use our own late round picks to trade up in the mid rounds or get an extra pick. With extra mid round picks, I really wouldn't mind if the Texans picked up 2 mid round QB's to double our chances of hitting on someone.

Well that's a bit of a change from what he was saying 2 months ago. Interesting that his opinion has changed so drastically in 2 months when zero games have been played.

2 months ago

I think Murry is a real sleeper as O'Brien's target QB. I mean I wouldn't be surprised if he's not high on O'Briens list, but neither would I be if he is.
But this kid is known to be very cerebral, he's not got a real strong arm but it's strong enough and he's got good accuracy. And he has a big-time work ethic and IS a multi year starter in the SEC. We'll see soon.

I like Murray. He's a tough kid who maximizes his talent. But I think he's closer to David Greene than he is to Matt Stafford.

I like both Murray & Manziel. I'd take Murray before many of the other QBs talked about this go 'round. & I like Manziel, I think he's got the ability to be a franchise QB in this league.

But I'd sign a guy off the street if I had to, to keep from having to start JFF day 1.

If by some chance I had 4 qBs make the team ahead of Manziel & they were all made unavailable for week 1 due to some kitchen mishap at the Golden Coral, I'm signing Matt Lienart the day of the game & starting him.

As for Murray, he is definitely a guy I'd be happy drafting.

side note* I like Murray as well, I think he is the sleeper QB of the draft. Watch him end up in NE and be Brady's successor...

I don't get it with the attraction for Manziel ? Sure he was a blast to watch in college, but he'll have to lose the J.Football act in the NFL which means you are left with an undersized QB who's got a nothing-to-write-home-about arm which leaves me with the same conclusions that Jaws has about him.

Default Re: Aaron Murray QB Georgia

I think you undervalue his arm. He has plenty of zip on his throws and can easily throw long balls. And he doesn`t have a poor accuracy. He has poor mechanics, but those can be worked at.

For me the question marks around Manziel have more to do with how can he handle NFL competition. In college he could outrun everybody - in the pros he can`t. In college he didn`t have to wait in the pocket, he could just improvise. In the pros that leads to turnovers and injuries. In college he could just take a hit - in the pros those hits are brutal and he is a pretty small guy. In college he didn`t really have to read a defense and go through his progressions, in the pros you have to do just that.

He is an intriguing prospect with all the talent in the world - but just as he might become a star at the next level, he also could be our of the league in a couple of seasons.
