Coming out of high school, Aaron Murray was one of the most touted quarterback prospects. Murray was a four-year starter for the Georgia Bulldogs, earning plenty of accolades along the way, yet will probably be a mid-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. There is plenty of talent and potential among the quarterback prospects in this draft class and guys like Murray have enjoyed far less fanfare than the headliners at the position. Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel, Derek Carr and Teddy Bridgewater have easily been the most talked about quarterback prospects by far. However, it hasn’t been easy to make sense of much of the quarterback talk. Bortles has suddenly become possibly the top prospect at the position while Bridgewater has fallen well out of the top 10 and possibly out of the first round in the eyes of many despite an impressive college career. Manziel, nearly identical in size to Russell Wilson and a Heisman Trophy winner, has been mentioned as a possible first overall pick by some experts claim they wouldn’t take him until the third or fourth round. Tom Savage has been tabbed by some as the next Tom Brady for reasons I cannot possibly understand. It’s almost as if the experts are throwing darts at a wall and hoping something sticks. Of course, all prospects have question marks and nobody really knows how they will perform at the next level. So all you can go on is game film, stats, and performances at workouts. Some feel that Bridgewater has the best film of all quarterbacks in this draft. But guys have fallen down the board for hand size, personality, and other such factors. Carr was impressive last season in college but may be living off hopes he can be better than his older brother, David. Nobody is really talking much about later round dark horses like Murray, Jimmy Garropollo, and David Fales. Fales, much like Bridgewater, actually saw his stock drop this past season despite being projected as one of the better prospects after his junior season. In this 2014 draft where nobody has a clue how the selections will play out, a former Freshmen All-American, Capital One Bowl MVP, and SEC career leader in passing touchdowns and passing yards, is projected as a likely fourth round pick. Apparently it isn’t enough that Murray holds passing records in college football’s best conference. Sure, there are some injury concerns with him coming off an ACL injury and he doesn’t have prototypical size at just 6’1” but size isn’t as big of a deal for quarterbacks as it used to be. Size matters but shouldn’t be a deal breaker. Murray played in a pro-style offense and his touchdown to interception ratio was nearly three to one. He also completed over 60% of his passes. In each of his four seasons Murray surpassed 3,000 yards and threw at least 24 touchdowns. Murray will end up a steal in the later rounds if he can prove to be durable and that his shorter stature isn’t a limitation. In fact, he could very well end up being the best quarterback in this entire draft class. The only sure thing in this draft is that nothing is a sure thing, especially when it comes to quarterbacks. While Murray may or may not be the guy, rest assured at least one quarterback selected after the first round will have a surprisingly outstanding NFL career.
