This bit of praise was offered by CBS’ own Gary Danielson:
“Aaron (Murray) has come a long way, I’ve seen him put on displays in practice that I would compare to Drew Brees” Gary Danielson #SXMNFL

When you consider how many Georgia fans cannot stand Gary Danielson for what appears to be an SEC bias towards a few of the SEC’s more “popular” teams, this comment offers a strong bit of praise. It also speaks to a growing trend for Aaron Murray—one where he is actually getting publicity that isn’t centered around his size, so called lack of “arm strength”, or inability to win big games (yes, people are still saying this).
That’s a very good thing because it means he could potentially land a bit higher in the draft than initially thought.
Now, I still don’t know that he’ll climb into second round territory (although there have been some publications willing to make that bold prediction), but the positive buzz speaks well of his ability to so far prove that there’s a lot more to him than people initially imagined.
