NFL Draft 2014: Aaron Murray Pegged as Draft’s “Top Sleeper” at QB

There are more than a few people who are already willing to write former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray off because of his size, injury, etc., but more and more, lately, you’re seeing people take a second look at the diminutive quarterback and say, “why not Aaron Murray?”

One of those people is NFL analyst, Charles Davis, who says he saw improvement in Murray over the course of his collegiate career and feels that he might “surprise” a few folks at the next level, if given the chance.

…He’ll enter the league with plenty of experience against top competition, and he’s been a big-time producer. I thought he improved throughout his college career. His height (6-foot 3/8) will be held against him, but he has the makeup of a player that could surprise at the next level. (Charles Davis, NFL.com)

I’ve long said that I believe people are selling Murray short, his height be damned, that kid is one hell of a quarterback: he makes good decisions with the football, studies and knows the game as well as any offensive coach on the football field, and is the consummate professional…not to mention he’s tough as nails.

I’ll certainly be missing his presence in a Georgia uniform next season, that’s for sure.
