Former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray will throw at Georgia’s pro day on April 16 according to Chip Towers of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
According to Towers’ report, Murray and a host of his former teammates got in a workout from Georgia’s practice field on Saturday while the Bulldogs scrimmaged at Sanford Stadium.
Murray was throwing pass routes to his former Georgia teammates, including Marlon Brown, Tavarres King, Arthur Lynch, Rhett McGowan and Rantavious Wooten. There were a few others helping out as well, including Chris Burnette, who was acting as his center, and his sister, Stephanie Murray, who was acting as ball girl.
Murray tore the ACL in his left knee against Kentucky on Nov. 23—his 52nd consecutive (and final) start as the Bulldogs’ leader. He’s an intriguing prospect because of his accuracy and leadership abilities. The undersized quarterback doesn’t quite reach 6’1″ in height and weighs only 207 pounds, but his attributes have some wondering if he’s the next Drew Brees.
The NFL Draft begins with Round 1 on May 8, and Murray is projected as a Day 3 pick, or somewhere between Rounds 4 and 7. He holds several school records at Georgia.
