Murray hopes workout eases NFL draft concerns
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) Quarterback Aaron Murray still has some convincing to do after undergoing reconstructive knee surgery in late November.
Even so, Murray believes he alleviated many potential concerns about his health after working out in front of 23 NFL teams at Georgia’s pro day Wednesday.
Murray says he felt ”no limitations” despite wearing a brace on his left knee. Murray hopes that some scouts will recommend him as a second-round draft pick after his scripted workout that included 54 passes to several receivers.
Murray likewise understands that he could be the ninth quarterback taken and could fall into the fourth or fifth round.
But Murray says that NFL teams are impressed with his resume at Georgia – 52 career starts and Southeastern Conference career passing records for yards and touchdowns.
