What scouts are saying:

"Diminutive, game-managing pocket passer still recovering from a torn ACL. Would benefit from a moving pocket that can create open throwing lanes, yet does not have the foot quickness desired for a rollout passing game. Possesses a skill set most ideally suited for a backup or No. 3 role. Intelligence, intangibles and experience are all pluses." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

"As one might expect given his playing time, Murray does many of the little things well. He has a quick set-up and delivery. He throws a tight spiral and is creative in the pocket, showing the ability to slide and re-set, as well as deliver passes from a variety of arm slots. He throws deep passes with velocity and good trajectory and can attack down the seam with excellent touch, as well." (Rob Rang, CBSSports.com)

"In Aaron Murray’s case, it’s a mixture of a naturally adequate arm in terms of velocity along with consistent mechanically and footwork. Murray has developed footwork-wise, both in the pocket and on the move. In both below plays, Murray displays the ability to set his feet in the pocket, even despite pressure, and deliver strikes between levels of coverage that he’ll need to show at the NFL level." (Eric Galko, Optimumscouting.com)

"I really like former Georgia Bulldogs star QB Aaron Murray as a second-round pick for a team that wants to go for a second-tier QB, because he was productive in an incredibly tough conference, has sneaky mobility, has very good accuracy, and has more arm strength and poise than the overrated McCarron." (Joe Soriano, NFLspinzone.com)
