Former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray will throw at his school’s Pro Day on April 16, less than five months after suffering a torn ACL.
Murray’s agent, Pat Dye Jr., told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Murray has recovered sufficiently that he can drop back, roll out, plant his feet and throw. He’ll do all of that for NFL scouts.
“He looks great,” Dye said. “I mean his body composition looks great, his knee looks great, he’s moving around really well, he’s not favoring it at all. His strength and conditioning coaches and his movement coaches down there say they’ve very rarely had anybody come through there with the kind work ethic, drive and passion that he has. He not only will he be able to give them a representative workout at Pro Day, but he’ll be able to do all his drops and roll-outs. He’s not going to run the 40 or do any of the timed drills. There’s no point in that. But he’s throwing the ball great.”
Murray was a four-year starter at Georgia, a three-time bowl game MVP and the SEC’s all-time leader in passing yards and passing touchdowns. His senior season was cut short when he blew out his knee on November 23, but if NFL teams are satisfied that he’s making good progress in his rehabilitation, he’ll be an intriguing quarterback prospect in this year’s draft.
