    Dolphins show interest in Aaron Murray

    We already now the Dolphins are showing interest in former University of Miami quarterback Stephen Morris. Well, they're apparently somewhat keen on former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray as well.
    A league source tells me Murray has met with some Dolphins representatives during the current draft process and there could be a future meeting that would suggest a greater desire by the team to understand what makes Murray tick.
    Murray, it must be mentioned, is not expected to be selected high in the draft. Despite being a four-year starter at Georgia and throwing threwing 121 TDs and only 41 interceptions, the player who competed at the highest level against SEC competition is considered a likely third-to-fifth round draft pick, depending on varying opinions.
    Murray suffered a torn ACL in November and did not compete at the Indianapolis Scouting Combine. But he was sufficiently recovered -- he'd say fully recovered -- to show his wares at the Georgia Pro Day.
    Murray didn't seem to have any limitations at that workout -- which is stunning considering the knee reconstruction was done six months ago. But he did wear a brace for the session.
    This is how NFL.com's Gil Brandt broke down Murray's Pro Day:
    "Murray — who has 9 1/8-inch hands — threw 54 passes at the pro day, with just two that would be considered not catchable. He showed good velocity on the ball, but toward the end of the workout it appeared as if his arm got tired. His knee looked stable, but he did wear a brace on it.
    "Murray — whose mother and father were both present to watch the workout — had a very good pro day. He’s a not-get-too-high or not-get-too-low type of player. If there’s a run on quarterbacks in the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft, he could wind up being selected in that round."
    We'll see about that second-round prediction. Despite his NFL-caliber arm and production in college, Murray is not one of the new-thing running QBs. He's a pocket passer. And his size (6-1) is not prototypical. But then you come back to his production and, well, it makes a good case for him.
    By the way, the fact the Dolphins are doing so much homework on Morris and Murray and other QBs should plant the seed that the team is seriously going to consider drafting a quarterback in this coming draft.
    lIt may not happen early -- as Miami doesn't even have a complete offensive line to protect starter Ryan Tannehill so that's kind of sort of the priority -- but if a value pick in later rounds is available, new general manager Dennis Hickey may take him.

    4th round at the very highest. I am open to it, as I'm high on Murray. Doubt it plays out that way though.

    4th round sounds about right. His guy is tough as nails and seems to have great football smarts. Coming of an injury which seems to be a recurring theme around here. i could see him beating out Devlin for a spot.


    Draft guys what do you think ?

    If Murray is on the board when the Phins pick in the 4th... they should think long and hard about selecting him.

    Murray IMO is the best of the SEC QB's avialble. Given a yr or 2 of seasoning will be better than Devlin or Moore

    Drafting him is a good idea in 4th round. We finally get the Brees clone after all these years.

    I'd take him in the 4th a hundred times out of a hundred before taking Morris in the 6th or 7th.

    We will be lucky if he is on the board when we pick in round 4. If he is though, you have to take him.
