Murray pleased with pro demonstration

Murray during Wednesday pro workout

 

 

ATHENS, Ga. -- Aaron Murray finished up his Georgia Pro Day workout on Wednesday satisfied that he showed NFL teams how far he’s come in his recovery from a torn ACL.

The quarterback completed 48 of 54 passes scripted for him on a breezy day on the Georgia practice fields.

“I feel great right now,” said Murray, who tore the ACL in his left knee less than five months ago. “I feel no limitations with the knee. I think everyone today saw that between all the movement I was doing, the cutting, the sprinting. We put a lot of throws on the right, left, demonstrate my ability to cut off my leg and show everyone that I’m healthy. These teams don’t have to worry about if they draft me, I’m going to have to sit out or something like that.”

There were 23 NFL teams represented, according to Georgia. The scouts were evaluating Murray ahead of the May 8-10 NFL draft.

Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley was on hand.

Terry Shea, the former NFL quarterbacks coach, ran Murray’s workout and not surprisingly called it an “A+.”

“I thought it was a great day,” Murray said. “We had a lot of fun. The receivers, running backs, Arthur (Lynch) the tight end made some great plays. I think everyone was excited. We had to wait for this day. We had to push it back a little bit because of my injury.”
