LNBS: Aaron Murray will be our Nick Foles

I think both guys waited a year too long to enter the draft.

If Nick Foles had come out after his junior year, he would have had a chance to be a first round pick. If Aaron Murray came out last year, he would have, too. Heck, Tony Dungy said on espn last year that he would take Aaron Murray first overall if he had come out.

I know some here have said the guy won't ever have a chance to start, but I really think the kid can do everything Alex Smith did last year and then some, if given the chance.

I had the QBs ranked like this pre-draft:

Bridgewater
Bortles
Carr
Murray
Manziel
Savage
Bunch of other dudes guaranteed to suck

I'm more pissed about passing on Bridgewater than Manziel. So after that, Murray was the QB I wanted the entire time. It's unbelievable to me that we got him in the 5th.

He's got far more starting potential than a lot of people on here are giving him credit for. His floor is as a Chase Daniel backup. That's his floor. Which is damn high and kind of impressive, really.

The path to becoming a starter in the pros for him isn't as unlikely as some people are saying. I'm still not holding my breath for him to do it, but it's no worse than most other QBs you get from the 2nd round and later.

At this point, the biggest dragon for him to slay is Buttchin, and the sooner he does it the better. I'll be rooting for him, certainly.

I'm aware of that.

Watched a lot of Murray, and have always liked him.
Felt he has the same kind of accuracy and anticipation in his game as Brees.

But if he was really thought of as a high draft pick before the knee, I really doubt that knee would have caused a drop into the fifth round.

Elvis Grbac had a cannon. So did Jeff George, JaMarcus Russell, and Ryan Leaf.

So stop already with the noodle arm bullshit argument.
This.

If you wanna see a real noodle arm, plug in some highlight tape of Downfield Damon Huard. THAT'S a noodle arm.

How far would Russel Wilson have fell if he blew out his knee in November of his final year in college?

But generally 5th rounders are 5th rounders for a reason.

I would really love to see us, for once, be the team that finds that hidden gem, but I won't be holding my breath.
Probably because NFL scouts caught on the fact his track record against top college defenses is pretty lackluster to say it nicely.

Not saying that's going to be a prohibitive factor from here on out but that's my guess.

298 yards 4tds 1int and a rushing td against LSU
309 yards 4tds 0ints against S Carolina
415 yards 2td passing 2rushing tds 1int against Auburn

I'm struggling to find the bad games from last year...

So you are basically hoping he somehow becomes low-end Jeff Garcia high-end Drew Brees.
Manning does alright with a noodle arm.
