Rams showing interest in Aaron Murray

Scott Cunningham

The former Georgia QB says the Rams are one of a handful of teams showing the most interest ahead of the 2014 NFL Draft.

The St. Louis Rams are looking for a quarterback in the later rounds of the draft, a youngster to coach up and eventually be abel to handle the starting duties if Sam Bradford never lives up to the billing or gets injured again. One of the players they're apparently interested in is Georgia QB Aaron Murray.

The Rams were the first team Murray named in an interview with PFT Live when asked about teams he'd been talking to:

Murray tore his ACL in November of the 2013 season. He's been a four-year starter for the Bulldogs. Some felt like he should have come out for the 2013 NFL Draft. He didn't, and now he's got to answer concerns about his knee as well as scouts' favorite knock on him: size.

The NFL isn't quite as hostile to 6'1 quarterbacks thanks to the success of Russell Wilson and Drew Brees. But old habits die hard.

Speaking of old habits, Murray's appeal is that he played in a "pro-style" offense at Georgia, which is a media term for scouts and coaches who think the NFL is all about pocket statues. While Murray doesn't have much upside, he does have the basic tool kit to be a solid backup or even an average starter in the NFL. Some people like to compare him to Andy Dalton.

Murray will throw for the first time since his injury at his pro day on April 16.
