There’s no question that, as of today, Cam Newton is the SEC player of the year. But John Pennington makes a good case that no player in the conference is more valuable to his team than is Aaron Murray.
… Georgia’s redshirt freshman quarterback Murray might be the breakout player of the year in the SEC. Yes, Carolina’s Lattimore has looked tremendous, but Murray has flashed potential greatness, too. And the quarterback position is tougher to play than the running back position. Murray’s passer rating is good, he’s proven to be very mobile, and he ranks high in 4th quarter passing, too (a stat we showed you yesterday). If he continues to progress, Murray looks to be a future All-SEC quarterback, if not better.
