Aaron Murray, a six-foot tall quarterback rehabbing an injury to his ACL, is at the Senior Bowl. Not to play, but to meet with prospective employers. He’s got a sales pitch, too.
… “They have four years of film on me,” Murray said. “They can go back and watch all those games and see how I’ve thrown the ball.” He’ll also be able to impress coaches on the dry erase board with his knowledge of their offensive systems. The scheme used by Bobo and Georgia coach Mark Richt is far more similar to an NFL offense than some of the spread schemes that have all but taken over the college game. “It helps a lot,” Murray said. “A lot of the stuff we’re going over in meetings — the drops and play-action and stuff like that — is stuff I’ve been doing for the past four years.”
That works as well for the program he comes from as himself. Recruits, take note.
