Aaron Murray to take time with NFL decision

The junior quarterback doesn't know if he's staying or going yet.

Right now, Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray says his mind is completely focused on the Nebraska Cornhuskers and their impending Capital One Bowl match-up. But when he met with the press today, the inevitable question came up: will he be leaving school a year early to declare for the NFL Draft? Murray says he hasn't made up his mind and probably won't for a while.

Murray says he'll be sitting down with his parents and coaches and drawing out a pros and cons list when it comes to declaring for the draft. Some draft prognosticators have Murray pegged as a second- or third-round pick should be declare this season. Murray noted the most important thing though is to think about everything rationally.

"I've gotta sit down with my parents, and we'll discuss the pros and cons, then we'll go from there ... I don't want to make any stupid decisions based on emotion," Murray said.

Murray will get one final chance to impress scouts his junior season when the Bulldogs take on the Cornhuskers on New Years Day in the Capital One Bowl.
