The Georgia quarterback could make an early leap to the NFL after his junior season.

Georgia Bulldogs fans are still anxiously awaiting the decision of their senior-to-be quarterback on whether he'll be staying or going. The Bulldogs are getting ready for the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the Capital One Bowl all while Aaron Murray mulls over staying in school for another year or declaring for the NFL Draft.

Where Murray would be picked is up for debate. ESPN's Mel Kiper thinks Murray is a second-day pick at best, meaning no earlier than the second round. CBS Sports ranks him as the 42nd overall prospect in the draft with a projected pick in the second round.

Kiper is much higher on Murray's defensive teammate, Jarvis Jones, who he ranks first overall on his draft board, but injury issues could scare some teams off. Kiper also notes a couple of other defensive players are potential first rounders, with junior linebacker Alec Ogletree a possible top-10 pick and nose tackle John Jenkins a likely first-round selection according to Kiper.
