2013 NFL Draft: Aaron Murray has big decision upcoming

Aaron Murray has been terrific this season, but can he leave a team that has championship aspirations in 2013?

The Georgia Bulldogs came within a few yards of being in the National Championship Game, something that has to be weighing on the mind of Aaron Murray while he decides whether or not to enter the NFL Draft in April.

Murray has been the source of much conjecture when it comes to where he would be drafted, with some calling him a second-day pick while Tony Dungy said he would take him with the No. 1 overall pick.

Still, Murray has some more time to make his decision and is going to use it, debating if a senior season in Athens will help his draft stock or potentially hurt it, according to dogbytes.com. Right now, Murray just wants to focus on the Nebraska Cornhuskers and the Capital One Bowl.

"We sat down a little bit and talked about it. It was mostly my parents doing the pros and cons. I’m just sitting there watching TV as they talked about it. We talked about it a little bit, but I told them I mostly want to focus on this game and talk about it more when I get home after the game."

If he enters, he will be in a somewhat weak quarterback class along with Geno Smith, Mike Glennon, Ryan Nassib and Matt Barkley.
