2013 NFL Draft: Would Aaron Murray fit with the New York Jets?

SB Nation's Gang Green Nation thinks so.


Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray is still questioning whether or not he should enter the NFL Draft, but SB Nation's Gang Green Nation thinks he would be a good fit with the New York Jets.

Gang Green Nation's David Wyatt breaks down the positives and the negatives in Murray's game, but his conclusion is strong on the junior:

I really like Murray as a future NFL QB, he reminds me a lot of Russell Wilson and his height will get questioned just as much as Wilson's. He needs to be used correctly, get him on the move - use him out of play-action and allow him to flex the field with his big arm. As a 2nd/3rd round guy, I really would like to see us take a chance on him. I like the improvements he has made with his accuracy and his leadership and toughness are traits I would love in a QB. His negatives can be improved with good coaching (which means we need to get rid of Cav).

Wyatt said he would "absolutely" like to see the Jets draft Murray in the second or third round.

Murray was fantastic for the Bulldogs this season, leading the team to a 12-2 overall record and a win in the Capitol One Bowl. Murray completed 64 percent of his passes for 3,893 yards and 36 touchdowns. He threw just 10 interceptions.

If the Capitol One Bowl was Murray's last game, he finished his career with a bang. He completed 18-of-33 passes for 427 yards and five touchdowns. It was Murray's best "big game" performance of the season.
