Aaron Murray undecided on NFL Draft

Georgia junior quarterback Aaron Murray is not often thought of as a possibility to leave early for the 2013 NFL Draft, but he didn't rule it out on Tuesday.

With just three games remaining in the junior season for Georgia's Aaron Murray, the quarterback isn't necessarily ruling out the possibility that they could be his final three games as a member of the Bulldogs. On Tuesday, Murray told Seth Emerson of the Macon Telegraph that he hasn't thought much yet about the possibility of foregoing his senior season:

"I don't know," Murray said, laughing. "I'm not thinking about that. I mean I've had friends and everyone ask me. I'm like, I don't know, I'm not worrying about that until after the season, and then I'll sit down with my family and make the best decision for myself and for my future."

Although Murray has put up prolific numbers in three seasons as starter for the Bulldogs, size may play a factor in teams' willingness to select the Tampa-native. Listed at just 6'1, Murray will have the same challenges that Seahawks rookie Russell Wilson had to overcome to become starter after being selected in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.

Murray, 22, needs just 14 yards passing to cross 3,000 yards for a third consecutive season. The junior has completed 65.7 percent of his passes and has accumulated 28 touchdowns while throwing only seven interceptions.
