Analysis:

Murray is a four year starter in the SEC with plenty of experience leading a top 25 team. Beyond that he leaves a lot to be desired physically. He has a small frame and a weak arm. He makes up for that with a lack of athleticism. Murray also has a hard time when pressured. His mechanics break down and his accuracy suffers. He also needs to stride into every throw to get velocity. Will be a good backup in the league but you don’t want him starting for your team.
