    Drafting Aaron Murray in later rounds

    Just a quick post to see two things.

    1.) Do people think A.Murray would be available in round 4/5 (given injury and non testing at combine)?

    2.) Do we think that he would be a suitable backup to Sam. I think he would be an interesting candidate but Id imagine he may be gone by our pick in either round and we would likely have to move up to the top of either round to grab him.

    Thoughts ?

    Re: Drafting Aaron Murray in later rounds

    I actually prefer him to McCarron as a Rams prospect and I think he'll be available in round 4 as you suggest.

    I think Murray held together with less around him for a long time, and handles himself in the pocket better than McCarron will. He (McCarrdon was really exposed in his bowl game and seemed to just crumble.)

    I also prefer Murray's arm strength and leadership skills. He also seems like a good fit for our scheme.

    As far as predicting where he might go? Hard to say at this point, but I think he'll surprise some by going a little higher than where he's projected (4-5) right now.

    I prefer Logan Thomas as a flier because he has NFL size, arm and talent....

    Murray is shorter, an doesn't have smooth feel to his game, it seems violent and more chaotic

    Re: Drafting Aaron Murray in later rounds

    Murray strikes me as a player who could have some success in the NFL as a backup, as he is smart, fairly accurate, and has good experience. I think his limited arm strength, though, will result in a ceiling for him, and I don't think he'll ever be a starter.

    I would rather that the Rams take a guy who has more upside. I like Garoppolo in Round 3, but I think he'll be gone by then. McCarron in Round 3 would work. After that, I look at guys like Jeff Matthews, Logan Thomas and David Fales as better options than Murray.

    I like Garoppolo if we where to get a few extra picks say in the second round I would not hate it to see us use one on him. I like is quick release.
