    I remember watching Stephen Morris last year against NCState I believe where he lit them up.. Again this was NCSU but i think the kid threw for almost 600 yards.

    Yep, threw for an ACC-record 566 yards as well as 5 TD's. He's got elite arm talent. The question is whether he can run an NFL offense, which I believe he can. He makes great NFL throws already at Miami. He's perfected the back-shoulder throw ala Aaron Rodgers. His overall game reminds me of Rodgers' too. He just needs to become more consistent this year.

    He's listed at 6'1". I took an inch away cause I know he's not that tall and he said himself in an interview during the Cotton Bowl that he's 6'0" on the nose.

    maybe with tall cleats. I know way too many aggie students that see him around and they all laugh at how anyone could think he's 6'0".

    Not sure if he's going to go pro or not but my guy is Taylor Kelly. Watch out for a break out year from him.

    Im a UGA fan, if Aaron Murray and UGA can make it through the first 4 games (@clemson,S.Carolina,N.Texas,LSU) they have a great chance of running the table.Thats a big IF though.

    Braxton Miller is going to be really intriguing to teams. Shocked he isnt on that list.

    I actually like Taylor Kelly. Only saw him play a couple games last season but I liked what I saw. He's a dual-threat and shows good poise. I'd have to watch more tape on him though to really get a good feel for him. I'd bet that he returns to school for his Senior season so he'd be a 2015 prospect.

    Braxton Miller needs to improve a lot as a pocket passer before NFL teams start looking at him seriously as a high-round draft pick. He has great athleticism and decent size at 6'1, but he tucks and runs far too often if his first read isn't there. And he's inconsistent with his accuracy. this year will be big for him to show if he's improved.

    Yeah, Green Bay was so dumb for drafting Aaron Rodgers in the 1st round when they had Brett Favre.

    Generally, if you don't have a first-round quarterback, the rest of it doesn't matter.

    After tonight, I don't think Derek Carr's going to be a sleeper pick anymore... His stat line:

    52-73, 453 yards & 5 TD's....

    Yes, you read that right. The man threw the ball 73 times!! And was really clutch in leading his team back to a victory in OT against a solid Rutgers D. He looked elite out there and made great throws all night. If this is any indication of his season, I fully expect him to shoot up draft boards and possibly even be a 1st round pick. Only one game though, so I won't overreact.

    I'm interested to see what Aaron Murray does. He has RBs that can set up some nice play action passes.

    His fate will be decided in the first 4 games.

    @Clemson, S.Carolina,N.Texas, LSU.
    If he can put up good numbers through that stretch, he'll go in the first round. If not, prob 2nd-3rd. He is a good QB, but he HAS to show up in a big game.

    The QB for NIU, Jordan Lynch looks pretty good. Has got size, speed, and seems accurate.

    Not impressed with Murray. He's just not an elite prospect like he's made out to be. Maybe a 3rd round pick or so
