Murray tossed a school-record 35 touchdown passes last season as he led the Bulldogs to the SEC title game.

Throwing 35 touchdowns in Mark Richt's unimaginative offense is hard enough, but doing it as a sophomore makes it even more impressive. Murray has a great feel for the game and is a terrific field general. His ability to throw on the run and his knack for the clutch play should make him enticing to the voters. If he shows further improvement as a junior and Georgia wins the SEC, he's a lock to go to New York as one of the Heisman finalists.

He's got the talent to shine, but he also needs to cut down on his mistakes (he had 14 picks last season) and work on improving his completion percentage. A high-profile SEC schedule should give him plenty of opportunities to spotlight his play.
