Pro Days are wrapping up in advance of the 2014 NFL Draft and while most of the big names have already shown their stuff, there's still plenty of interesting teams and players on the docket. For instance, Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray.

Murray's a special case because he tore his ACL in November while Georgia was playing Kentucky ... and is somehow going to throw at his UGA's April 16 pro day anyway.

“He looks great,” Murray's agent Pat Dye told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I mean his body composition looks great, his knee looks great, he's moving around really well, he's not favoring it at all. His strength and conditioning coaches and his movement coaches down there say they've very rarely had anybody come through there with the kind work ethic, drive and passion that he has. He not only will he be able to give them a representative workout at Pro Day, but he'll be able to do all his drops and roll-outs.

"He's not going to run the 40 or do any of the timed drills. There's no point in that. But he's throwing the ball great."

Murray is NFLDraftScout.com's 8th-ranked quarterback (and 141st overall player) and is projected to be drafted in the fourth or fifth round of May's draft.

His stock obviously took a hit after suffering the ACL injury; some thought he could be mentioned among the top quarterbacks, although his size (6'1") is a concern.

It's fantastic news that things are going well for the quarterback now, however. If he's as improved as Dye says, it could certainly spice up the draft a bit.

“Everything's going great,” Dye said. “He wakes up every day trying to get better. Things look good. We've still got a little time. I think teams will be pretty shocked at what they see.”
