Former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray was the first to start a run on SEC quarterbacks when the Chiefs drafted him in the fifth round.

But before all that, former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray found a new home when the Chiefs drafted him in the fifth round with the No. 163 overall pick. The pick, which occured right before fellow SEC alum AJ McCarron was selected was given a so-so grade from our Derek Stephens.

Murray had a standout career with the Bulldogs, setting an SEC record in career touchdowns and career passing yards and throwing for 3,000-plus yards in all four years of eligibility. But he tore his ACL toward the end of the 2013 season, and his size (6-foot-1, 207 pounds) probably was a big negative for teams looking for a quarterback.
Still the selection was met with approval by CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco.
I like Murray to the Chiefs. It fits.— Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) May 10, 2014
