Default Aaron Murray or Johnny Manziel

With the likelihood Manziel going in the draft this year and the fact that Murray's eligibility is complete, who does everyone think will have a better pro career?

That's a tough one. Manziel is more physically gifted, but Murray has showed he can be successful running a pro system. Then you also have the question of Murray struggling in big games vs big teams a lot.

Murray reminds me of Ryan in Atlanta. Great stats but failing when the pressure is on. Its hard to say about Manzell, but his talent is off the charts.

Manziel will have a decent short term career, but that scrambling is going to hurt him eventually. He is going to get blown up or wise Dbs will trick him into INTs

Manziel does have crazy plays in college and physical ability, but just don't think his 'run 20 yards backwards, chuck the ball up and some guy catches it' luck will continue. That doesn't mean Murray will automatically be better, but I don't think Manziel will last long in the pros. I think Murray can be a 10 year pro just hanging on as a back up at least. Manziel, even if the does well, will only last physically for 5 years before the hits take their toll. That is why I picked Murray.

Tough one. I agree with above in that Manziel has more natural talent and a more dynamic player, but I can see Murray managing an NFL offense better. Same with McCarron.

Aaron Murray's peak is to be the next Charlie Whitehurst.


This is not an insult, Charlie has the best job ever.

Yeah I think he is better than Bridgewater but it isn't as likely he will come out as it is for Manziel.

Manziel has more talent, but I would have more trust in Murray to run an offense. I see Manziel starting in the NFL and Murray being a career backup. I think Manziel can be successful too, but I think he has to want it and put the work in to get there.

I agree. Blake Bortles is a RS Junior, he can declare but if he wants the big bucks it might benefit him to wait until next year with this years QB class.

Manziel will have maybe 1 year of success, then he'll fall by the wayside into suck and fail as other have done.

Murray will be a serviceable backup unless I'm much mistaken....I don't see him as being a franchise QB.

Bortles and that UCLA Qb kid will be better than both, IMHO

I don't think the UCLA QB is as good as you have him rated.

He is going to be good at the pro level. UGA's offense hasn't been the problem. They put up yards and points...
