Aaron Murray, 6-1, 210 pounds, QB, Georgia: Often believed to be undersized, Aaron Murray has the resume (696-of-1,131 passes for 10,091 yards, 95 touchdowns and 32 interceptions) of an NFL quarterback. Most mock drafts don't have him in the top 50 picks, but there are a few who consider him among the Top 5 quarterbacks who would be eligible in the 2014 NFL Draft - even over Alabama's A.J. McCarron. Here are the SEC players who would draw early interest:
Jadeveon Clowney, 6-6, 256, DE, South Carolina: A clear favorite to be the overall top pick in 2014, Clowney has 21 sacks, 33.5 tackles for loss and seven forced fumbles during his two-year career at South Carolina.
Anthony Johnson, 6-3, 310, DT, LSU: Johnson was productive as LSU's third defensive tackle, accumulating 30 tackles (11 solo) and 3 sacks, in 2012. A junior, he would enter the 2014 NFL Draft as an underclassman.
Johnny Manziel, 6-1, 200, QB, Texas A&M: The Heisman Trophy winner also will be eligible to declare for the draft after this season. In his freshman season, Manziel threw for 3,706 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions.
C.J. Mosley, 6-2, 232, LB, Alabama: An edge-rusher who returned for his senior season, Mosley was a leader in the Crimson Tide's linebacker corp with 107 tackles (66 solo), 4 sacks, and 2 interceptions in 2012.
