Aaron Murray Drafted by Kansas City, Arthur Lynch to Miami

Aaron Murray will continue his football career in Kansas City. The Chiefs selected Murray today in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft (163rd overall).

It was a long wait for Murray, who NFL scouts deem a little too short at 6’1″. Murray is also recovering from a torn ACL he suffered against Kentucky last November.

Murray finished his career at UGA as the SEC’s all-time leading passer. He completed 921 of 1,478 passes for 13,166 yards and 121 touchdowns. In his 52 starts, Murray accounted for 13,562 yards of total offense and also threw for at least 3,000 yards in four straight seasons.

Tight end Arthur Lynch was selected before Murray, going 155th overall to the Miami Dolphins. As a senior in Athens, Lynch had 30 catches for 459 yards and five touchdowns.

Lynch finished his collegiate career with 56 receptions for 907 yards and eight touchdowns.
