AARON MURRAY – Fifth Round Pick (163rd Overall) in 2014 NFL Draft
Two years before the short lived Kevin Hogan saga began, the Chiefs had a very similar story with Aaron Murray, who they picked up in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
Aaron Murray was an exciting pick at the time, mainly because it was the first time the Chiefs had drafted a quarterback since 2011.
Murray had a nice career at Georgia and was a big name heading into the draft. He wasn’t thought of to be a top prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft, mainly due to a knee injury he sustained during his senior season, but he still had some talent he could show off for sure.
The Chiefs went with Murray over Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, who was taken by the Bengals with their very next pick. While the Bengals actually had to use their young backup in 2015, they definitely had the better selection, as Murray has still yet to take an NFL snap.
Murray was the third string guy in both 2014 and in 2015, but was definitely the odd man out when Kevin Hogan was drafted, and even more so when Foles signed with the team.
Aaron Murray was an exciting pick at the time, mainly because it was the first time the Chiefs had drafted a quarterback since 2011, but he ended up becoming nothing in the Chiefs system.
He spent the 2016 season on both the Cardinals’ and Eagles’ practice squads.
