The Jacksonville Jaguars should take a familiar quarterback on Day 3 of the upcoming NFL draft, writes SI.com's Doug Farrar.

Farrar's choice for a sleeper pick for the Jaguars in Round 3 or later is former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray. He says Murray has command of the "little things" and he could develop into a valuable spot starter. Murray's height (6-foot-1) isn't as much of an issue as it would have been several years ago, either.

Murray is the first quarterback in SEC history to throw for more than 3,000 yards in four consecutive seasons, and he also owns SEC records for touchdown passes (121) and total offense (13,562), among others.
