Former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray made quite an impression on Jacksonville Jaguars coach Gus Bradley at the Senior Bowl by actively participating in meetings despite not being able to play in the game because of a knee injury.

That impression was reinforced at Murray's pro day, writes Marc Weiszer of the Athens (Ga.) Banner-Herald.

Bradley, the only NFL head coach in attendance, liked what he saw from Murray, who was throwing in public for the first time since tearing the ACL in his left knee in a Nov. 23 game against Kentucky.

"We have, as much as you can, a good feel for his personality, his competitiveness," Bradley said. "That’s off the charts. Then to see how fast he came back and how he’s doing it and the drills that he did, very impressive. ... The big thing was to see how he’s progressed through that injury and how he’s come back. If nothing else, it shows how competitive he is. To come back from an injury like that, I think it just reassured us of what we thought we already knew."

Here are some additional pieces of Jaguars-related content from around the Web in our Reading the Coverage feature:

It's a pretty deep group of receivers in the draft, but teams are going to have to decide which kind they want, writes Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union.

NFL.com's Bucky Brooks did a 2012 re-draft. His pick for the Jaguars instead of receiver Justin Blackmon? Quarterback Robert Griffin III.

CBSSports.com's Pete Prisco's latest mock draft still has the Jaguars taking defensive end Jadeveon Clowney.

Here's some reader feedback on my picks for the Jaguars' best and worst draft picks in each round.
