KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs drafted Georgia's Aaron Murray in the fifth round today, giving them a most interesting mix at quarterback. Behind starter Alex Smith, the Chiefs have veteran backup Chase Daniel, developmental prospect Tyler Bray and now Murray.
Murray tore his ACL last year in November, but said he is ready for full participation in practice.
Eventually the Chiefs have to make a decision on which quarterbacks to keep and which one to part with. But they didn't draft Murray to immediately release him. Though at 6-foot and 200 pounds he doesn't have the classic size for a quarterback, they obviously like his skills and the way he fits into Andy Reid's offense.
