Not even five months after he tore his ACL, Aaron Murray will throw at the Georgia Pro Day on April 16, his agent, Pat Dye Jr., told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Saturday.

The 23-year-old, who is projected as a Day 2 or 3 draft pick, will drop back, roll out, plant his feet and throw, according to Dye. He tore his ACL in a win over Kentucky in November.

"He looks great," Dye told the newspaper. "I mean, his body composition looks great, his knee looks great, he's moving around really well, he's not favoring it at all. His strength and conditioning coaches and his movement coaches down there say they've very rarely had anybody come through there with the kind of work ethic, drive and passion that he has.

"He not only will he be able to give them a representative workout at pro day, but he'll be able to do all his drops and roll-outs. He's not going to run the 40 or do any of the timed drills. There's no point in that. But he's throwing the ball great."

Murray, who started all 52 games of his college career, threw 121 touchdown passes and 41 interceptions in his career. In the game he was injured, Murray became the first SEC quarterback to throw for at least 3,000 yards in four seasons.
