Height, weight: 6-1, 207

Projection: Fourth or fifth round

Strengths: Good leader, four-year experience created good timing with receivers, good football IQ.

Weaknesses: Inconsistent under pressure, size, known to make costly mistakes in big games, coming off ACL surgery.

The skinny: Murray’s durability is concerning even after his Pro Day last week. He was having a great senior season until his injury. He could be targeted by teams looking to draft two quarterbacks.

Zach Mettenberger

School: LSU

Height, weight: 6-5, 224

Projection: Fourth or fifth round

Strengths: Has size of prototypical quarterback, can withstand pressure in the pocket, ran pro-style offense under former NFL offensive coordinator Cam Cameron.

Weaknesses: Poor awareness in the pocket, doesn’t read through his progressions, locks on receivers, poor deep-ball accuracy, prone to underthrow balls, coming off ACL surgery, character issues off the field.

The skinny: NFL general managers, head coaches and offensive coordinators are going with history here and want to take a shot on Mettenberger, a quarterback with the ideal size. Don’t believe the hype. If he gets picked any higher than Day 3, it’s a huge risk.

Logan Thomas

School: Virginia Tech

Height, weight: 6-6, 248

Projection: Fifth through seventh round
