Murray's just a little too small to be a true 'pro-style' Quarterback. And I know that people love to point to Brees as proof that small QBs can excel, but c'mon, Brees is a God. He's the exception that proves the rule.
Murray isn't Brees - and this is from someone that's higher on Murray than most. That said, he does so many of the things a smart QB does. He's very polished, very intelligent and a good leader. If you could take his technique and give it to Bray, you'd have a better prospect than Stafford was.
Murray's height and body type just don't lend themselves to being an elite QB. He could be an outlier, but it's unlikely. For every Brees there are a dozen McCoys (or soon, Russell Wilson's - c'mon fellas, the kid isn't good). Now Murrays not quite that small, but with an arm that ranks as just slightly above average and similar athleticism (though it's better than people thing), his margin for error is very slim.
I think he can be a winning QB in this league, but he won't be an elite one. I see a ton of Andy Dalton in him, to be honest.
