ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The Atlanta Falcons used their No. 6 pick in the 2014 NFL draft to take lineman Jake Matthews out of Texas A&M.

The Houston Texans selected Jadeveon Clowney as the No. 1 overall pick.

In the past 10 years, not including 2014, 70 percent of the No. 1 overall picks have been quarterbacks.

Still on the board is Aaron Murray. Murray hasn't been in the news much, but CBS46 sports director Larry Smith believes the Georgia quarterback will be a starter in the NFL.

Smith said he believes Murray will be selected in the 3rd or 4th round, as early as Friday.

Murray is the all-time SEC leader in passing touchdowns and passing yards, with 13,166 passing yards and 121 passing touchdowns.
