Why he's No. 8: Murray has started 27 straight games for the Bulldogs and has piled up impressive numbers. While he'd like to improve on his interceptions (22 in two seasons), Murray has the ability as both a runner and passer to be one the the league's elite players.

College career: Murray has thrown for more than 3,000 yards in each of his first two seasons at Georgia. In addition to his 59 touchdowns passes, he has run for six touchdowns as well. His 35 TD passes last year were a Georgia single-season record.

Fun fact: Murray's younger sister Stephanie threw for 42 touchdowns one year in her high school flag football league.
