Georgia‚Äôs Aaron Murray and LSU‚Äôs Zach Mettenberger, from Oconee County High School, weren‚Äôt among the five quarterbacks picked in the first three rounds of the NFL draft.
Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron also is still available after 100 picks have been completed.
No Georgia players were picked in the first three rounds for the first time since 2008. Defensive end Marcus Howard was the first pick that year in the fifth round to Indianapolis.
Murray spent Friday with his family and girlfriend at Busch Gardens in his hometown of Tampa and then they hit a sports-themed restaurant at night when the draft was held and got in some bowling.
ESPN had a camera on Murray sitting and watching the draft early in the third round.
‚ÄúAt the end of the day, I just want to be picked by a team and put in the right situation,‚Äù Murray said at Georgia‚Äôs Pro Day last month. ‚ÄúBe put in a situation where the scheme fits me and my abilities and what I‚Äôm able to do on the field and a great coaching staff that‚Äôs willing to work with me and push me every day to make me better.‚Äù
Both Murray and Mettenberger are coming off torn ACLs late in their senior seasons.
Mettenberger, who was dismissed from Georgia after redshirting as a freshman, was listed as the best available player on NFL Network‚Äôs Mike Mayock‚Äôs list as the third round wound down.
‚ÄúRemember 16 weeks removed from an ACL, bad back and a diluted sample at the combine,‚Äù Mayock said.
Former NFL quarterback Rich Gannon said prior to the draft on the CBS Sports Network that Murray, the Southeastern Conference‚Äôs career passing yardage leader, reminds him of Cincinnati‚Äôs Andy Dalton in terms of college experience and not the greatest arm strength.
‚ÄúI really like this guy,‚Äù Gannon said. ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs played a lot of football in the best conference of all of football, the SEC, 52 starts. The guy has good anticipation on throws. His creativity, his mobility is very good. I know he‚Äôs coming off an ACL, but I just think he‚Äôs probably mentally as ready as any quarterback coming out of the draft. I don‚Äôt think he‚Äôs maybe going to be a Pro Bowl caliber player in year two or three, but in the right situation, the right system, this guy can function and be productive.‚Äù
Three quarterbacks were taken in Friday‚Äôs first round: UCF‚Äôs Blake Bortles (Jacksonville), Texas A&M‚Äôs Johnny Manziel (Cleveland), Louisville‚Äôs Teddy Bridgewater (Minnesota).
Fresno State‚Äôs Derek Carr went to Oakland with the fourth pick of the second round and Eastern Illinois‚Äôs Jimmy Garoppolo was picked by New England with the 62nd¬†overall pick.
Murray wasn‚Äôt projected generally as a top-five quarterback.
Tight end Arthur Lynch from Georgia is also expected to be selected on Saturday. Seven tight ends already have been selected.
Defensive end Garrison Smith and offensive linemen Kenarious Gates, Chris Burnette and Dallas Lee are among former Bulldogs hoping to also get picked Saturday.
