BIO: Former defensive lineman who started the past two seasons. All-Conference selection as a senior.
POSITIVES: Strong, lumbering blocker best in a small area. Works to play with good pad level, keeps his feet moving and seals defenders from the play. Patient, jolts defenders with good hand punch and flashes power.
NEGATIVES: Bends at the waist, possesses limited blocking range and not effective in motion.
ANALYSIS: Progressing on the offensive line the past two years, Murphy is a developmental prospect destined for a practice squad.
