BIO: Former junior college transfer started the past two seasons. Posted 52/9.5/3.5 as a senior.
POSITIVES: Athletic edge-rusher who can be a disruptive force. Fast, gets a lot of momentum going upfield and exploits immobile blockers. Quickly changes direction, displays speed to the flanks and makes plays down the line of scrimmage.
NEGATIVES: Not strong, can be driven off the line or handled by tight ends. Does not consistently play with leverage.
ANALYSIS: Possessing solid size/speed numbers and growth potential, Murphy has the makings of a backup defensive end for a conventional defense.
