Positives: "Physically talented skill player who has flashed dominance in the past. Runs with a smooth style, has good quickness, and displays the ability to bounce around piles and make defenders miss. Possesses the agility to turn the corner, finds cutback lanes, and quickly gets through them. Keeps his feet moving on contact, runs with good lean, and shows a burst. Patient in all aspects and waits for blocks to develop, following them everywhere on the field. Terrific receiver who displays soft and strong hands. Gets vertical in a crowd, adjusts, and consistently comes away with the ball. Extends to make catches away from his frame."
Negatives: Does not play with an aggressive style. Runs a bit upright and takes a lot of heavy hits. Struggled with injuries throughout his college career.
Analysis: "Murray has displayed skill the past three seasons and at times makes scouts think he offers potential as a feature runner in the NFL. His penchant for injuries and occasional soft style will downgrade him, though Murray possesses all the skills necessary to produce at the next level if he plays up to his potential."
