Terrence Murphy School: Texas A&M
HT: 6-1 WT: 202 40: 4.45 Year: 4Sr

Bio: All-Conference selection as a senior after posting 51/682/3. Led the team in receiving as a junior registering 44/762 when he originally won All-League honors.

Positives: Fluid, big-play receiver with excellent size/speed numbers. Solid route runner who gets separation from opponents, displays good focus and consistent hands. Adjusts to the errant throw, lays out for the tough grab and snatches the pass away from his frame. Elusive running after the reception, has a burst of speed and works to pick up positive yardage. Positions himself against defenders to make the reception and fights to get separation. Beats opponents in a foot race, tracks the deep throw and easily adjusts running full speed. Occasionally used as a kick returner throughout college.

Negatives: Marginal as a downfield blocker. Has difficulty battling stronger opponents. Analysis: A tough, hard-working prospect with top athleticism, Murphy has all the intangibles one wants in a first round choice. That being the case, he has never been overly productive nor really stood out as the "go-to guy" in college. Offers a high upside, which will get him selected during the initial 45 choices.
