Murphy, a 6-foot-2, 305-pounder, quickly reunited with Martin in San Diego.
A big, strong lineman with a physical style of play and quick footwork, he switched from defensive tackle following his freshman year to offensive guard. And he flourished, earning All-ACC honors following his final season in 2005.
The Chargers have found success with converted defensive linemen, preferring the aggressive nature they possess from playing on the defensive side of the ball.
Honored by his teammates as the hardest worker and most team-oriented, Murphy fits the bill for the type of character players that the Chargers adore.
The hope is his leadership ability turns into success on the field.
We will continue to monitor undrafted additions and will have an exclusive with Jason Murphy over the next few days.
