Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BYRON MURPHY: Washington, 5106 190 4.53. Two year starter from Scottsdale, AZ. Elite corner prospect with experience in a variety of coverage and technique showing the ability to excel in all phases. Quick twitch athlete with outstanding footwork. Remarkable short space redirection skill and quickness mirroring cuts in man-to-man. Disrupts routes in press coverage with off-hand jam. Has the functional speed to play vertical routes up the field and can cut off route breaks. Can lock out and mirror a receiver in man cover to the point quarterbacks ignore his side. Skilled at breaking up passes when in phase. Gets his head around and can find the ball. Has good hands for the interception and gets to the high point. Very aware zone player both as a hard corner and deep outside third player. Plays with good pacing on his pedal and maintains a proper cushion. Quickly recognizes route combinations and is sudden reacting on the throw. As a hard corner closes voids well and can play under the deep routes and close on the flat. Physical playing the run with good take on ability. Solid fundamental tackling skill and consistently makes plays in space. Does not shy away from contact. More quick than fast and recovery speed is average. Occasionally misses a tackle by being too aggressive and not gathering. While an outstanding college corner, there is slight concern how his length and extended speed will play at the next level. That said his skill set is outstanding in a variety of techniques and he should be a factor immediately. Has kick coverage potential. 2018 stats: 58 T, 4 TFL, 13 PBU, 1 FF, 4 INT (1 TD). BTR:left 4.60, right 4.68. OSR:23/33. First/second round. (A-30 1/8, H-8 7/ 8, VJ-36.5, SS-DNP).
