Murray is a very pro-ready type of prospect because of his great straight line speed, vision to see the cutback lane, and his excellent receiving skills out of the backfield. He is a much better interior runner than he is given credit for and also brings added kick return ability to the table.
Injuries have dogged Murray throughout his career with a dislocated knee cap in 2007, a torn hamstring in 2008, and various injuries in 2009 and 2010.Â While Murray has missed some time each season, he has seen a lot of action during his collegiate career.
Murray will contribute right away in a third down or complimentary role and also has the potential to be the lead back for a team due to his all around game.Â He is a very willing tough pass blocker and a student of the game with the ability to pickup even the most complex offense.
Some scouts see him making a living as a Reggie Bush type of player but heâ€™s capable of so much more than that with his ability to take runs inside and break them outside.Â He has great acceleration and burst through the hole but isn’t overly elusive in the open field with his narrow hips.
Murray is a very fiery runner that always gives the extra effort you like to see but he’s much more physical that people give him credit for, always ready to lower his shoulder and fight for yards.Â If Murray can stay healthy, he will make an instant impact in the NFL because of his terrific all around game.
