The Raiders selected Louis Murphy out of Florida with the first of two picks in the fourth round.
According to the Pro Football Weekly Draft Guide, Murphy “has world class speed and can instantly accelerate off the line. Flies by defensive backs and can separate with ease. Flashes some play-making ability.”
As for the negatives, Murphy “played in a spread offense which hasn’t translated to the pro game and is an inconsistent catcher.”
Is also a track athlete.
