Shawn Murphy

Strengths: Violent Tackler, Prototypical Size, Knows Where To Be In Zone Coverage, Blitzes With Good Closing Speed

Weaknesses: Needs To Continue Improving Coverage Skills

Evaluation: Murphy is one of the hardest hitting linebackers in the country. He plays with a violent mindset and is always looking to make big hits on ball carriers. He has prototypical size for the inside linebacker position at at 6-foot-2 and 222 pounds. He has continued to fill out his fame and looks college ready at the moment. He has grown as a coverage linebacker and looks really good in zone coverage. He knows where he needs to be and moves with purpose. He will still need to grow in this area and get better at turning and running with wide receivers and running back down the field in man-to-man situations. Murphy is a vicious blitzer who embraces contact. He knows how to take on blocks, shed them and get to the football.
