As a pass rusher, he added 20 total pressures, which included 12 QB hurries, 3 QB hits, and a solid a solid 5 sacks on the season.

As a sophomore for the Tigers in 2021 Murphy played in 13 games and took part in 552 snaps for the Tigers. He recorded 21 tackles, 9 assists, while adding 22 stops. As a pass rusher, he chalked up 42 total pressures, and 33 QB hurries, no QB hits, and an excellent 9 sacks during the year.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Murphy can also win going speed-to-power, with the leg drive to push blockers back.
  • A savvy, versatile and instinctive edge rusher who did a little bit of everything, Murphy was especially effective getting to the quarterback.
  • He has a lethal spin move and the pure speed to close quickly.
  • Impressive athletic skills -- Made Bruce Feldman's 'Freaks List' at number 3. He wrote: "The 6-5, 275-pound junior is viewed by NFL scouts as a “significantly better player” than former Tiger Clelin Ferrell, who went fourth overall in the 2019 draft. Murphy bench-presses 405 pounds, power-cleans 335, and deadlifts 505. He also has vertical-jumped 35 inches, broad-jumped 10 feet and consistently clocked in the high 4.5s in the 40"
  • Murphy has long arms and displays good power in his hands, which gives him the ability to slip off blocks. As a run defender, he has the speed to chase down ball carriers in pursuit.
  • His spin move is already NFL-caliber, and he displays a very good motor.
  • His hand use is excellent; he’s strong in the upper body and consistently swats away blockers.
  • Possesses the length and power to ward off offensive tackles.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Plays tall and gets upright off the snap. Wins with upper-body strength and needs to focus on leverage.
  • Murphy struggles to shed blockers and doesn’t show ideal lateral movement skills. He also needs to make better use of his length and hands in the pass rush.
  • He remains a bit raw, as Murphy is inconsistent with his hand use and lacks violence in his hands
