Scout report

Myles Murphy is an edge rusher with great size, speed and power. He showed an improved ability to stack and throw off blockers in 2021. The Georgia native needs to build more of a pass-rush plan and develop an inside counter for when his initial rush is stopped. He does a good job of influencing pass lanes when his rush doesn’t make it home.

Strengths

  • Natural athlete with great size and speed
  • Affects overtaking lanes when the rush doesn’t make it home
  • Quickly out of control, does a good job shooting gaps
  • Good power leads to the ability to convert speed into power

Weak points

  • Must develop pass rush moves and make more of a plan
  • Occasionally works too deep in his pass rush
  • Played with less urgency, regressed from 2021 to 2022
