Washington CB Byron Murphy Met With Four Teams

     

According to Aaron Wilson, Washington CB Byron Murphy has met with at least four teams during pre-draft visits. 

Murphy visited the Steelers, Chiefs and Panthers and also had dinner with the Cardinals. 

Murphy, 5-11 and 182 pounds, is seen as one of the better cornerbacks in the draft and could be the first one taken once the second half of the first round rolls around. 

In two seasons at Washington, Murphy recorded 74 tackles, one sack, two forced fumbles six interceptions and 20 pass defenses in 20 games. 

The Steelers have the No. 20 overall pick and Murphy would fill a need at cornerback for them. The Chiefs pick No. 29 and also have a void in the secondary. 

While the Panthers hold the No. 16 pick in the first round, they likely would only consider Murphy in a trade back or if he fell to them in the second round.

The Cardinals could consider Murphy if available with the No. 33 overall pick.
