St. Louis Rams Select Jerome Murphy, CB USF

The Rams selected CB Jerome Murphy a CB from USF with the 65th overall pick in the 3rd round of the 2010 NFL draft. Murphy is a 6'195 lb press corner out of the Big East conference.

From NFL.com - Murphy was a productive two-year starter for the Bulls. He is a tall, lean secondary defender with deceptive strength. He is a tough hardnosed perimeter defender who lacks great quickness and speed to play out on an island in man coverage's. Murphy is a physical corner who can jam and reroute receivers off the line of scrimmage and he's a solid run support defender. He is an instinctive player who leverages the ball well in coverage as well as maintaining proper body positioning defending the run. He can be inconsistent in block protection and wrapping up in the open field, but he is very aggressive for the cornerback position. Murphy is a good football player who has some limitations but should contribute as a rookie in a Cover 2 defensive scheme.
