Gators WR Murphy Performs Well In WR Workout

INDIANAPOLIS – For a couple of reasons, Sunday is one of the more intriguing days here at the NFL Scouting Combine.
First, it’s the day the quarterbacks and receivers workout; second it’s the day the NFL allows the media – a few of us anyway - to take watch the workouts.
I was among a group of about a dozen reporters allowed to watch the second of two groups of QB and WRs work out.
The group I watched consisted of QBs Matt Stafford (Georgia), Mark Sanchez (USC) and John Parker Wilson (Alabama) and WRs Jeremy Maclin (Missouri), Mohamed Massaquoi (Georgia) and Louis Murphy (Florida).
Among the quarterbacks, Sanchez looked real good. John Paker Wilson did not. Sanchez made all his throw accurately while Wilson struggled mightily to find his receivers.
The wideouts were a mixed bag but Murphy faired very well. He ran a 4.36 40, which was among the best in his group, ran good routes and consistently made good catches away from his body.
He proved himself to be a pretty tough, too, as he twice appeared to tweak either an ankle, knee or calf (we couldn’t really tell which) only to come back and continue the workout, which he completed without missing a drill.
Another interesting note from the workout: Bucs coach Raheem Morris watched the drills from a suite located on the 30-yard line. Standing next to him virtually the entire time was Steelers coach Mike Tomlin.
