Geez, they made it to the NFL for a reason, someone will catch the ball

I only trust Cooks. Toon took three years to show anythinga dn was still inconsistent. Colston is 32. Hill is a TE. Watson is a TE. As for Jones, Tanner, Saunders, Sneed they need to show more than what they showed last year.

And Morgan.....I just don't. We could be going a more simple approach where we run the ball and target Cooks as much as possible when passing. Also, those ps guys they need to make the roster, they haven't so far.

ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS Has the foot quickness and acceleration to make something out of nothing when called upon as a runner. Needs to play in space, but has quality traits for a runner, despite size. Has enough speed to turn the corner and hit a big run down the sideline. In passing game, mismatches inside 'backers with razor-sharp cuts to the sideline, creating easy throws for the quarterback. Looks to adjust his routes over the top of coverage if quarterback scrambles. Has excellent hands and concentration to finish a catch despite impending contact. Celebrated kick- and punt-return specialist with seven career return touchdowns at Missouri.

WEAKNESSES Needs to improve his reads and feel on stretch plays flowing outside. Small running back with limited amount of carries he can offer in a given game. Tends to float in space as a receiver rather than working back to the ball. Doesn't make the sharp, downhill cuts expected from him as a running back. Missed 2011 with a shoulder injury. He tries to get in the way as a pass blocker, but lacks bulk and strength to be trusted with blitz pickup on next level.

DRAFT PROJECTION Round 7 or priority free agent

NFL COMPARISON Dexter McCluster

BOTTOM LINE All-purpose running back with a lean frame and a big heart. Showed consistency of effort and production during his time at Missouri. His value as a runner is limited due to his size, but he has the potential to become a legitimate target out of the backfield and might warrant some reps in camp as a slot receiver. Murphy can step in and immediately challenge for the top spot as a kickoff and/or punt returner.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Marcus Murphy has Sproles-like receiving skills. Unfortunately for him, nobody has Sproles-like durability.
