positive about going pro early

Jake Murphy positive about going pro early

"I think I can fit in as a slot Tom Brady Super Bowl Jersey receiving tight end, but I can also move around and be an H back," he said. "That's definitely a positive for me."

The 24 year old decided to chase the NFL this year instead of returning for his senior season, and so far he sees signs that it was the right choice. Although the draft can be an unpredictable and fickle beast, Murphy said he's yet to hear feedback that he'll go undrafted. He's expecting to be picked on Saturday.

Brother Shawn Murphy, a Utah State alum who has played for the Dolphins, Bucs, Panthers and Broncos in his NFL career, has given him an idea of what to expect. And there's always dad though Dale Murphy never went to NFL mini camps, the six time Atlanta Braves all star has plenty of advice to dispense.

"He can definitely relate to Rob Gronkowski Super Bowl XLIX Jersey it, the uncertainty of the process," Jake Murphy said. "You have to perform to justify your pick, and it just comes down to putting in extra work."

Murphy's done a lot of that work at John Madsen Performance in Sandy with fellow Ute Karl Williams and a host of others. He's worked out for a few teams, and done a handful of interviews to convince scouts he'll be able to quickly grasp an NFL offense.

Among current NFL players, Murphy thinks he shares some traits with a player that some Ute fans might not want to hear: "I think Dennis Pitta resembles what I want to do. There's some Tom Brady Super Bowl XLIX Jersey similarities there with our receiving skills."

Until the draft, Murphy will be spending time with his family in American Fork. That's probably his plan for the draft itself, as well. He's not sure when his wife, Arianne Murphy, and year old daughter Remi will be able to join him in Rob Gronkowski Super Bowl 49 Jersey a new city. He's anticipating going almost right away after he gets drafted or picked up as a free agent.

For patriotsofficialnflauthentic.com/DARRELLE_REVIS_SUPER_BOWL_JERSEY.html this last week, he'll try to soak up some family time in between the madness of draft week.
