Diamond Talk: Kyle Murphy, OL, University of Rhode Island | Best Pancakes In Rhode Island

I am a big fan of Kyle Murphy from Rhode Island. The kid is a beast on the offensive line and he is one of the most versatile players in college football. He has played all over the offensive line and NFL teams love versatility and smarts. If you add in the fact that he is 6040 and 300 plus pounds and strong as an ox, NFL teams are drooling over him as a prospect.

Before Rhode Island, Murphy was a four year starter at left tackle in high school, but do you know what is more impressive? The kid was a captain of his basketball team, this young man was a B-Baller which means he has good foot work and is nimble, look at his film.

As a true freshman at URI, Murphy appeared in 10 games but started three. His first career start was at left guard against James Madison.

In his second year, he came into his own. He started all 11 games, 6 at left guard and 5 at right tackle. He has also played center a couple games when Dwayne Scott had to leave briefly with injuries. This kid is a freak, and he is going to get a shot from the NFL because he can play all five positions on the offensive line.

When you watch his film above, you see him pancaking his guys. You see him dropping the defensive ends, finishing his blocks and opening holes you can drive a car through. It is real simple, at the end of the day there may not be a more verastile player in the draft on the O-Line. He is the best pancaker in Rhode Island and he will get a shot with an NFL team come April.
