2014 NFL Draft Grade: Washington Redskins Select Trent Murphy, DE/LB, Stanford


With the 47th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Washington Redskins have selected Stanford DE/LB Trent Murphy.

This is a curious pick on a number of levels, the least of which being Murphy was not projected to go in the 2nd round.

The Redskins also have much more pressing needs elsewhere, but this is a guy that has drawn some hype at times this year. He is an aggressive defender with size and will bring some nastiness to that Washington defense.

Grade: C
