Mumphery is a team leader and someone who apparently got a lot of love from his collegiate coaching staff. As a player, he has good hands and will lay out for any ball he has to. He ran a 4.54 at the combine, but that speed does not always show up on tape. This leads to questions about his overall stamina and fitness.

His chances went down this season, but he still managed to total 495 yards. He has very good body control when attempting a catch going out-of-bounds against the sideline.

Mumphery will consistently fight for yards. This is best shown by this touchdown against Ohio State, where he bounces off multiple defenders in the redzone.


Mumphery is not the quickest receiver available late in the draft — there’s no question his speed will be listed as a weakness.

He just doesn’t show the speed exhibited at the combine consistently in his film. He doesn’t get much separation against defenders, which forces him to make tight, contested catches. When he can’t make wide enough separation, turnovers are almost guaranteed. His route running also needs to be sharpened in order to succeed at the next level.


Was the recipient of Michigan State University Football Player Association’s Community Service and Outreach Award for the second straight year; won the Clarence Underwood Sportsmanship Award; was named Michigan State University’s Big-Ten Sportsmanship Award recipient.

Draft Projection: Mumphery is going to be viewed as a late Day Three prospect. Ultimately, he could be a heavily-discussed UDFA once the Draft closes.
