Kenneth Murray. 2. player. 54. Pick Analysis. Linebacker. Oklahoma. Scouting Report

If Kenneth Murray’s time at Oklahoma over the last three seasons is any indication, the linebacker could one day develop into one of the top players at the position in the NFL over the next couple of years.

But before jumping too far down the road since Murray has yet to even be selected by a team, the Sooners star defender needs to show teams he’s worth the hype.

Once again, it can’t be said enough just how much help the Eagles need at the linebacker position this offseason, even after adding Jatavis Brown through free agency.

Murray has the kind of length and athletic ability to cause all sorts of problems for opponents, as his game film will show.

Not to mention, Murray has proven to be a consistent tackler, which clearly was a concern for some of the other defenders already mentioned on this list, providing the Eagles with yet another reason to consider adding him on defense at linebacker.

Philadelphia can’t stress it enough just how important the play on the defensive side of the football is going to be in 2020 with all of the offensive power from the other three teams within the division.

And while someone like Murray isn’t going to solve all the issues the Eagles dealt with, at least his presence would be another step in the right direction.
