Washington Huskies CB Byron Murphy entering NFL draft

Washington Huskies cornerback Byron Murphy will enter the NFL draft, he announced Monday.

Murphy thanked his coaches, teammates, family and Washington fans in a Twitter post announcing his decision.

A potential first-round pick, Murphy is ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr.’s No. 3-ranked draft-eligible cornerback.

After redshirting in 2016 and starting the past two seasons, Murphy had two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Murphy was a first-team All-Pac-12 selection this season and the MVP of the Pac-12 championship game, when he returned an interception for a game-winning touchdown against Utah.

In two seasons, Murphy, a native of Scottsdale, Arizona, started 20 games and intercepted seven passes. He missed seven games in 2017 due to a fractured bone in his foot.
