1. Kenneth Murray, Oklahoma 6-2, 234 (1)
Why He’s Here On The List: A volume tackler over his three years at OU – coming up with 325 stops and 36 tackles for loss – he’s been through the wars. A veteran leader, he knows how to get to the ball, an he’s got the wheels and athleticism to get there. No, he might not do enough when the ball is in the air, but he’s the athlete everyone is going to want for the position.

Bottom Line: The guy is cut out of granite – he looks like he has negative body fat. He’s as maxed out as can be on his frame, but bulk is good enough. He’s got the wheels and the fire to be an almost instant all-star performer who’ll fill up the stat-sheet. However, he has to look the part in pass coverage drills.
