Overview

If you are looking for a depth 3-tech or 5-tech, Larrell Murchison has to be on your shortlist. While there are some athletic issues, he never gives up and gives 110% every single play. The traits are lacking, but he has the tools, mentality, and toughness to be a long-lasting player in the NFL. 

Murchison's motor always keeps chugging and has seen him pick up a large number of high-impact stats, and that does translate to the NFL for a depth piece on the defensive line. He may not be a starter option, which hurts his value, but a reliable sub piece is still plenty valuable.
