Granted I didn't see the entire game. Stat-wise too he compares well with Geno. See attached.
Murray is a legit 6" foot even. He has a strong arm and that offense doesn't do him alot of favors but his upside isn't that high, IMO.
And no, even if Teo is what they say, he isn't worth a top 5 pick. Look around the league at other 34 teams and look who plays the spot he would play here on our D.
You absolutely don't need a great high draft pick guy there to be successful.
And stat wise, Murray isn't close to Geno.
