Defendant #1: DeMarco Murray (continued)
The Defense claims, that if not for those various injuries, Murray would have been a 1,000 yard rusher in his first two seasons in the NFL. Furthermore, Murray is unable to block for himself. The lack of offensive line talent (or a fullback) means smaller holes and less running room. Murray is also an underrated pass catcher. This season alone he’s racked up 13 receptions for 88 yards in two games. The defense believes, if given the chance, Murray could prove himself to be a top-tier running back in the NFL. The Defense rests.
