Continuing Redskins Blog’s mini-series of highlighting some of the drafted rookies top collegiate moments is video of Trent Murphy‘s final season at Stanford.

There’s those that get an occasional sack here or there or a pass defensed and then there’s Trent Murphy–Mr. Do It All.

Can’t nobody stop him.

As a redshirt senior, Murphy recorded 15 sacks, most in Division I, en route to the following postseason accolades:

Consensus All-American, Walter Camp All-America first team, AFCA All-America first team, FWAA All-America first team, Sporting News All-America first team, Associated Press All-America second team, CBSSports.com All-America second team, SI.com All-America first team, ESPN.com All-America first team, USA Today All-America second team, Athlon Sports All-America second team, Phil Steele All-America first team, Sporting News All-Pac-12, All-Pac-12 first team, Athlon Sports All-Pac-12 first team, ESPN.com All-Pac-12, Phil Steele All-Pac-12 first team.

Did you catch all of that? Do you need a translation?

Translation=this guy has a high-motor and brings it. Every. Single. Day.

Here’s his complete senior season stat line courtesy NCAA:



Murphy will be in great hands when he hits the practice field and film room at Redskins Park. He’ll learn from two Pro Bowlers, Ryan Kerrigan and Brian Orakpo, and an excellent position coach in NFL lifer Brian Baker.

The soon-to-be rookie said it was ‘pretty exciting‘ that the trio will be leaders he can lean on throughout his transition to the professional game.

“For me just to be able to learn from a couple of guys like that and to see two guys who have been successful at this position and how they do it and how they teach it, everything like that,” he said. “I am pretty excited and hopefully I can find a role into that rotation.”

    Murphy has the potential to be better than either Orakpo or Kerrigan as a pass rusher…HOWEVER…it always seems that the highest paid player gets more opportunity so Rak is going to start regardless.

    I hope Haslett puts together a NASCAR package and moves Kerrigan inside on passing downs and brings in Murphy. Murphy, Kerrigan, Hatcher and Orakpo lining up together is a pretty fearsome foursome.
