It did not take long.

The Arizona Cardinals have taken Washington Huskies cornerback Byron Murphy.

The local high school kid from Saguaro High School in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Murphy is one of the most physical and hard nosed corners in the draft. He can lineup outside or lineup in the slot.

Murphy is a physical, instinctive, ball hawk. He understands how to make plays on the ball, something that the Cardinals need inside, but he has the game to eventually take over outside if need be.

One of the most impressive things about Murphy is his willingness to stick his nose in and help against the run.

Murphy will provide the Arizona Cardinals an opportunity of flexibility to play corner or even safety and someone who could be a true number one corner in the draft.

Murphy is also a local kid, someone who wants to be here and wants to build something special.

How would you grade the pick of Byron Murphy.
