USF CB Murphy goes to Rams in third round



Three rounds and three picks for USF football, as cornerback Jerome Murphy went to the Rams with the opening pick of the third round Friday night.

USF had just three players taken in the first three rounds of the draft before this year -- they've matched that total in the past two days, with first-rounder Jason Pierre-Paul, second-rounder Nate Allen and Murphy.

Murphy was the eighth cornerback taken, and nearly stayed in Tampa -- the Bucs, two picks later, chose a cornerback in Vanderbilt's Myron Lewis.
