East Texan Could Get Early Call In NFL Draft

This weekend, thousands of hopeful college students will be watching the world's greatest job fair. The NFL Draft. And as usual, some East Texans will be expecting to hear their names called.  One of them will be Texas A&M's Terrence Murphy, the pride of Chapel Hill high school. Four years as an Aggie, Murphy had more than 2600 yards in his career as a wide receiver, ESPN analysts are predicting Murphy to go in the second round. A&M head coach Dennis Franchione says Terrence is the kind of guy NFL scouts love.

"Terrence has had a great career at Texas A&A, the all-time leading receiver, great work ethic, fine person," said Franchione. "I have no doubt that he'll have a great career on Sunday after Texas A&M now."

Murphy's got the total package, he was All-Big 12 last year, and also a two-time all-academic selection.
