Draft Scout Tyler Murphy News
08/25/15 - Undrafted rookie WRs Tyler Murphy and Shakim Phillips caught touchdown passes in Sunday's preseason game against Green Bay to help the Steelers win. They were teammates at Boston College. Murphy was the quarterback, Phillips a receiver. Today, they are competing for a roster spot as receivers with the Steelers.
"It's more of a friendly competition," Murphy said. "We're just trying to push each other to get better, help each other study. So we are just trying to help each other put good things on tape, just trying to get better every day."
05/25/15 - WR Tyler Murphy was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Steelers on May 8.
11/03/14 - Tyler Murphy threw for two touchdowns and put Virginia Tech away with a 57-yard scoring run with 2:59 remaining Saturday as Boston College beat the Hokies 33-31 and became bowl eligible. Murphy connected on scoring throws of eight yards to Charlie Callinan and two yards to Marcus Outlow for the Eagles (6-3, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who led 26-24 until Murphy broke free on a third-and-10 run and sprinted up the middle and untouched for the touchdown that put the game away. The loss was the third in a row for Virginia Tech (4-5, 1-4) and its fourth in six games at home.
Murphy also became the third quarterback to run for more than 100 yards against the Hokies' defense this season, gaining 122 yards on 18 carries. Georgia Tech's Justin Thomas (165) and Pittsburgh's Chad Voytik (118) also did it, and then Miami ran for 364 yards against that same unit last Thursday night. Murphy's run wiped away what looked like an improbable comeback, or at least a chance at one. The Hokies trailed 23-10 before a fake punt kick-started their offense. - AP Sports
10/28/14 - Jon Hilliman rushed for 101 yards and two touchdowns, and Boston College held on to beat Wake Forest 23-17 on Saturday. Tyler Murphy finished 11 of 15 for 165 yards with a 37-yard touchdown pass to Shakim Phillips while Hilliman had touchdown runs of 1 and 33 yards for the Eagles (5-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). They nearly blew a 23-3 lead in the fourth quarter and didn't completely put the pesky Demon Deacons away until Justin Simmons' late interception. John Wolford was 22 of 30 for 242 yards for Wake Forest (2-6, 0-3), and receiver E.J. Scott and Isaiah Robinson had short touchdown runs about 1½ minutes apart in the fourth before the Demon Deacons got the ball back with 2½ minutes left in a one-possession game. Simmons sealed it by picking off Wolford's sideline pass with 2:06 left. A Wake Forest offense that in the first half didn't advance further than its own 37 and managed just 6 total yards sure made things interesting in the second. - AP Sports
10/22/14 - Boston College was one dropped pass away from another upset victory. C.J. Davidson ran 32 yards for touchdown with 9:35 left and No. 24 Clemson stopped Boston College in the final minutes to beat the Eagles 17-13 on Saturday. The Eagles marched to the Clemson 26 and quarterback Tyler Murphy found reserve running back Tyler Rouse wide-open and streaking for the end zone with just over a minute to play, but he couldn't hold onto the ball near the 4. Three plays later, Murphy fired a pass over the middle that missed diving receiver Shakim Phillips near the goal line on fourth-and-15, ending the Eagles' hopes for their second big home win this season. BC beat then-No. 9 Southern California 37-31 last month.
Murphy, who averaged 118 yards rushing per game, ran for 55 yards on 13 carries and also completed 8 of 19 passes for 108 yards. The Tigers did a good job of containing him for most of the game until he broke free for a 43-yard scamper, moving the ball to Clemson's 38 with 3 minutes to play. The Eagles then converted a fourth-and-1 before Rouse bobbled the ball while he was a couple of yards ahead defensive back T.J. Green. "We had some plays we could have made," Murphy said. "We have to find ways to get better and make those plays." Clemson took over on downs and ran out the clock. "That quarterback, we had him hemmed up a couple times and he just slipped out," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. "He's done that against everybody." - AP Sports
