Join Mike Goodpaster and Ty Robbins as they welcome NFL Draft Expert Sam teets to the show to break down each and every Bengals draft pick and look at how they will fit into the scheme of things with the Bengals.
Needless to say, Myles Murphy’s selection at No. 28 astounded everyone in the draft room. Duke Tobin and his staff held him in high regard, thinking this visit would mark his farewell visit a few weeks prior; surely this guy wouldn’t drop out of the top ten?
On Thursday night, when they acquired Murphy, senior defensive assistant Mark Duffner who works with edge players, rushed out to greet the scouts and head coach Zac Taylor – his famous rally cry being: “They must play us.” However, instead of making any dramatic statements during their acquisition, he remained calm.
“I made both proclamations – one was for Who Dey and Thank God,” Duffner says.
Duffner has quickly established himself as one of the premier Zoomers in the NFL when it comes to scouting edgers since COVID. But after all this time, Murphy became the first defensive lineman drafted by the Bengals since 2001t. Murphy went for a visit, which further confirmed what they already knew – quality all around!
Duffner saw on tape an edge-rusher who meets defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo’s versatility requirements: edges must sometimes serve as backers.
“Recoverability is the hallmark of success for me,” Duffner states. “He can recover quickly and regain play, with an optimal ratio between quickness, length, and speed.”
The Bengals then blew this draft away with getting a probable replacement for Tyler Boyd and a replacement for Joe Mixon, throw in a starting punter and some special teams depth and you have what shapes up to be a great draft. The guys will talk all of this and more!
