  • Lydon Murtha T/Nebraska

    Highly impressive showing thus far at the combine.

    6'7 306
    7.05 cone
    25 reps
    35 inch vert
    4.89 forty

    One of the best offensive lineman athlete's in the last ten years? If not #1?
    Jamon Meredith looks to be a very good athlete as well.

    He was quite the player out of highschool, what happened at Nebraska?

      I remember seeing an early 2009 mock draft last year that had the Titans taking him in the top half of round one. What a ******* joke. We don't even need an OT.

        That's sort of off topic, i'm wondering if the guy is anywhere near as good as his combine numbers.

          Yeah I know. That's the only time Lydon Murtha has impacted my life though so that's all I really had to add. I'm done in this thread now. lol

            I think if he finds a home in one of the ZBS, he could develop. But he honestly just plays so soft, it would be hard for him to be in most schemes.

              I think his height may not allow ZBS teams to take him. I know the Packers don't like their linemen to be taller then 6'4 because of leverage.

                I remember a poster talking about him earlier in the year in another thread. They said that he was a ridiculous athlete and that he'd test well but that he played softly and was kind of a jerk.

                  He's had injury problems and never played anywhere near the level these numbers suggest. I'm a diehard Nebraska fan, and I'd be hard pressed to draft him before the 5th round. Those are some real good numbers, though. Too bad he's been so...mediocre?...at Nebraska.

                    Late rounder to UDFA pretty much sums it up.

                      That is a good point, which also may stop him from fitting well anywhere.

                        Perfect TE for the Ravens unbalanced lines lol. As long as he's only in on run plays...

                          Then why did they draft a 6-7 guy last year?

                          It's not just about height if you have the ability to bend.

                            As I said in another thread -- looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane. He's more worried about looking good than actually playing football. At one point in his career the coaches asked him to put on weight (that he could obviously easily carry) and he refused because he did not want to lose his abs. Yeah, the kid has a six pack even at his enormous size.

                            Even though he is athletic, he only had success at RT in his college career. He started his college career at LT and looked like a complete bust. Moved to RT during his sophomore year and had success, albeit limited. He at least looked like a player there. Attempted to move back to LT this past spring and was absolutely owned there the entire time before moving back. Got hurt and missed a good bit of his senior season.

                            Unless he gets over his pretty boy attitude and develops a bit of a mean streak, he will never be more that backup material.

                            Now Matt Slauson may be the man to lookout for on the Nebraska line. Dude is a mauler. Just need to watch his weight because he has ballooned up to 350+ in the past.

                              Murtha could easily weigh 335 and still run under a 5.0 flat. I bet he barely trained for the combine as is. I think he's the most athletic lineman I've seen in recent memory, and that includes Joe Thomas and Staley.
