Ingram & Murphy Taken on Day Two of NFL Draft
Two more former Gator football players were taken on Day 2 of the NFL Draft on Sunday as wide receiver Louis Murphy was tabbed in the fourth round by the Oakland Raiders and the Philadelphia Eagles made tight end Cornelius Ingram a fifth-round selection.
Murphy and Ingram join wide receiver Percy Harvin in the NFL ranks after the Minnesota Vikings drafted Harvin with the 22nd-overall pick on Saturday.
This year’s NFL Draft marks the first in which the Gators have had two wideouts drafted since 2002 when Jabar Gaffney (2nd round, Houston Texans) and Reche Caldwell (2nd round, San Diego Chargers) were drafted.
Murphy, the 124th-overall selection in the draft, is the first UF football player taken by Oakland since offensive tackle Mo Collins was a first-round pick for the Raiders in 1998. With the selection of Harvin and Murphy this weekend, Florida has had 18 wide receivers drafted in the past 16 years.
