Clemson DE Myles Murphy visits Texans

Clemson edge rusher Myles Murphy, a first-round draft target, has visits this week with the Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cincinnati Bengals and Atlanta Falcons, according to a league source.

The 6-foot-5, 268-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 4.51 seconds at his Pro Day workout and bench pressed 225 pounds 25 times and a 7.22 three-cone drill with a 31-inch vertical leap.

A native of Powder Springs, Ga., and a prep All-American, he had 6 1/2 sacks last season with 40 tackles, 11 for losses and two pass breakups in 11 starts. In 2021, Murphy had seven sacks and 14 tackles for losses with two forced fumbles.

He was a first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection.

He attended the same high school (Hillgrove) as NFL players Bradley Chubb, Kenyan Drake and Evan Engram

Murphy had two sacks and seven tackles in his first game as a freshman at Clemson and finished with four sacks, 41 tackles and three forced fumbles that year.
