Both signed 4 year deals.  Don't know terms of Selvie deal, but Murphy got a $1 million signing bonus, $2.7 million total package.

Murphy getting $1M tells me our d-back coaching was lousy.  He looked like a chump in our 'system'.

A little early to be making those determinations.

how?

he had a terrible senior year... you can't tell me NFL GMs drafted him based upon his tape at USF.

dude is a physical presence at CB, he can be coached to be a great player.

LOL .... I know I should be immune to this by now but it still amuses the heck out of me when message board "experts" think they know more than college, and now pro, coaches. Murph tied for the team lead in picks and fumbles recovered and led the team in unassisted tackles and broken up passes yet you consider that a "terrible" year and think NFL GM's couldn't have possibly been impressed by his tapes. Fact is there were 29 cb's drafted after him and I'm sure more than a few had a "physical presence" at the position. I'm sure his "physical presence" played a part in his getting drafted but I'd be willing to bet his skill work on the field played a much bigger part ... Here's hoping his replacement has just as "terrible" a year for us.

How can anyone say DB coaching has been lousy?  Funny how that same bad coaching has Nate Allen in a position to be a starter as a rookie. Plus didn't Murphy get the same coaching for the first 3 years in our program that Jenkins received?

Probably not since they had different coaches when they started at USF.

apparently you missed all the wide receivers running by him for touchdowns... or those pointless flags that he was called for.

murphy is an awesome athlete and will be a great corner in the NFL... i just dont think he was very good for USF his senior year... i dont think im the only one with this viewpoint.

"No. 65: Jerome Murphy, CB, South Florida to St. Louis: Here is proof that college production isn't always the most important thing to NFL scouts. Murphy struggled against some of the Big East's better receivers, but he has great physical tools and hopefully will find his niche in the pros. "
