High School: Charlotte HS, Punta Gorda, Fla.
College: Florida Atlantic
Ht.: 5'11" / Wt.: 200 lbs

Drafted in the 3rd round (80th overall) by the Anaheim Angels in 2000 (signed for $440,000)
Murphy was the nation's top-rated college shortstop at the start of the year but struggled to hit even .250--the Mendoza line in college baseball. Scouts trace his struggles to poor pitch recognition and trouble with sliders, which ate him alive. He also was erratic in the field, where scouts questioned his hands and accuracy with his throws. His range, speed and arm strength are above-average, and as one of the best athletes in the draft, he should be chosen in the second round.
