Keim: Yeah, I heard that this summer, too, from others in the organization. I think he has a lot of skill in this area and has an excellent feel for how to rush. He's not explosive, so he's not always going to wow anyone. But he does know how to rush with leverage and he does work on setting up blockers and tries to have a plan. He works well going inside and, in college, had a spin move (which I've seen work sometimes in practice and not so well other times). Orakpo was just about trying to bullrush (most of the time) or trying to get low and wide. Ryan Kerrigan does not have the same assortment of moves but is just relentless and constantly tries to learn.

He can be so nonchalant and a good guy, but he still has the amount of focus that he's had over the last nine or 10 years. It's something you look up to, something you want, something you aspire to. I've also always been a big John Elway fan.

(Arian Foster was second with 615). Just as impressive is the fact that Murray, 26, is second in the league in yards after contact per attempt (2.9), according to He also runs behind one of the league's better offensive lines, a unit anchored by Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith. "You have to do a great job tackling," defensive coordinator Jim Haslett said of Murray. "Not too many people tackle him one-on-one. You need two or three people to bring him down."
