Stanford's Murphy, Paly grad Adams selected in NFL Draft

 

Stanford's Trent Murphy and Palo Alto High graduate Davante Adams are headed to professional football teams following their selections in the NFL Draft on Friday. Both players were chosen in the second round.

Murphy was selected 47th overall by the Washington Redskins. He was the 15th pick of the second round and was the first Stanford player selected in the draft.

"I'm absolutely speechless," Murphy said. "I had a team visit out there and I couldn't be more excited and more thrilled to be part of the organization and the community.

"I'd like to thank everyone for all of their support, and I'm ready to get back to work."

Adams, who led the nation with 24 touchdowns, 131 receptions and set a Fresno State record with 1,718 receiving yards, was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the 53rd overall pick. He went No. 21 in the second round.
