You can keep up with all the reported Kansas City Chiefs pre-draft visits and workouts with our draft prospect and workout tracker. On Monday, we added another name to it: Washington cornerback Byron Murphy.

Our visit disclaimer: There are pre-draft visits and there are workouts. Players that visit the Chiefs’ facility do not physically work out — those are just visits where prospects meet the coaching staff and/or front office, as well as go through a physical. The Chiefs can work a player out someplace else, such as before or after their pro day on campus. Teams are allowed 30 players to visit their facility.

Let’s take a look.

Washington cornerback Byron Murphy

Just 5 feet 11 and 182 pounds, Murphy decided to forego his final two years of eligibility with the Huskies and declare for the NFL Draft. Murphy was a standout wide receiver and cornerback at his suburban Phoenix high school and redshirted in 2016.

A foot injury caused him to miss seven games of freshman season, but he still collected a pair of interceptions, 16 tackles (13 solo) including three tackles for loss, plus a sack, a forced fumble and seven passed defensed in six games. In his 13-game sophomore campaign, he had four picks (including one for a touchdown), 58 tackles (37 solo) with four tackles for loss, a forced fumble and 13 passes defensed.

He was named MVP in the 2018 Pac-12 championship game after intercepting two passes and returning one of them for a touchdown.

Here are some highlights.
