FSU’s Nyqwan Murray gets NFL shot, second chance with Seattle Seahawks

Take two for Noonie.

NCAA Football: Wake Forest at Florida State Glenn Beil-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State’s Nyqwan Murray wasn’t selected during the 2019 NFL Draft, but it didn’t take long for him to find a professional opportunity. “Noonie” Murray was the first of FSU’s undrafted free agents to find a new home, as he’s signed with the Seattle Seahawks.

Murray was a rather volatile figure in Tallahassee, with his potential and explosiveness typically paralleled by his inconsistency.

A native of Orlando, Murray (5’10, 191) tied Auden Tate as the Seminoles’ reception leader in 2017, and he led the ’Noles in catches in 2018. His biggest opponent has always been himself, as Murray has taken plays off in the past, not always playing with great effort. He could evolve into a serviceable slot receiver at the next level, but he’ll need to up his focus. Being a professional entails more than just talent; and logging a 4.63 40 doesn’t provide much margin for error.

Murray follows Demarcus Christmas to Seattle, as the latter was drafted by the Seahawks in the sixth round of the draft. He’ll join a long list of Seminoles trying to make it in the league after going undrafted, and you can keep up with all of FSU’s UFAs here.
