CBS Sports likes the size Ehinger brings to the table.

Parker has "outstanding size, good feet and plays hard," Jamie Newberg and Dane Brugler wrote. "[He] plays through the whistle on each and every down. Loads of experience and was basically a four-year starter, first at tackle and then sliding inside to guard."

In 2015, Murray played and started in all 13 games, made 66 tackles (47 solo), 4.0 tackles for loss, broke up 7 passes and recorded an interception.

Murray is the first Big 10 player Dorsey has drafted for the Kansas City Chiefs.

The 2016 NFL Draft marked John Dorsey's fourth with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Murray is the first player Dorsey has drafted from the Big 10 conference.

Murray told ESPN's Josh Moyer that he's a "big nerd" when it comes to pokemon.

Here is an excerpt from the interview:

*Q: Fill in the blank for me, Eric. I'm a big nerd when it comes to ____.*

*Eric Murray: "Pokemon and anime. For the most part, it's just really an escape. I guess, everybody always has a dream of being a superhero and that's what, mostly, anime is -- like the Japanese cartoons, there's a lot of supernatural fiction and stuff like that."*

Later in the interview, Murray reveals he owns a collection of 30 Pokémon figurines.

Robinson amassed 325 receptions for 4,699 yards receiving and 43 touchdowns receiving in his career.

NFL.com Lance Zierlein suggests Robinson's talent "jumps off the tape."

Robinson has "electric vertical talent that can make cornerbacks re­think their coverage plans," Zierlein wrote. "[He] has shake at the line of scrimmage to free himself against press coverage and has adequate ball-tracking skills. Graceful, flexible athlete with instant turbo acceleration. Has ability to hit the home run after the catch. Races off the line and forced cornerbacks into retreat opening easy comeback catches. Has talent and ability to make a living outside or from the slot."
