When the 2013 NFL Draft ended on Saturday evening, the Baltimore Ravens quickly scattered to sign their targeted undrafted free agents.
One of their targets was Ole Miss basketball player Murphy Holloway. The 6’7, 250 pound forward signed a deal with the Ravens on Saturday despite the fact he hasn’t played football since his sophomore year of high school.
He was planning to enter the NBA, however concerns about his fit in the league led some to believe that his immense athleticism could lead to him having success in the NFL.
Per the request of scouts, Holloway decided to change his career path, and he is now set on making it in the NFL as a tight end. He just began his football training recently after spending two weeks at an NBA camp in Virginia.
