UCF RB Latavius Murray has received interest from Oakland Raiders, Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals.

Murray is a bigger back, said to have weighed in at 225 pounds at his workouts in California, and hasn't had a fumble in 407 carries. "The defense's job is to get the ball away from you," Murray said. "My job was to make consistent progress, make plays and keep the ball for us. To win, you need the ball. I never want to surrender the ball. That's just been my approach along the way. Hopefully it does help in how people view me as a running back," he said. He has a pro day March 20.

UCF senior RB Latavius Murray rushed for 108 yards, averaging 7.7 per carry, and added one touchdown.

Murray's longest run went for 43 yards. Miami transfer Storm Johnson drew most of the offseason buzz, but if this game is any indication, Murray is the one to watch in the Golden Knights' backfield. The senior is a much larger back, but showed some quality burst against Akron.
