STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - Trent Murphy has never been intimidated by larger linemen. After wrestling 800-pound cattle as a kid, another human just isn't that imposing.

At 6-foot-6 and 261 pounds, no challenge has ever seemed too much for Murphy's muscle. Stanford's versatile linebacker, once thought too slender for his sport, has grown into a possible first-round pick in next May's NFL draft by making up for any shortcomings in his size with his willpower.

Murphy led the Cardinal with 10 sacks and 18 tackles for loss last season, and he already has two sacks and three tackles for loss this season. He'll try to build his resume even more Saturday against his hometown college when fifth-ranked Stanford (2-0) hosts No. 23 Arizona State (2-0) in the Pac-12 opener for both teams.
