DeMarco Murray has visited a number of NFL teams, including the Lions, Eagles and Falcons.

Atlanta is looking for an explosive third-down back to back up Michael Turner, making the Falcons a decent possibility. ESPN Draft analyst Mel Kiper has Murray going to the Falcons late in the third round.

The Lions are in the market for a back to take pressure off Jahvid Best and reportedly have targeted Murray as an option.

Murray's ability to catch the ball out of the backfield fits the style of back coveted by Eagles coach Andy Reid.

Other teams who have a glaring running back need include the Packers, Redskins, Dolphins, Patriots, Colts and Saints.
