On November 14, 2016, it was announced that Pumphrey had accepted an invitation to appear in the 2017 Senior Bowl. On January 28, 2017, Pumphrey played in the Senior Bowl and had four carries for 23 rushing yards, two receptions for 15 receiving yards, and returned four punts for a total of 44 yards to help Cleveland Browns' head coach Hue Jackson's South team defeat the North 16-15. His 82 all-purpose yards finished second among the South team. He was one of 33 collegiate running backs to attend the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana. Pumphrey completed the majority of combine drills, but opted to skip the short shuttle and three-cone drill. Although he ran the fourth fastest 40-yard dash, his 4.48 was seen as a disappointment among scouts. He also weighed in as the lightest among his position group and the fifth shortest. On March 23, 2017, he attended San Diego State's pro day, along with Damontae Kazee, Nico Siragusa, Calvin Munson, and 10 other teammates. He opted to stand on his combine numbers and only performed positional drills and the bench press for scouts and team representatives from 29 NFL teams that attended. Pumphrey impressed scouts with his receiving out of the backfield and ability to run during running back drills. At the conclusion of the pre-draft process, Pumphrey was projected to be a fourth or fifth round pick by the majority of NFL draft experts and scouts. He was ranked as the 14th best running back prospect in the draft by The Philadelphia Eagles selected Pumphrey in the fourth round (132nd overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft. He was the 12th running back selected and one of three San Diego State players chosen in the draft in 2017, along with Siragusa and Kazee. On May 11, 2017, the Philadelphia Eagles signed Pumphrey to a four-year, $2.97 million contract that includes a signing bonus of $575,888. Throughout training camp, he competed against Darren Sproles, Byron Marshall, Wendell Smallwood, and Corey Clement for a role as backup running back. Head coach Doug Pederson named Pumphrey the fourth running back on the Eagles' depth chart to begin the regular season, behind LeGarrette Blount, Darren Sproles, and Corey Clement. On September 15, 2017, he was placed on injured reserve after suffering a torn hamstring in practice. Pumphrey missed his entire rookie season and did not log a snap or carry in 2017. Without Pumphrey, the Eagles won Super Bowl LII against the New England Patriots 41-33, earning Pumphrey his first Superbowl ring.
