Kyler Murray Is Expected To Declare For The NFL Draft

Kyler Murray Is Expected To Declare For The NFL Draft

If he chooses baseball, he faces possibly a few years of slumming it in the minors after getting to play in front of 85,000 people for one of college football's marquee programs that was just in the College Football Playoff. Now, it seems Murray may be heading to the National Football League or at least feeling out the draft process.

Murray was the ninth overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft of the A's and, as such, has a $4.88 million contract waiting for him if he chooses to play baseball. Obviously, things went incredibly well there, to that point that he's now seriously considering a jump to the NFL.

Susan Slusser and Henry Schulman of The Chronicle reported Wednesday that a source with knowledge of the situation said Murray "will have to pick one sport because the demands of learning and playing quarterback in the National Football League would preclude him from playing professional baseball".

With news that Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray will declare for the 2019 NFL Draft, there's now rumblings about potential landing spots for the Heisman victor.

Former Trump Lawyer Cohen to Testify Publicly Before Congress
Known as Trump's "fixer", part of Cohen's job was to make the president's problems go away - by any means necessary. But because he pleaded guilty he was never cross-examined on details of his dealings with Mr Trump.

These odds are only slightly surprising, especially considering the incredible amount of hype surrounding Murray. He also ran for 892 yards and 11 touchdowns. Unless choosing the less risky sport were his priority, picking football makes more sense.

This isn't the only rumbling that's come out which points to Murry as a potential first-round selection either. I think a quarterback-hitter would be a disaster because you wouldn't get enough at bats. If Murray were to decide to play football - which sources told the Chronicle they believe he will - he would have to give back most or all of the bonus, according to MLB.com.

With Murray reportedly expected to throw his hat into the ring before Monday's deadline, speculation of where he would be drafted and if he could be taken No. 1 overall already has begun. The Cards traded up to take Josh Rosen in the top 10 past year, and he's still got a mighty bright future ahead of him. Before taking over as Texas Tech's head coach in 2013, Kingsbury was the Aggies offensive coordinator and helped recruit Murray, who was starring at Allen High School.
