Kyler Murray Is Reportedly Expected To Declare For NFL Draft

Report: Athletics Expect Heisman Winner Kyler Murray To Enter NFL Draft The A’s Reportedly Expect Heisman Winner Kyler Murray To Enter The NFL Draft

With a report that Oklahoma QB and Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray may enter the NFL Draft, the Internet was abuzz with where he might go.

The Cardinals on Wednesday hired the former Texas Tech coach to take over, hoping he can sprinkle some of his offensive fairy dust on a team that finished dead last in the National Football League in points and yards gained.

So, Murray definitely has an admirer in the current holder of the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Heading to the draft doesn't mean he's going to decline his $4.66 million deal with the Athletics, however, it does appear as though Murray is looking to prioritize a career in the NFL.

Murray, 21, complicated things by leading Oklahoma to an 12-2 record and a spot in the College Football Playoff, winning the Heisman Trophy along the way. "I've followed him since he was a sophomore in high school and just think the world of him and what he can do on a football field".

"I'd take him with the first pick of the draft if I could". I've never seen anyone better in high school and he's starting to show it now at the college level. Which at quarterback, that's impossible to do.

She adds that another revealing sign could come on February 15 when Murray and the rest of the A's position players are due at spring training. "All I know is Kyler has a tremendous opportunity to be a great baseball player and he knows that".

If Murray decides to play in NFL especially at the quarterback position teams will expect him to be all in on football and nothing else, that is the only way he will be selected in 1st round if they have those assurances. "I would take him with the first pick".

To be fair, this scenario is highly improbable that a team would give up on a quarterback after selecting him in the top-10 just a year ago, but it does present a viable possibility.

Murray, a top 10 pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, is reportedly planning on declaring for the NFL Draft this weekend.
