A's Reportedly Expect Kyler Murray To Enter NFL Draft

Kyler Murray

A source told Slusser that Murray is leaning toward football.

The Oakland Athletics expect dual-sport sensation Kyler Murray to declare for the NFL Draft, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. Murray, an outfielder, is scheduled to report to the A's spring training with other position players on February 15 - but the National Football League scouting combine begins February 26, and skipping the combine would surely diminish his draft value.

Earlier this week, it was reported Murray would have to pick between baseball and football because of the difficulties that come with learning and playing quarterback in the NFL.

Star Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray is reportedly expected to declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.

"Some see Murray's size as a factor (he's listed at 5'10" but probably shorter than that), but his skill set is so great teams will be willing to take a shot on him.

Report: Athletics Expect Heisman Winner Kyler Murray To Enter NFL Draft

Last month, on the eve of the Heisman ceremony, it was clear that Murray was torn about which sport he wanted to play. "I know he's signed up to play baseball, but he is a dominant football player, and I would take him with the first pick". Seems like Kingsbury will have his chance to put his money where his mouth is and take Murray.

And if we're to believe ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cardinals could actually be open to trading Rosen - who they drafted 10th overall a year ago - in order to take Murray with the first overall pick in the draft.

If Murray passes on the A's, they would not receive a compensation pick for him, but they would retain his MLB rights if he should opt to play baseball at some future date.

Murray was selected No. 9 overall by Oakland in last year's draft but returned to Oklahoma for his Junior season, where he won the Heisman after tossing 42 touchdowns compared to just seven interceptions.
