A's Reportedly Expect Kyler Murray To Enter NFL Draft

A's Reportedly Expect Kyler Murray To Enter NFL Draft

The Oakland Athletics expect dual-sport sensation Kyler Murray to declare for the NFL Draft, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. The NFL's scouting combine begins on February 26, which Murray will likely attend if he chooses to go the football route.

Sources told the Chronicle they do not believe he can play football and baseball, though Murray has expressed a desire to possibly do both.

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

Unhappy with his two-goal return, Chelsea lent Salah to Italian outfits Fiorentina and Roma, then sold him to the latter club. He became the first player to do so after Ivory Coast's Yaya Toure, who claimed it four years in a row between 2011 and 2014.


Murray went out and helped the Sooners put up 51 on Kingsbury's Texas Tech squad while throwing for 360 yards and three touchdowns while also running for 100 yards and a touchdown on the way to the Heisman Trophy.

Slusser notes that declaring for the draft does not mean the Heisman victor will decide to reject his $4.66 million deal with the A's outright, but it does increase the chances of him ultimately choosing football over baseball.

"I'd take him with the first pick of the draft if I could". "All I know is Kyler has a tremendous opportunity to be a great baseball player and he knows that".

But as his health declined previous year , Lutes chose to sell the coin, said Peter Karpenski, a friend and fellow coin collector. Those planchets went unnoticed when the bins were refilled with zinc-coated steel planchets in 1943, Heritage Auctions said.


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. The quarterback class is seen as weak, which would give Murray a good chance to go higher than he might have in other years.

Obviously, Kingsbury is now in Arizona, where the Cardinals own the first overall pick. Baseball might have better long-term value, but the glitz, glamour and money that come with being the No. 1 pick in the National Football League draft might be too much to resist.

The Cardinals may have taken Josh Rosen at quarterback past year, but if Kingsbury believes in Murray that much, they should take him all the way and just trade Rosen.
