A's Reportedly Expect Kyler Murray To Enter NFL Draft

  • Report: Athletics Expect Heisman Winner Kyler Murray To Enter 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 paper reports that the Oakland Athletics drafted Murray 9th overall in the Major League Baseball Draft last summer.

Murray won the Heisman Trophy this season with Oklahoma and saw his draft stock soar.

Beane gave an introduction, describing Murray as a dynamic, game-changing talent who was clearly worth the gamble.

According to BetOnline via Tulsa World reporter Eric Bailey, odds have been released on Murray's potential as a first round National Football League draft pick, and what he does as either an National Football League player or baseball player.

Matt Miller of Bleacher Report said recently if quarterbacks such as Lamar Jackson of the Ravens can be drafted in the first round, why can't Murray? He received $4.9 million guaranteed, but was allowed to play football this season under the contract.

Sources also told ESPN that the A's expect to see Murray, whom they drafted in the first round previous year, in spring training from mid-February until mid-March, then have him start his first professional baseball season at Class A Stockton. In December, Murray's baseball agent, Scott Boras, insisted to the media that Murray would play baseball. Despite them denying it, who knows, maybe the team would be enticed to trade Josh Rosen, but it's all speculation and probably a long-shot at this stage.

"Was that a deal-breaker for you if they didn't want you to go back to". In his one full season of college baseball at Oklahoma, Murray posted an impressive.954 onbase-plus-slugging percentage. The Cardinals hold the No. 1 overall pick. In late November, Marc Tracy of The New York Times revealed that ESPN's Todd McShay believed Murray would be a first-round pick.
