Kyler Murray Is Expected To Declare For The NFL Draft

Kyler Murray is facing a very enviable decision. More

The report says declaring for the draft does not guarantee Murray will reject his $4.7 million signing bonus he received from the A's, but it increases the chance he will decide to play pro football.

It appears as though Kyler Murray, the Heisman trophy victor who plays quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners and was drafted by the Oakland A's of the Major League Baseball 9th overall back in June, is declaring for the NFL draft, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Murray, an outfielder on the diamond, is due to report to spring training in Arizona on February 15 - nearly two weeks before the NFL's scouting combine takes place. His agent, Scott Boras, had insisted Murray was committed to playing professional baseball and would attend Spring Training.

"I'd take him with the first pick of the draft if I could", he continued.

According to a source, Murray declaring for the draft is not considered to be contractually significant.

When he woke, the roommate took the card to a shop in an attempt to collect his winning but was told that it wasn't a victor . That's the number of dollars he won with a lottery ticket he purchased December 20, a ticket his roommate allegedly stole .

The 49ers and the Raiders hold the second and fourth overall picks, respectively, so if Murray were to go at the very top of the draft, that could make prospects available to both Bay Area teams that wouldn't have been otherwise. "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".

Entering the draft doesn't necessarily mean that Murray will forgo his commitment to the Athletics, but Slusser and Schulman report that one source indicated to them that Murray is indeed leaning toward selecting football as his profession rather than baseball.

I've already said the Cardinals should take Murray with the first pick now that Kingsbury is running the show. "I would take him with the first pick".

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.
