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

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.

Kyler Murray's draft status could put that in doubt.

A video from late October made the rounds on social media Wednesday night featuring new Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury raving about Oklahoma quarterback and Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray. One G.M. said he hadn't even studied Murray's film, given the then-prevailing belief (as fueled by his baseball agent) that Murray would choose the hide of a horse over the skin of a pig.

At a listed 5-foot-10, 195 pounds, Murray is very small for an National Football League quarterback.

Last month, on the eve of the Heisman ceremony, it was clear that Murray was torn about which sport he wanted to play.

AT&T is pretending like 5G is already here - and misleading users
Donovan's comment about creating a narrative suggests the company is well aware of this. AT&T calls it "building a narrative".

Murray has a definite chance to be a first round pick this April, but some teams may shy away from him because he lacks prototypical size for an National Football League signal caller.

Winning the Heisman Trophy this season at Oklahoma seems to have been a major factor in Murray's decision.

College football fans can dream of an Air Raid union made in heaven of Kingsbury and Murray playing at University of Phoenix Stadium, but there are plenty of obstacles in the way of that reality. Spring training for the A's opens on February 15, and it appears unlikely Murray would be able to prepare for the NFL scouting combine at the same time as attending his first major league baseball camp. And on Wednesday, news broke that Murray intends to enter the NFL Draft. He will likely need to measure at 5-foot-10 or tall to be a sure bet first round pick.

Miami will have the No. 13 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
