Kyler Murray NFL Draft: Odds on When Oklahoma QB Will Be Picked

Declaring for the draft would not guarantee that Murray would choose football, and the A's would retain his professional rights, even if he tried the NFL first.

After posting a 3-13 record in 2018, the Cardinals own the top pick in April's draft and Kingsbury will be part of that decision after being hired as Arizona's head coach this week. He also ran for 892 yards and 11 touchdowns. At present, the only thing guaranteed to Murray in his baseball career is that $4.66MM bonus. With so the options limited unlike last year's draft, the team might have received some good news on Wednesday night as one of the best quarterbacks in college football is reportedly declaring for the 2019 NFL Draft.

"If you're talking about using a first- or a second-round pick on him, you have to know that he's committed to play (football)", one high-ranking NFC team executive said.

Art Rooney open to trade for Antonio Brown
Brown has an NFL-record six consecutive 100-catch seasons and recorded a league-high 15 touchdowns in 2018. Whether Brown possibly could come back remains a big hurdle if Rooney's words are to be believed.

Murray's agent Scott Boras was quoted in the Chronicle's story, saying "When you win the Heisman Trophy, you're going to have a lot of information come to you to be looked at", Boras said at the winter meetings in Las Vegas.

What sport do you think the quarterback should go with?

The Cardinals have the first overall pick and the No. 33 pick. Some pundits have him as a possible first-round pick.

Manafort accused of lying about sharing polling data with Russian
Manafort was secretly coordinating with Kilimnik, and kept that fact hidden even when pressed on the issue under criminal penalty. For the two charges he now faces in DC federal court, Manafort could receive 17 to 22 years in prison, his plea agreement says.

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

The 2018 Heisman Trophy victor wowed college football fans by accounting for 54 total touchdowns and leading the 12-2 Sooners to a berth in the College Football Playoff. The Cards traded up to take Josh Rosen in the top 10 a year ago, and he's still got a mighty bright future ahead of him.

Rainwater reacted to Murray's decision to pursue the NFL-and potentially put his career in Oakland on the back-burner-in a way which can only be described as unprofessional in the sports media sphere.
