Looks like Kyler Murray could be headed to the National Football League draft

Looks like Kyler Murray could be headed to the National Football League draft

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.

Maybe he was just speaking broadly with cliches or a touch of an overstatement, but Kliff Kingsbury once said he'd take Kyler Murray with the No. 1 pick in the draft.

If the Cardinals don't take him, there's still likely several teams in the first round that would use a pick on him.

The Oakland Athletics expect dual-sport sensation Kyler Murray to declare for the NFL Draft, according to Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle. "I've followed him since he was a sophomore in high school and just think the world of him and what he can do on the football field". I don't have enough good things to say about him. Murray would have to return his signing bonus to Oakland if he does not play for the club.

She has similar feelings about Samantha Ronson , the British DJ she famously struck up a romance with just a few years later. She shared that on her new reality series, one of VIP hosts is bisexual and "people were kind of mean to him about that".

Murray's agent, Scott Boras, told The Chronicle in December that his client planned to report to the A's. Arizona still sees him as a franchise cornerstone and brought in QB whisperer Kingsbury to unlock his potential. "All I know is Kyler has a tremendous opportunity to be a great baseball player and he knows that".

Murray was the first athlete in history to be selected to the Under Armour All-American game in both football and baseball.

And if we're to believe ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cardinals could actually be open to trading Rosen - who they drafted 10th overall a year ago - in order to take Murray with the first overall pick in the draft. Josh Rosen, the quarterback who was chosen 10th overall in last year's draft.

A number of former Major League Baseball draft picks ultimately chose to pursue football full time, including Russell Wilson, Jameis Winston and Ricky Williams.
