Kyler Murray picks football, and just how will he impact draft?

Murray announced his decision to exclusively concentrate on the gridiron Monday on Twitter.

Beane was asked by ESPN's Pedro Gomez, just before Murray's announcement, if the A's would have handled the draft differently knowing what they know now - that Murray would win the Heisman Trophy and be a projected first-round National Football League draft pick.

"Football has been my love and passion my entire life", Murray wrote. I have started an extensive training program to further prepare myself for upcoming workouts and interviews. After all, Murray was the ninth overall pick by the Athletics in last year's Major League Baseball draft, but he's also considered a first-round talent in football and the ceiling for him in the NFL will be higher.

Quarterback Kyler Murray #1 of the Oklahoma Sooners looks to throw against the UCLA Bruins at Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on September 8, 2018 in Norman, Oklahoma. But that narrative has changed (albeit pre-Scouting combine) and most think Murray will indeed be a first-round pick. Murray will return $1.29 million of the $1.5 million signing bonus money the A's gave him past year, a source told ESPN's Jeff Passan. And with baseball becoming both increasingly expensive, professionalized and hard at the youth level-kids who harbor major league dreams are forced into endless travel ball circuits, highly competitive All-Star leagues and expensive private coaching before they've even reached puberty-it's easy to see those would-be Kyler Murrays choosing football or basketball, too.

Last month, Murray declared for the NFL Draft with a simple tweet saying, "I have declared for the NFL Draft". He is expected to be an early draft pick in this year's NFL Draft. Oakland is now due a refund of $1.29 million of the bonus, according to ESPN's Jeff Passan, and Murray will forfeit the future $3.16 million payment.

Because of Murray's height and slight build, there is some apprehension from NFL evaluators about his long-term success in football. Murray scored a combined 54 touchdowns, which is tied for the ninth-most in NCAA Division I history. Although the A's were hoping he'd choose baseball, they were increasingly pessimistic the longer his locker in their spring-training clubhouse sat empty.
