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

Declaring for the 2019 NFL Draft does not mean Murray is 100 percent choosing football over baseball, but it could mean he's leaning towards that.

Kingsbury already has a highly drafted quarterback - Josh Rosen - in place, but a Kingsbury interview from October resurfaced Wednesday morning during which he raved about Murray, the University of Oklahoma quarterback who reportedly will enter the National Football League draft despite being taken by the Oakland Athletics in the first round of the MLB draft past year.

If the Cardinals don't take him, there's still likely several teams in the first round that would use a pick on him. I've never seen one better in high school, and he's starting to show it now at the college level.

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.

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. Seems like Kingsbury will have his chance to put his money where his mouth is and take Murray. Some pundits have him as a possible first-round pick.

" ... I've never seen him have a poor outing, not one, which at quarterback, it's impossible to do, but he's done it". But realistically, it's unlikely Kingsbury would take Murray with the top pick, no matter how big of a freak he is. At present, the only thing guaranteed to Murray in his baseball career is that $4.66MM bonus.

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.
