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

On Wednesday, sources told the Oakland Athletics that Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray would indeed declare for the National Football League draft.

Beane gave an introduction, describing Murray as a dynamic, game-changing talent who was clearly worth the gamble. And on Wednesday, news broke that Murray intends to enter the NFL Draft. Heading to the draft doesn't mean he's going to decline his $4.66 million deal with the Athletics, however, it does appear as though Murray is looking to prioritize a career in the NFL.

An important question for Murray is what happens to him after the first contract. At that point, Murray had only played college football sporadically as a freshman at Texas A&M and as Baker Mayfield's backup at Oklahoma as a sophomore. While declaring doesn't guarantee Murray will play baseball instead of football, but it certainly increases that chance.

One problem: any pursuit of a football career surely would interrupt a baseball career, as the NFL Scouting Combine starts in late February. "You can be pro in one sport and amateur in the other, as we know". Given his abilities as both a passer and runner, combined with the success Mayfield had as a rookie, the expectation is Murray would be a first-round pick and have success in the NFL.

If Murray choses football and does not play baseball, he would have to pay back his signing bonus to the A's, who would retain Murray's draft rights if he played in the NFL.

Jason Smith and Mike Harmon discuss what to make of Kyler Murray who now has a big decision to make going into professional sports. It's awfully tough to play minor-league baseball and college football at the same time. Russell Wilson is the best comparison, but even he was a third-round pick.
