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

The Oakland A's expect Kyler Murray to enter the NFL Draft, according to a report from the San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser.

Despite a previous rumor that there "were rumblings" Murray would play both baseball and football next season, it's reportedly not going to happen.

Murray, 21, complicated things by leading Oklahoma to a 12-2 record and a spot in the College Football Playoff, winning the Heisman Trophy along the way. His baseball path is pretty much set, but he's still a skilled quarterback who could stand a good chance to be drafted at a decent spot in the NFL.

The original news came from Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, who reported that the Athletics expect Murray to enter the National Football League draft.


In December, at least five National Football League personnel executives - all of them general managers or scouting directors - told FanSided they believe that Murray could be drafted somewhere in the first or second round. The Texas native batted.296 with 13 doubles, 10 home runs, a.954 OPS and 10 stolen bases for the Sooners baseball team, which led to him becoming a top-10 pick.

"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.

What sport do you think the quarterback should go with?

This became a huge deal due to the fact that the Cardinals do indeed have the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Boras has been steadfast that Murray will be play baseball now that Oklahoma's football season is over. But it's finally becoming real as the final days for him to make a decision are on the horizon. Josh Rosen, the quarterback who was chosen 10th overall in last year's draft. Russell Wilson is the best comparison, but even he was a third-round pick.
