Oakland A's expect Kyler Murray to declare for 2019 National Football League draft

Report: Athletics Expect Heisman Winner Kyler Murray To Enter NFL Draft Report: Kyler Murray Is “Leaning Toward” Playing Football

Slusser notes that declaring for the draft does not mean the Heisman victor will decide to reject his $4.66 million deal with the A's outright, but it does increase the chances of him ultimately choosing football over baseball. In fact, it appears Murray is going to at least test the 2019 NFL Draft waters.

According to Henry Schulman and Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, the A's expect that indecision to result in Murray declaring for the Draft on Sunday when the deadline arrives.

Bleacher Report's Matt Miller said talk of Murray staying with football has been "heating up".

That's because declaring for the draft means nothing. Position players are scheduled to report on February 15. The NFL Combine is scheduled to take place on February 26. Murray skipping that to attend the combine would send a pretty big shockwave towards the A's.

Kyler Murray faces a very interesting decision this week. Slusser adds that there is no possibility Murray could play both baseball and football professionally at the same time.

ESPN draft experts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay have noted that Murray could be a first-round pick, and ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Wednesday that Murray was getting "first-round feedback" about the NFL. If Murray went to the National Football League and ditched the A's, he would have to pay his MLB signing bonus back, but the A's would get hosed by not receiving a compensation pick.

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.

First, he has a contract that guarantees him a signing bonus of more than $4.6 million.

Baseball money is better than football money, but a great quarterback can get stupid rich much faster than a stud baseball prospect.
