Kyler Murray Is Top-Notch. Will He Pursue

BREAKING: Kyler Murray Chooses Football Over Baseball, Enters NFL Draft

In the vast majority of early 2019 NFL Mock Drafts, the New York Giants are commonly projected to select Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins at No. 6 overall.

This past season for the Sooners, he completed 260 of 377 passes for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns with seven interceptions and a passer rating of 199.2.

Kyler Murray started one season at quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners.

While some looked at Murray as a potential breakout star in the sport, his run to the Heisman Trophy surpassed even the boldest of expectations and vaulted him onto the radar of National Football League teams.

While most National Football League mock drafts see Murray gone in the first round, there are now some who believe he could be picked in later rounds, either second or third. Hurts was the SEC Offensive Player of the Year in 2016 and has a 26-2 record as a starter at Alabama, but was passed over on the depth chart by Tua Tagovailoa, who finished as the Heisman runner-up behind Murray. Desperate teams in need of quarterbacks generally don't wait around until the third round and risk missing out on a guy they want, and that would nearly certainly end up happening with Murray. While Murray still can choose baseball, it looks like his heart is with football.

GREENE:.Harder for him or - easier or harder.

Depending on how Kingsbury or other National Football League teams eyeing Murray do their homework, there seems to be pros and cons in taking him in the first round.

The biggest concern with Murray is obviously his size, as he is listed at 5-foot-10 but is probably an inch shorter than that.

He is scheduled to report to spring training in Arizona with the Athletics on Feb.15. "I think if he wants to play quarterback, which appears to be his greatest love, there can't be any question that he's 100 per cent football". When it's all said and done, what impact did you make and where did you make it? That date can be seen as one of the first indicators of which way he's leaning. However, Mayfield went first overall and it seems unlikely right now that Murray will be the No. 1 overall pick.

"And so the immediate money in football is more guaranteed at this position".

Murray agreed to contract with the A's in June 2018 that paid him a $4.66 million signing bonus.

It's true, the NFL Draft is a grueling process.

It will be an interesting situation to monitor, no matter what he decides.
