Kliff Kingsbury, Cardinals Could Draft Kyler Murray #1 Overall, Trade Josh Rosen

Kliff Kingsbury, Cardinals Could Draft Kyler Murray #1 Overall, Trade Josh Rosen”

If Murray elects not to play baseball, he would have to return the signing bonus but Oakland would not receive any compensation picks in this June's draft, according to Slusser.

One source told The Chronicle that Murray is leaning toward football.

The Oakland Athletics expect Oklahoma standout Kyler Murray to choose football and enter the NFL draft prior to Sunday's deadline, reports Susan Slusser and Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. The NFL's scouting combine begins on February 26, which Murray will likely attend if he chooses to go the football route.

Maybe he was just speaking broadly with cliches or a touch of an overstatement, but Kliff Kingsbury once said he'd take Kyler Murray with the No. 1 pick in the draft.

"Some see Murray's size as a factor (he's listed at 5'10" but probably shorter than that), but his skill set is so great teams will be willing to take a shot on him.

But his agent, Scott Boras, told ESPN on Wednesday night that Murray "has a baseball contract". "I'd take him with the first pick in the draft if I could".

While many onlookers note that Major League Baseball's guaranteed salary structure should be more enticing to Murray (or any player), that's somewhat of a presumptuous argument.

The A's would retain Murray's professional baseball rights should he join an NFL team, retaining the possibility he could play for them at a future date if football did not pan out as expected. Seems like Kingsbury will have his chance to put his money where his mouth is and take Murray.

Obviously, Kingsbury is now in Arizona, where the Cardinals own the first overall pick.

Murray, a top 10 pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, is reportedly planning on declaring for the NFL Draft this weekend. Josh Rosen, the quarterback who was chosen 10th overall in last year's draft.
