New Cardinals coach once said he'd draft Murray No. 1

Kyler Murray

It appears as though Kyler Murray, the Heisman trophy victor who plays quarterback for the Oklahoma Sooners and was drafted by the Oakland A's of the Major League Baseball 9th overall back in June, is declaring for the NFL draft, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

"Kyler is a freak", Kingsbury said.

"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.

There's also a chance he could be the first pick overall.

Entering the draft doesn't necessarily mean that Murray will forgo his commitment to the Athletics, but Slusser and Schulman report that one source indicated to them that Murray is indeed leaning toward selecting football as his profession rather than baseball.

Declaring for the draft would not guarantee that Murray would choose football, and the A's would retain his professional rights, even if he tried the NFL first.

Kingsbury has never had a chance to coach Murray before, but he's very familiar with the Heisman victor. "I've followed him since he was a sophomore in high school and just think the world of him and what he can do on the football field". Not one, which at quarterback is impossible to do.

She adds that another revealing sign could come on February 15 when Murray and the rest of the A's position players are due at spring training. He's phenomenal. I've never seen him have a poor outing. I know he's signed up to play baseball, but he is a dominant football player.

Murray, a top 10 pick in the 2018 MLB Draft, is reportedly planning on declaring for the NFL Draft this weekend.

I'm sure when Kliff Kingsbury was heaping praise upon Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray back in October of previous year, he wasn't planning on being the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals just a few months later.
