Sanders says he’d advise Murray to choose baseball

Dane Brugler of The Athletic updated his Mock Draft 2.0 after Monday's news that Murray would declare himself eligible for the NFL Draft, and still has Miami selecting Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell at No. 13.

Kyler declared on the final day that underclassman could declare for the draft, with the deadline being at midnight.

Murray's road to his National Football League draft choice was a winding one from his prep days in suburban Dallas. Could this hurt his stock before the 2019 NFL Draft?

The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback declared for the National Football League draft on Monday, putting an end to any chances of him returning to Oklahoma for his senior season. Murray is a talented out fielder. "Sometimes, I still have regret that I didn't give [baseball] more".

He will choose football and see what deal he can work with the A's to play baseball AFTER his NFL commitments are over. It simply means he is keeping his options open. "I'm straight. But I wish I would have given (baseball) more". Major League Baseball also sent marketing executives to meet with him to present information about Murray's off-field earning potential. Kyler Murray won the Heisman Trophy in December, which proves he is an insanely talented football player who had an electric 2018 season. Some scouts apparently think that would be a mistake.

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.

Tesla plans to cut thousands of jobs after the "most challenging" year in the electric vehicle maker's history. Tesla shares walked off a cliff on Friday after the company announced layoffs.

Either way, Murray's presence is intriguing because the quarterback class is relatively thin, and because his remarkable athleticism has many believing he could become a superstar with the right coaching.

An important date to remember when keeping track of the drama to come involving Murray will be February 15, when A's players are to report in Arizona for the start of Spring Training.

Well, this season at Oklahoma, Kyler Murray had an even better season than Mayfield did a year ago - in the same offense and with largely the same personnel.

The gamble from the NFL side is what if Murray says he wants to play football and then changes his mind after he is drafted or after a year in the process in which he is battered and bruised the way Rosen was with the Cardinals this season? He also rushed for 1,001 yards and 12 TDs. His ability to make plays with his legs makes defenses need to construct special game plans.

The concerns about Kyler Murray are limited, but warranted.

Murray is the ultimate dual-threat quarterback.
