  • Report: Athletics Expect Heisman Winner Kyler Murray To Enter NFL Draft

Six NFL executives told FanSided they expect Murray - the Oklahoma quarterback, Oakland A's outfielder and Heisman Trophy victor - to have an agreement in place with any NFL team that might draft him before the actual draft begins on April 25.

Murray was the ninth overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft of the A's and, as such, has a $4.88 million contract waiting for him if he chooses to play baseball.

But the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback is also considering entering the NFL Draft.

Murray would need to make a decision within the next month even if he declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Andy Murray to retire this year, eyes Wimbledon as last event
Andy Murray is still hoping to make it to one more Wimbledon tournament before his problematic hip forces him into retirement. At 37, Federer is in Australia attempting to win the title for a third year running and for a seventh time overall.

Murray, an outfielder on the diamond, is due to report to spring training in Arizona on February 15 - nearly two weeks before the NFL's scouting combine takes place. All along, his agent Scott Boras has insisted that he's going to play baseball and if Murray does decide to hit the NFL Draft instead of playing baseball, he'd have to give back a large portion of that signing bonus. He was the No. 1 dual-threat quarterback coming out of high school in Allen, Texas after he went 42-0 and won three state titles.

Baseball looks like it will be losing a top athlete to the NFL. Scouts see huge upside - obviously, as a starting quarterback was taken in the first round of a baseball draft.

While Murray doesn't strike most as a player the Jags would be interested in with Tom Coughlin running things, it would be foolish to overlook him as a prospect. In his one full season of college baseball at Oklahoma, Murray posted an impressive.954 onbase-plus-slugging percentage. In 2016, the top two picks were dealt with the Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns recouping a pair of first-rounders and several more early picks.

The Cardinals have the first overall pick and the No. 33 pick.
