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.
However, he remained at Oklahoma University to play a full season as quarterback with the "Sooners". That means, somewhat miraculously, the Dolphins would pass on Murray, the dynamic 5-foot-10ish Heisman Trophy victor. It has been an uncertain rumor wether or not Murray would declare due to his possible career in baseball, but he has made a decision to keep his options open and declare for the 2019 NFL Draft. Murray had also said multiple times throughout the football season that he plans to focus strictly on baseball after this season.
As outstanding a football prospect as Murray is, baseball runs through his veins just as much as pigskin does. One player expected to be in the mix for the starting job in 2019 is Austin Kendall, Murray's backup in 2018.
Top A's executives, a marketing executive from MLB and others met Sunday afternoon with Murray in Dallas, sources told ESPN, to better understand what it would take for Murray to forgo a football career and to sell him on playing baseball full time.
This is a football pedigree that - coupled with a unsafe dual-threat style that makes him inherently harder to defend - turns him into a no-brainer first-round NFL talent.
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.
Then, Murray did less than an hour later vis his Twitter account.
They say "choice is a luxury", but aside from the odd referendum, most of the choices we have to make are pretty low key.
He is scheduled to report to spring training in Arizona with the Athletics on Feb.15.
Where exactly he'll be drafted remains to be seen.
As mentioned in a previous post, new Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury is high on the 22-year-old quarterback.
Murray earned a $4.66 million signing bonus when he joined the Athletics, a sum that he would be required to return should he opt to switch to the NFL. From watching his tape, he appears to be a much smaller Michael Vick, and that has to be exciting for National Football League teams - many of which desperately need an upgrade at quarterback.
It will be an interesting situation to monitor, no matter what he decides.
He said he would also prioritize voting rights and efforts to ensure that foreign powers do not interfere with USA elections. President Donald Trump's nominee to be United States attorney general has vowed he will not be bullied by the president.
