National Football League mock draft: Kyler Murray lands with Redskins

Former Oklahoma quarterback and 2018 Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray officially announced he declared for the NFL Draft on Monday, but that doesn't have an immediate impact on his deal with the Oakland A's, who drafted Murray at No. 9 overall previous year.

He will choose football and see what deal he can work with the A's to play baseball AFTER his NFL commitments are over.

"Life won't allow him to", Sanders said on ESPN's SportsCenter.

Instead, Murray transferred to Oklahoma from the Aggies after his freshman season, redshirting in 2016 so he could play in 2017, where he served as a backup to that season's Heisman victor, Baker Mayfield.

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.

On Monday, his competition for the top quarterback spot in the 2019 NFL Draft, Kyler Murray, officially declared.

So, will Murray have to choose between professional baseball and National Football League? He made eight Pro Bowls and won two Super Bowls during his time in the National Football League but said he sometimes wishes he focused more on baseball. Even if (barring an injury) Murray does flame out in football, he can still make a career switch to baseball at the young age of 25 or 26.

While Murray's on-field play has been exemplary, the young prospect did have off-field issues to address when, the day after he won the Heisman Trophy, it was revealed he had posted tweets as a 15-year-old that contained an anti-gay slur. Desperate teams in need of quarterbacks generally don't wait around until the third round and risk missing out on a guy they want, and that would nearly certainly end up happening with Murray.

National Football League quarterbacks are some of the highest paid professional sportspeople in the USA and is one of the few National Football League positions that can compete with the deals top baseball players receive. However, Mayfield went first overall and it seems unlikely right now that Murray will be the No. 1 overall pick. During the 2018 NFL season, the Cardinals were the only team in football to finish with only three wins, and need to revamp the entire roster if they are going to be competitive in 2019.

The higher the pick, the more money Murray will receive. It was believed for a while that Murray would choose baseball instead, but things changed over the past couple months.
