Kyler Murray To Declare For NFL Draft, Leanings Towards Football

Kyler Murray To Declare For NFL Draft, Leanings Towards Football

Maybe he was just speaking broadly with cliches or a touch of an overstatement, but Kliff Kingsbury once said he'd take Kyler Murray with the No. 1 pick in the draft.

"Kyler is a freak", Kingsbury told KLBK-TV in Lubbock, Texas, back in late October ahead of the Red Raiders' clash with OU.

Kingsbury has never had a chance to coach Murray before, but he's very familiar with the Heisman victor.

"I don't have enough good things to say about him", Kingsbury said of the Oklahoma quarterback. "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 a football field". Not one, which at quarterback is impossible to do. He's phenomenal. I've never seen him have a poor outing. "But he's done it".

Even an optimistic and aggressive timeline for Murray reaching arbitration would put him at least a half-decade away from realizing his first significant post-draft payday in baseball, and it's far from a guarantee that he'd ever be the type of player to command significant arbitration salaries or a significant multi-year contract in free agency. I know he's signed up to play baseball, but he is a dominant football player.

He added that some yellow vest protesters believed that RT was the only "free media". Equality Minister Marlene Schiappa told France Info radio on Tuesday.

Well well well. amusing how things work. Certainly, there are more than pure financial considerations at play, but assuming he's a first-round selection in the National Football League draft, Murray can look at Jackson's near-$9.5MM guarantee as a rough baseline for what he'd be promised.

If Murray decides to play in NFL especially at the quarterback position teams will expect him to be all in on football and nothing else, that is the only way he will be selected in 1st round if they have those assurances.

The Cardinals may have taken Josh Rosen at quarterback previous year, but if Kingsbury believes in Murray that much, they should take him all the way and just trade Rosen.

Now, if he slips out of the first round, then we're having a different conversation.
