Kyler Murray Declares For 2019 NFL Draft

Jan 14, 2019 6:04 PM

Kyler Murray has declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Murray can choose between the NFL and MLB depending on his draft stock.

Murray has a contract with the Oakland Athletics that includes a $4.66 million signing bonus.

The A's selected Murray with the ninth overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft. The A's supported Murray's decision to enter the draft, but they could be under increased pressure to improve his contract.

In just his first season as a starter, Murray threw for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns and ran for another 1,001 yards and 12 touchdowns in leading the Sooners to the College Football Playoff semifinals this year.

Kyler Murray To Declare For NFL Draft, Leanings Towards Football

Jan 9, 2019 10:31 PM

Kyler Murray is expected to declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Murray was drafted ninth overall in the 2018 MLB Draft and has a $4.66 million bonus with the Oakland A's.

“Contractually, it is not a big deal,” one source with knowledge of the situation said. “No harm in doing so.”

Murray could still opt to be in the A’s camp, but the NFL scouting combine begins Feb. 26.

One source said Murray is leaning towards football.

The A’s would retain Murray’s professional baseball rights should he join an NFL team, retaining the possibility he could play for them at a future date if football did not pan out as expected.

"He'll be a first round pick," said one GM in a text to Mike Florio.
