A's expect Murray to enter NFL Draft

A's expect Murray to enter NFL Draft

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. That reality, as noted by Baseball America's Teddy Cahill at the time (Twitter link), made the selection of Murray one of the riskier draft picks in recent memory.

Texas Tech showed continued interest in Murray and offered him a scholarship once Kingsbury came aboard. Would he want to play in the National Football League and MLB at the same time? "That was never my intention and I think the world of that university, I think the world of (USC head) coach (Todd) Helton, the job he's gonna do there".

Is there any chance of a Kingsbury-Murray union?

He declined to reveal whether he likes playing football or baseball better.

Still, baseball will always be there for Murray if he does choose the NFL route, much like it was for former Florida great Tim Tebow, who tested the NFL waters and now plays for the New York Mets' minor-league affiliate. The Cardinals traded up to the 10th pick in the 2018 draft to nab Rosen, who had all the makings of a top quarterback but slipped in part because of his outspoken nature. That starts on February 26. However, a porous offensive line did not help Rosen's cause, as he was one of five quarterbacks to be sacked on more than 10 percent of dropbacks.

What are the Cardinals likely going to do with the No. 1 pick?

Given his abilities as both a passer and runner, combined with the success Mayfield had as a rookie, the expectation is Murray would be a first-round pick and have success in the NFL.
