NFL Draft 2019: Odds favor Dolphins taking Kyler Murray

Kyler Murray

First, it means that he will be foregoing his US$4.6 million (NZ$6.75 million) contract with the Oakland Athletics and will have to repay US$1.29 million of the money that he has already received.

The A's will retain Murray's rights, so they don't get a compensatory draft pick in next year's draft. The odds of a high-school senior player being drafted by an Major League Baseball side are around one in 200.

Murray did not mention baseball or the A's in his statement. He says the team always told Murray that they are open to him attending the draft and combine to gather as much information as possible.

Murray was listed at 5-foot-10 and 195 pounds by Oklahoma. Mike Maccagnan loves to wheel and deal and the Jets could use some extra middle-round picks after last year's deal for the No. 3 pick.

"We took the best athlete on the board and what we thought was probably the best baseball player on the board too", A's general manager David Forst said Monday.

Bo Jackson and Deion Sanders played both football and baseball, but Jackson was a running back and Sanders a cornerback.

Murray is still a risky pick given the fact that if he isn't drafted by a team he likes or at monetary amount that he wants (NFL rookie caps still apply) that he could opt to jump to baseball.

The Cardinals attempted to end to the speculation by publicly supporting Rosen yesterday. Murray put together one of the single greatest seasons in college football history with over 5,300 yards of total offense to go along with 54 touchdowns, while beating out Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa for the Heisman Trophy.

This would likely require Murray being one of the first three quarterbacks selected in the 2019 draft.

If another run on quarterbacks happens, it could push a player down to the Bengals in the first round they wouldn't normally have access to unless they traded up. The Cardinals were also included because of Kingsbury's affinity for Murray. Scott Boras represented Murray in baseball.

According to a report from Jason La Canfora, Murray is signing with Erik Burkhardt of Select Sports Group. The uncle Eric Kumerow was a first-round pick of the Dolphins.
