BREAKING: Kyler Murray Chooses Football Over Baseball, Enters NFL Draft

His season statistics eclipsed those of his former Oklahoma team-mate (and fellow Heisman winner) Baker Mayfield, who was the number one overall pick in the 2018 National Football League draft and put in some excellent performances for the Cleveland Browns after winning their starting quarterback spot. It has been an uncertain rumor wether or not Murray would declare due to his possible career in baseball, but he has chose to keep his options open and declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Above all else, Murray would be a far cry from the type of quarterback the Giants have had throughout their history, and especially during the Eli Manning era.

Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray has been making headlines this week thanks to his decision to enter the National Football League draft. That means, somewhat miraculously, the Dolphins would pass on Murray, the dynamic 5-foot-10ish Heisman Trophy victor. Oklahoma is the first school with have Heisman-winning quarterbacks in consecutive seasons and the fifth overall with winners in back-to-back years. He can't play both baseball and football (at least not well), so he should follow his heart (and his growing up in Texas and recently declaring for the NFL Draft tells me his heart is with football). It is also reported that Murray would want $15 million to stay with baseball. Position players for the A's report to spring training on February 15 in Arizona, while the National Football League combine begins February 26 in Indianapolis.

Murray was also selected by MLB's Oakland Athletics at No. 9 overall in that league's own draft. This would make him the shortest quarterback in the NFL.

Politicians, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Ontario Premier Doug Ford, tweeted messages of support. Three people died; two were believed to have been on the bus, and one person was waiting on the platform.

Well, this season at Oklahoma, Kyler Murray had an even better season than Mayfield did a year ago - in the same offense and with largely the same personnel.

According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, NFL scouts he has talked to have Murray going slightly lower.

This past season for the Sooners, he completed 260 of 377 passes for 4,361 yards and 42 touchdowns with seven interceptions and a passer rating of 199.2.
