Kyler Murray undecided about doing drills at combine

Kyler Murray undecided about doing drills at combine Kyler Murray has fully committed to the NFL, but he still remains a bit wishy-washy about his approach to the upcoming 2019 NFL Scouting Combine. Murray still isn’t sure if he’s going to participate in the field drills with his peers in Indianapolis.

Now that Kyler Murray has finally announced that he is choosing to continue forward with a career in professional football, it’s hard not to wonder where he’s going to end up.

A 21-year-old out of the University of Oklahoma, and a two-sport phenom who excelled in both football and baseball, Murray is arguably the most intriguing quarterback entering the 2019 NFL Draft. He capped off his junior year with the Sooners by throwing for over 4,300 yards with 42 touchdowns and just seven interceptions, leading them to a 12-2 season and winning the 2018 Heisman Trophy.

Murray has franchise quarterback written all over him, and some NFL team will make him its quarterback of the future in April.

Report: Several NFL execs believe Kyler Murray will be first-round pick

Report: Several NFL execs believe Kyler Murray will be first-round pick There are plenty of question marks surrounding Kyler Murray as an NFL quarterback, but the way scouts view him is not nearly as important as the way team executives feel about the former Oklahoma star. For that reason, Murray still has a great shot at being taken in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Jason Cole of FanSided spoke with six NFL executives who believe there’s a good chance Murray will be a first-round pick. However, he will obviously have to commit to playing football before any team invests that much in him. I talked to 6 NFL execs who think Kyler Murray is a possible first round pick.

If Murray declares for the draft it could throw the top half of the first round into upheaval.

Where will Kyler Murray go in 2019 NFL draft ? Some odds are out for where Kyler Murray could land in the 2019 NFL draft and the Arizona Cardinals are near the top of the lists. CBS Sports: Kyler Murray picked by New England Patriots at No. 29. Chris Trapasso writes: "Bill Belichick has made a

Chances are it won’t be the New England Patriots. But, just for the sake of offseason discussion and entertainment, let’s imagine that it was.

Let’s imagine that Bill Belichick has his sights set on Murray, and he trades up into the front half of the first round to ensure that he can take him. Or, perhaps due to his size, Murray slides down toward the bottom of the first round (or possibly even out of it — no quarterback under six feet tall has gone in the first round in over 60 years, and Murray is just a mere 5-foot-10), and Belichick is right there to scoop him up.

Kyler Murray to the Patriots? Heck, it would be the most exciting thing to happen in New England since… well, winning the Super Bowl in February. We would have a Heisman-winning quarterback, who made all kinds of headlines in college football last year, backing up Tom Brady in 2019. And whenever Brady does eventually decide to retire, we would already have a quarterback ready to take over who is just as intriguing as Brady himself.

A’s still unsure if Kyler Murray will report to training camp

A’s still unsure if Kyler Murray will report to training camp Position players are scheduled to report to training camp on Friday with the Oakland A’s , and the team is still uncertain if first-round pick Kyler Murray will be among them. According to Carrie Muskat of The Associated Press, Murray has a locker and a No. 73 jersey waiting for him at Oakland’s facility. However, the A’s do not know if Murray intends to report to camp later this week, and general manager David Frost said Sunday that team executives have been in contact with the former Oklahoma star’s family.

Kyler Cole Murray (born August 7, 1997) is an American collegiate football and baseball player, who plays for the Oklahoma Sooners. He previously played college football for the Texas A&M Aggies.

New England Patriots Patriots NE. Where would Murray go in the NFL draft ? There is some evaluation left to do, be it at the NFL scouting combine or Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray has announced he will enter the NFL draft , but the Sooners quarterback can still weigh his baseball options.

Forget Sam Darnold and Josh Allen, and whatever newbie replaces Ryan Tannehill in Miami. The Patriots would still have the most exciting quarterback in the AFC East.

I don’t have a crystal ball or anything, so I can’t predict how Murray’s career would turn out. But working in New England under Belichick and/or Josh McDaniels, it’s hard to imagine that Murray wouldn’t at least be a pretty solid NFL quarterback.

We’d be going from “Tom Brady and the New England Patriots” to “Kyler Murray and the New England Patriots.” Sounds kind of fun, doesn’t it?

But don’t forget that we’re just using our imaginations here. It doesn’t seem likely that Belichick would target a quarterback like Murray in the draft; Murray is a big name prospect, and Belichick tends to lean toward the quarterbacks that fly under the radar. Hence, Tom Brady getting drafted in the sixth round in 2000.

Also, with Brady still playing at a high enough level to win Super Bowls, the Patriots aren’t necessarily in the market for a successor just yet. It might be another year or two before a legitimate heir to the throne is chosen.

But still, just imagine watching Roger Goodell stroll to the podium and announcing, “The New England Patriots select… Kyler Murray, quarterback, Oklahoma.” You can’t look me in the eye and tell me that wouldn’t be a blast.

A’s not giving up on Kyler Murray, which could complicate his NFL prospects.
When it comes to Kyler Murray’s commitment to football, actions will speak much more loudly than words. The problem for the NFL team that picks Murray could be that his ultimate action — a return to baseball — comes only after a draft choice has been squandered on him. Yes, Murray says he’s fully committed to football. But with the A’s still committed to pursuing Murray, Murray’s commitment can flip back to baseball just as quickly as his commitment flipped away from it. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports that the Oakland A’s remain determined to sign Murray to a baseball contract.
