New Cardinals coach once said he'd draft Murray No. 1

With a report that Oklahoma QB and Heisman Trophy victor Kyler Murray may enter the NFL Draft, the Internet was abuzz with where he might go.

(In reality, it'd be slightly higher, as draft bonuses in the National Football League increase incrementally each year just as they do in baseball.) As for fans hoping to see this generation's version of Bo Jackson or Deion Sanders, the report from Slusser and Schulman flatly indicates that there's "no possibility" of Murray playing both sports. His agent, Scott Boras, had insisted Murray was committed to playing professional baseball and would attend Spring Training. "I'd take him with the first pick in the draft if I could".

Entering the draft doesn't necessarily mean that Murray will forgo his commitment to the Athletics, but Slusser and Schulman report that one source indicated to them that Murray is indeed leaning toward selecting football as his profession rather than baseball. However, having just won the Heisman at Oklahoma and with the idea of what a starting quarterback in the NFL can be and look like, the 5'10 (listed) Murray may have more of a shot at being a high NFL Draft pick than he would've been five years ago. I know he's signed up to play baseball, but he is a dominant football player.

If Murray passes on the A's, they would not receive a compensation pick for him, but they would retain his MLB rights if he should opt to play baseball at some future date.

Kyler Murray faces a very interesting decision this week.

What sport do you think the quarterback should go with?

Fast forward less than three months, and Kingsbury is now the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals, who happen to own the first pick in the draft. 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.
