Kyler Murray Declares for Draft

Recommended Posts

I know there are questions about his height, but he has some great traits.  It will be interesting in seeing what team takes chance on him, he is a very intriguing prospect.

From a money standpoint it is a very good move for him. He received a little over 4 million for signing with the Oakland A's as a 1st round baseball pick. Lamar Jackson who was the last pick of the 1st round in the 2018 NFL Draft got a little over 8 million GUARANTEED. He stands to double his money just by getting into the 1st round and people are projecting him to make it into the 1st round. If it were last year when there were so many good QB prospects in the draft it wouldn't have been in his best financial interest to do this, but with a thinner QB class he has a legit chance at being a first round pick.

I don't know, I have seen him projected in the top ten picks.  However, that could be an over estimate, if he was 6'2" he would probably be a top pick.  Teams seem to be more willing to take a chance on shorter QBs than they used to be.

 

On the other hand, he could be using his ability to get drafted in the first round of the NFL draft in order to get a better deal from the A's.

I heard some say he's 5'8".

 

I think he's much faster than Flutie and more athletic.

 

Rumor is Arizona's new HC loves him and could draft him #1(I think they have the first pick) and then flip Rosen.

It will be interesting for sure.

If anyone takes him in the top 10, they'll either be a genius or never GM again.

 

Exciting player, but....

I'm no baseball expert by any means, but with the MLB not having a cap, I believe he could get paid way more over the course of his career as an elite baseball player than an elite NFL player.  He might get more out of the gate with the NFL, but he could make more career earnings in the MLB.

 

Edit: Not only that, but baseball isn't as physically demanding as football.  He won't have 300 lbs linemen trying to pummel him into the ground on each play, so his career longevity might be a bit better there.  He also gets to play in nice weather whereas football happens in the fall and winter.  Without knowing much about his physical abilities as a football player or a baseball player, all things being equal, I'd say go to the MLB

All things considered I would agree with you if you could guarantee that he is going to be elite. Baseball is a sport where it is not uncommon for a first round pick to never really make it. My opinion was based on the known money he would make. Because of that, if I knew I was going to be a first round pick, I would go with the NFL. But I do agree that an elite baseball player (even an average player) will make more than an NFL player.

    • I didnt think they would. It would just continue to draw out the saga. NFL really needs too restructure the tag, it can be incredibly unfair
    • 1. Arizona: Nick Bosa DE Ohio State Cardinals grab the best player in the draft. Unless they decide to move on from Rosen, Bosa will be the pick at number one. Pairing him up with Chandler Jones creates a dynamic pass rushing duo. 2. San Francisco: Josh Allen OLB Kentucky Their OLBs are highlighted by Dekoda Watson, Brock Coyle, and Malcolm Smith. Allen is an EDGE player that the 49ers are in desperate need of. Allen is the defensive playmaker they need after an underwhelming performance from Solomon Thomas and with Reuben Foster gone. 3. NY Jets: Quinnen Williams DE Alabama MikeKirsch's comments:The only notable DL under contract for the Jets is Leonard Williams. Adding a second Williams is the best move for the Jets at 3. 4. Oakland: Rashan Gary DE Michigan The Raiders need a better pass rush. If they had a player like Kahlil Mack last year their pass rush would have been better. The Raiders ranked dead last with 13 sacks last year. The Giants, 31st in sacks, had 30. To put that into comparison further, Mack had 12.5 sacks. Gary has the physical tools to play inside or on the edge. 5. Tampa Bay: Jonah Williams OT Alabama With the continued emphasis on the high passing attack with Arians, a solid pass protector will be needed on a regular basis. Williams can play both G and T. 6. NY Giants: Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State The Giants need to address QB sooner than later. Manning is not getting younger and he is not getting better. Manning is still serviceable and Haskins can sit a year under Manning. 7. Jacksonville: Cody Ford OG Oklahoma Jacksonville gave up the 3rd most sacks in the NFL with 53. I'm making this selection under the impression that the Jags acquire Nick Foles. Ford can play both T or G and improve this O-line.  8. Detroit: Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson EDGE and TE are the most pressing needs for Detroit. I expect them to go EDGE here as Ansah is probably gone after an underwhelming season under the franchise tag. 9. Buffalo: Ed Oliver DT Houston With Kyle Williams retiring and Lotuleilei having an average season and will be 30 when the season is over, Bills need to grab a young, promising DT. Once viewed as a potential number one pick in this draft, Oliver is still a very solid player that should be picked in the top 10.  10. Denver: Greedy Williams CB LSU Chris Harris Jr turns 30 in June and Bradley Roby is a free agent. Even if Roby is brought back, Williams would still be a good move for the Broncos to solidify the secondary. A QB is possible here, but I don't expect them to go QB until next year since Flacco still has 2 years on his contract. 11. Cincinnati: Drew Lock QB Missouri Might be a slightly surprising pick here, but I think it's time for the Bengals to start fresh with a new QB. Dalton just hasn't gotten it done for them for the past 8 years. With Dalton turning 32 in October and with 4 winless postseason appearances, new HC Zac Taylor gets a new QB to work with after working with Jared Goff. 12. Green Bay: Jachai Polite DE Florida GB needs to strengthen their pass rush. Polite has explosive pass rush skills with great speed. Clay Matthews is in a decline and it's time to find his replacement. 13. Miami: Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma Tannehill has been average for the majority of his career, along with injuries. Miami will look to start fresh at QB with the Heisman winner. I don't think Murray will have any major struggles with his size.  14. Atlanta: Christian Wilkins DT Clemson Even if Grady Jarrett comes back, Wilkins is a solid pick to pair him up with Jarrett. Wilkins was a consistent 4 year starter at Clemson and can become another young defensive force for ATL like Jarrett, Jones, McKinley, and Neal. 15. Washington: Daniel Jones QB Duke Alex Smith may never play another down in the NFL. Some said this about Luck, but Smith's injury is far more severe and turns 35 in May. Jones had a great Senior Bowl by winning MVP and should be able to take over the Washington offense. 16. Carolina: Montez Sweat DE Mississippi State Had off the field issues in 2016 when he was dismissed from Michigan State, but had a great senior bowl week and had solid interviews. Carolina needs to replace the future HOF Peppers. Sweat is a good add for the EDGE. 17. Cleveland: Devin White ILB LSU Cleveland's offense had a very good year with Mayfield leading the way. However, their defense was not very good. Browns need to add a defensive playmaker like they did last year with Denzel Ward. White is a 3 down LB that makes this defense better. 18. Minnesota: Greg Little OT Mississippi The Vikings need a solid T to give their $83 million QB a better opportunity. Little is an upgrade to their offensive line.  19. Tennessee: D.K. Metcalf WR Mississippi Titans need another WR opposite Corey Davis for Mariota. Metcalf has incredible size for a WR and is a big play threat. 20. Pittsburgh: Mack Wilson ILB Alabama Steelers need to add an ILB to fill the void of Shazier. Wilson will be a good player alongside Vince Williams. 21. Seattle: Byron Murphy CB Washington Seattle adds another CB to their duo of Flowers and Griffin. Murphy is an aggressive CB with good ball skills that will fit in the slot in the Seattle secondary. 22. Baltimore: Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma Ravens need to add a WR for Lamar Jackson to throw to. Crabtree didn't live up to his 3 year/$21 Million contract. John Brown and Willie Snead had decent numbers but can be upgraded. Brown has elite speed and is a dynamic deep threat. 23. Houston: Jawaan Taylor OT Florida Texans gave up the most sacks in the NFL with 62. They are in desperate need of solid pass protectors and Taylor will help bring those sacks allowed down. 24. Oakland: N’Keal Harry WR Arizona State Gruden replaces Amari Cooper with N'Keal Harry. Gruden gets a big WR (6'3" 216 lb) that has great hands combined with elite acceleration and breakaway speed. 25. Philadelphia: Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson Eagles could use a CB as well, but DT is a more pressing need that Lawrence meets. 26. Indianapolis: Dre’Mont Jones DT Ohio State DL is a big need for the Colts. Jones has rare athletic skills such as range and flexibility. Very good pass rush skills. Run defense needs improvement but is a great athletic DT that can rush the QB. 27. Oakland: Josh Jacobs RB Alabama Gruden gets his second offensive toy with Jacobs. Lynch turns 33 and will be a free agent. With Chris Warren III and DeAndre Washington as the only RBs under contract for now, Jacobs is a solid piece to revamp the Raider's rushing attack. 28. LA Chargers: Devin Bush Jr. ILB Michigan DL is also a need, but the Chargers could use more quality LBs. Nwoso had a good finish to the end of the year, but more talent is needed at the position. Bush is on the smaller side at 5'11" 230 lb, but has three down LB skills that are comparable to Devin White. 29. Kansas City: Deandre Baker CB Georgia The Chiefs 31st ranked pass defense needs a solid CB. Baker can come in and be a solid rookie starter for KC. 30. Green Bay: T.J. Hockenson TE Iowa The Jimmy Graham $30 Million experiment is not looking to favorably now for GB, and it's time to give Rodgers a solid, young TE. 31. LA Rams: Jaylon Ferguson DE Louisiana Tech Pairing up Ferguson on the D line with Donald is a great move for the Rams. The FBS all-time sack leader (45 sacks) joins the 2-time DPOY that is coming off a 20.5 sack season. 32. New England: Noah Fant TE Iowa While it's possible that Gronkowski comes back for another season, NE has to look towards the future and draft the successor to the often-injured Gronkowski.

    • It won't be a problem as long as both of them play at a high level. If one falters, then their approach will be looked at with more scrutiny. So lets just hope we can continue to improve. The best thing we can do is play as a team and stay focused. In the end, talent is a big indicator of who wins as well, and Luck and Nelson will be depended on. Coach Reich just has to come up with a gameplan that fits everyone and sell them on it. As long as the team is one unit and plays well, this shouldn't be an issue.
