Slusser notes that declaring for the draft does not mean the Heisman victor will decide to reject his $4.66 million deal with the A's outright, but it does increase the chances of him ultimately choosing football over baseball.
Maybe he was just speaking broadly with cliches or a touch of an overstatement, but Kliff Kingsbury once said he'd take Kyler Murray with the No. 1 pick in the draft.
Kyler Murray's draft status could put that in doubt.
Jose Mourinho received an absolutely massive pay-off after Man United sacking
But Mourinho insists he will not say anything negative about United's players in the final stages of his reign at Old Trafford. "Who would not like to have Mourinho? ".
I've already said the Cardinals should take Murray with the first pick now that Kingsbury is running the show. In the week leading up to the game, Kingsbury was asked to talk about Murray and just raved about the eventual Heisman Trophy victor. Before taking over as Texas Tech's head coach in 2013, Kingsbury was the Aggies offensive coordinator and helped recruit Murray, who was starring at Allen High School. I've followed him since he was a sophomore in high school. With so the options limited unlike last year's draft, the team might have received some good news on Wednesday night as one of the best quarterbacks in college football is reportedly declaring for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Tickets for the Saints were high as it seemed a rematch between the Cowboys and Saints was on the horizon. Dallas has already beaten New Orleans this season, but that win came at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
She adds that another revealing sign could come on February 15 when Murray and the rest of the A's position players are due at spring training. After Rosen had one of the worst rookie seasons since 1970, he's not exactly the most desirable candidate. Arizona still sees him as a franchise cornerstone and brought in QB whisperer Kingsbury to unlock his potential.
For instance, Ohio State edge rusher Nick Bosa is widely regarded as the top prospect in the draft, and he would fill perhaps the biggest need for both the 49ers and Raiders.
