A's reportedly still have spring training plan for Murray

Report: Athletics Expect Heisman Winner Kyler Murray To Enter NFL Draft

The A’s Reportedly Expect Heisman Winner Kyler Murray To Enter The NFL Draft

Six NFL executives told FanSided they expect Murray - the Oklahoma quarterback, Oakland A's outfielder and Heisman Trophy victor - to have an agreement in place with any NFL team that might draft him before the actual draft begins on April 25.

While many onlookers note that Major League Baseball's guaranteed salary structure should be more enticing to Murray (or any player), that's somewhat of a presumptuous argument.

Murray won the Heisman Trophy this season with Oklahoma and saw his draft stock soar.

Marcus Morris, Jaylen Brown Move On After Shoving Match
Both Morris and Brown are fierce competitors and Boston was getting blown out in South Beach pretty much all night on Thursday. They began the season three months ago as the consensus favorite to represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals.

According to BetOnline via Tulsa World reporter Eric Bailey, odds have been released on Murray's potential as a first round National Football League draft pick, and what he does as either an National Football League player or baseball player.

Declaring for the draft would not affect Murray's bonus with the Athletics as he could still return to them; a source told Slusser there's "no harm" in looking at the NFL. In 2016, the top two picks were dealt with the Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns recouping a pair of first-rounders and several more early picks.

ESPN draft experts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay have noted that Murray could be a first-round pick, and ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Wednesday that Murray was getting "first-round feedback" regarding the NFL. After his introduction, Beane opened the floor to Murray, who answered each question with poise, which isn't a surprise considering the media attention he's received since high school. Murray has a lot more pocket passing skills than you'd expect for a small, athletic quarterback.

Bolton Asked Pentagon About Bombing Iran
The Pentagon complied with the National Security Council's request to develop options for striking Iran, the officials said. The three mortars, however, landed in an open lot and nobody was harmed in the attack.

Obviously, Kingsbury is now in Arizona, where the Cardinals own the first overall pick.

If, indeed, Kingsbury succeeds in making good on his promise about snatching up Kyler Murray, he has to figure out where to put Josh Rosen. Russell Wilson is the best comparison, but even he was a third-round pick.
