Kliff Kingsbury once said he'd draft Kyler Murray first overall

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

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the Athletics expect their former top pick to declare for this year's NFL Draft.

Already a top-10 draft pick of Major League Baseball's Oakland Athletics, Murray was expected to make the full-time move to the diamond after his historic 2018 campaign for the Sooners.

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.

Okay, so this one is kinda insane.

Murray is at the top of the list for a bunch of teams, especially for a team that has the #1 pick, in which the Arizona Cardinals now have.

Manchester City showed Burton Albion 'respect' in 9-0 win - Pep Guardiola
Kyle Walker waltzed in for number eight after sublime play from Mahrez, who has assisted three of the last four City goals. It really is a complete mismatch when you look at any possible angle between these two teams.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Chronicle reported Murray would not play both sports due to the demands on an National Football League quarterback. While declaring doesn't guarantee Murray will play baseball instead of football, but it certainly increases that chance.

If Murray choses football and does not play baseball, he would have to pay back his signing bonus to the A's, who would retain Murray's draft rights if he played in the NFL.

Murray, 21, complicated things by leading Oklahoma to an 12-2 record and a spot in the College Football Playoff, winning the Heisman Trophy along the way.

College football fans can dream of an Air Raid union made in heaven of Kingsbury and Murray playing at University of Phoenix Stadium, but there are plenty of obstacles in the way of that reality. Spring training begins for the A's on February 15, and it seems unlikely that he would be able to prepare for football's combine at the same time as he was attending his first major league baseball camp. And on Wednesday, news broke that Murray intends to enter the NFL Draft. Don't be surprised if the Dolphins were to target him, despite Murray being vertically challenged and small in terms of quarterbacks.
