Kyler Murray Expected to Declare for NFL Draft

The Oakland Athletics own Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray‘s baseball rights after selecting him in the first round of the 2018 MLB draft, but they expect him to declare for the NFL draft this weekend per reports. 

Murray and his agent Scott Boras have never officially ruled out the NFL despite persistently denying interest in deviating from an MLB-based plan. Murray will likely need to make a decision by the end of February, according to Susan Slusser of The San Francisco Chronicle.
