Kyler Murray’s National Football League future to be decided before the draft in April

Kyler Murray’s National Football League future to be decided before the draft in April

Less than a year ago, the Arizona Cardinals committed to Josh Rosen as their franchise quarterback.

It started innocuously enough when then-Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said this back in October about Murray.

That shift in the National Football League, undoubtedly helped by the success of Lamar Jackson with the Ravens as a speedster dual threat with a smaller frame, has apparently made Murray, once a lock to play baseball, suddenly unsure. Given his abilities as both a passer and runner, combined with the success Mayfield had as a rookie, the expectation is Murray would be a first-round pick and have success in the NFL. Is it time for him to draft Tom Brady's heir apparent? I've followed him since he was a sophomore in high school. Not one, which at quarterback is impossible to do but he's done it. As Pro Football Talk reported, a current NFL general manager said the quarterback will go on the opening night of the draft. In his one full season of college baseball at Oklahoma, Murray posted an impressive.954 onbase-plus-slugging percentage. Arizona still sees him as a franchise cornerstone and brought in QB whisperer Kingsbury to unlock his potential.

This became a huge deal due to the fact that the Cardinals do indeed have the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

A's fans everywhere only have to endure the "what if's" until Monday, Jan. 14 at 2 p.m. PT at the latest - that's the deadline for underclassmen football players to declare for the 2019 NFL Draft.

However, the Cardinals do have a lot of holes to fill, so they could opt to trade down and add a bevy of extra picks.

The Redskins have a need at quarterback, so if Murray is available when Washington is on the clock at pick fifteen, should they select him? Russell Wilson is the best comparison, but even he was a third-round pick.
