Kyler Murray
QuarterbackQB
Oklahoma Sooners
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Murray could have easily taken the money and started his professional baseball career after being selected ninth overall by the A's in the MLB Draft, but he's putting it on hold to be Oklahoma's starting quarterback for one year. Murray is ready to get his shot after a circuitous first three years of his college football career that included a transfer from Texas A&M and a year as Baker Mayfield's backup. It's easy to forget just how talented Murray, a former five-star, is as a dual-threat option. In limited action last year he completed 18 of 21 passes for 359 yards and three scores. He also ran for 142 yards on just 14 carries. Murray running Lincoln Riley's offense with elite team context over a full season will net absurd production both on the ground and through the air.

Officially declares for NFL draft
QBOklahoma
January 14, 2019
Murray announced on his personal Twitter account that he has officially declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.
ANALYSIS
This development is more procedural than anything, as declaring for the draft doesn't commit Murray to football over baseball but rather keeps the quarterback's options open for the time being. A more indicative display of his future will come when Murray decides to join the Athletics for spring training or not.
