Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray has committed to playing in the NFL. The Heisman Trophy winner, who was picked in the top 10 of the 2018 MLB draft by the Oakland Athletics, announced Monday that he is "fully committing my life and time to becoming an NFL quarterback." He'll be at the combine later this month as he prepares for the 2019 NFL draft.
Murray, who had 54 total touchdowns and just seven interceptions for the Sooners last season, is ranked as the No. 2 quarterback in this class by ESPN draft experts Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay. Kiper had him No. 8 overall in his latest Big Board, and McShay pegged him to the Dolphins at No. 13 in his latest Mock Draft.
Murray is only 5-foot-10, but Kiper called him "one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks I've ever seen" in December, and there will be buzz around him leading up until the draft on April 25.
We asked our experts to weigh in on Murray's NFL potential and perfect fit in this draft:
Where is Murray's perfect fit -- which team would you love to see him take him?
Matt Bowen, NFL writer: Cardinals. New coach Kliff Kingsbury can build his system around Josh Rosen. But if we are talking about a perfect fit, where Kingsbury can also utilize the creativity of his QB-designed runs/run-pass options to mesh with his traditional spread/Air Raid pass concepts? Then it's Murray running the show. And that would cost the No. 1 overall pick.
