Apparently heís going

To try and play two sports in 2019... I donít know what to feel about that
No thank you.  
Tom in NY : 1/9/2019 10:29 pm : link
That's all.
This is one of the more interesting things to happen in this

years pre-draft period. Playing two sports these days is crazy. Now if he does decide to go for just football, where will he be drafted???
I canít say

Iím not intrigued, but his size is so bothersome
I unfortunately  
MookGiants : 1/9/2019 10:39 pm : link
don't think he'll hold up because of his size as far as injuries go.

But if he can somehow stay healthy, he will be a good pro QB. I have very little doubt about that.
I keep saying this

He is Doug Flutie the second. Take a chance on him and watch the magic happen. Whoever drafts him willn not be sorry, he is talented, tough, and a gamer.
Heís going in the dust, and probably high

Heís not giving up baseball if the advisory board didnít say Round 1

First not dust lol
I know you didn't mean it  
Mike from SI : 1/9/2019 11:16 pm : link
but I do think the thread title is slightly misleading. It looks like all signs are pointing that way, but it's not official. (Maybe that distinction doesn't mean much to most, but it does to me. I may just be a persnickety bitch, however.)

ďTexted several nfl execs just now on Kyler. Everyone responded 1st round.

I asked at WR? All said QB. No brainer for Murrayď

Iím intrigued

you can win with so many types of QBs in todayís NFL. Iíd be fine taking a shot on him, would prefer a trade down to get him though.

So he is going to play football and  
mattyblue : 1/10/2019 1:17 am : link
baseball? Has there ever been a QB that has done both professionally before? I think he would easily go first round as a QB even with the size concerns, but if he wants to do both sports I donít think he will go in the first or second.

Maybe I read this wrong and he is going to give up on baseball for the NFL.

In other words, none of them thought he was worth a 1st round pick.

How would he survive as a running back and not a qb? If we are talking strictly physical stature. I just donít get the logic. Thin lower body. Imo He doesnít have the body type to be a running back. If he fails at qb he would be beyond stupid to attempt a career at running back over trying his luck in the mlb
There are three things to consider about Murray.  
Ira : 1/10/2019 8:28 am : link
1) He's an excellent passer.
2) He's an excellent runner.
3) He's very short for a quarterback.

My thoughts as well!
Does not go through his progressions....

He goes to his second read once. Look at his highlights (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RIw2sEuR0P4
) Around the 2:10 mark.... Other than that he's going to his first read the whole time. Unlike Drew Lock who's head is on a swivel constantly looking off his receivers!

If he tries to play both sports,  
81_Great_Dane : 1/10/2019 1:45 pm : link
he's going to have a lot of time on minor league bus rides to study the playbook and film. Which is weird.

Seriously, I wonder how long he'll be up for that. In the NFL, he'll be playing at the highest level int he sport, highly paid, performing in front of huge crowds in first-class facilities, staying in nice hotels on the road and enjoying all the perks that come with being a "big league" athlete. In baseball, he'll be a minor leaguer, riding the bus and putting in months of work in front of tiny crowds in small-to-medium towns, in small, second-rate stadiums.

Plus, it's one thing to do the two-sport thing as a CB/OF like Deion Sanders or a RB like Bo Jackson, it's another to do it as a QB, where there's so much mental preparation. Plus training camp -- the bulk of practices for NFL teams -- are during baseball season. How's that going to work?

I guess if he puts in the time at rookie and A-ball, if he doesn't make it work in football he'll be able to catch up and have a chance at a MLB career starting in his mid-20s. But it sounds unworkable to me.
Maybe a bit Mayfield-esque?  
Coach Red Beaulieu : 1/10/2019 2:38 pm : link
Worth kicking the tire.
he's RG3 before the injury  
GiantsFan84 : 1/11/2019 4:43 pm : link
i love him as a player. manipulates defenders with his legs, hits guys in stride and has a very strong arm and can throw from many arm angles.
